This is probably one of the nicest ladies fast road bicycles we’ve ever assembled! This black and chrome frameset features gold decals and accents. If only we had a few more like this one in our vaults!
Three more mid-priced bikes which we’ve recently refurbished, released from our store so that their new owners may enjoy the pleasure of regular rides around town and the surrounding countryside.
We’ve just built up this neat little 48cm Basso Astra steel road frameset into a sweet bike. We assembled it with a nice 8 speed Campagnolo groupset, and Record hubs laced to new-old-stock Mavic grey anodised eyeletted rims. The red main tubes were matched with red handlebar tape and red cables. It sports a black Flite saddle and Schwalbe Lugano tyres with red accents. We finished it off with some Look pedals.
High end steel road racing bicycle from the respected builder Mario Rossin. Columbus tube set, filed head lugs with delicate hooks. Midnight blue DuPont System paintwork with faded petrol blue highlights to the top and front of the main tubes. Bright yellow and orange decals with pinstriped seat stays. Paintwork in overall very good condition, albeit for some small chips which have for the most part been carefully retouched by hand by a previous owner. Decals are protected beneath a final top coat of DuPont System clear lacquer. Engraved semi-sloping fork crown with pentagonal Rossin motif detailed in yellow enamel.
Lettered seat stay caps detailed in yellow. External brake cable routing with three slotted brazed fittings along upper side of top tube. Pump fitment to rear of head tube. Engraved rear brake bridge with two pentagonal R motifs. Engraved Campagnolo drop outs front and rear, with tension adjusters. Stamped serial number on non-drive rear drop-out. Derailleur cables routed through internal guides in underside of bottom bracket shell. Brazed front derailleur fitment.
Assembled with a period Campagnolo Super Record group set. 170mm Strada crankset detailed in orange and black enamel. Fluted 27.2mm Campagnolo seat post with yellow and Petrol Blue enamel detailing, topped off with a period Concor Supercorsa saddle in black leather with a nice patina. Wheelset comprises Record small flange hubs laced to dark grey anodised eyeletted 36-hole Ambrosio Montreal Medaille D’Or rims. Wolber tubular tyres with orange rubber, which match nicely with the frame decals. 3TTT Competition drops and matching pantographed aerodynamic quill stem with Del Fedele script on the sides, initials F.D. on the front. Three long slotted reliefs on the top, accented in petrol blue and black. Midnight blue bar tape finished off with chrome 3TTT end caps and orange tape over yellow cable outers. New black Campagnolo brake lever hoods for ergonomic riding comfort.
A characterful classic ’80s racer with competition pedigree, delicately fettled and ready to be ridden fast.
Hardly had this tidy white ’81 vintage Mexico appeared on – ahem – that popular auction platform, before it was snaffled by a collector in far off Thailand. What was it that so took their fancy? Perhaps it was the pantographed Super Record component group, maybe it was the period 3t Record 84 stem adorned with the engraved signature of Ernesto Colnago, or might it have been the grey anodised Ambrosio ‘Durex Metamorphosis’ rims? This simple and elegant Colnago is a tidy example of the breed, and now it gleams under an Asian sun. The one thing we’re short of here at Cicli B, the home of stylish vintage racing bicycles, where the streets are currently the same colour as this bike.
We just sold this little beauty to a collector of classic Italian steel road bikes who hails from far away China. This particular bike is an early example of a limited series which commemorated Eddy Merckx’s record-setting 1972 Mexico City hour record.
This highly distinctive road bike is distinguished by 24 carat gold plating of the headlugs and fork crown. The blue metallic paint and yellow accent graphic decals were in remarkably good condition for a bicycle of this age. The drive side rear dropout displays a single digit serial number. We believe this to be only the fourth frameset built in this Mexico Oro limited series.
The bike was built up with a complete Campagnolo Record groupset, featuring pantographed cranks and chainrings, seat post, stem and brake levers. Mavic GP4 rims are fitted with tubular tires. Of further interest, the crankset has been subject to subtle machining and polishing to shave off even more weight, whilst retaining those good looks.
Celebrating it’s 30th birthday this year, this 1982 Daccordi Pista is a true piece of track heritage, as it was ridden by Oliver Hoidn, member of Team Baschin (the Stuttgarter sporting goods and cycle shop and team sponsor), in the first edition of the Stuttgarter Hofbräu Six Day Race in 1984.
Campagnolo Super Pista group, 3TTT bars and stem, Concor Super Corsa saddle and 3TTT seat post, Mavic tubular rims, Columbus SL tube set, 58cm center to center, available for €1500,—
This L’Eroica bound Patelli Champion, one of the latest offerings from our Berlin workshop, just left the shop in the hands of a happy new customer. Drawing on our classic trademark Cicli Berlinetta style, we paired this Champion up with a Campagnolo Nuovo Record group (embellished with hand-milled crank spiders, chain ring and shifters), Tufo 28mm Diamond tubulars (perfect for the rolling dusty gravel strewn strada bianchi of the Tuscan countryside) with Fiamme Ergal rims, a milled and pantographed Cinelli stem, Cinelli handlebar, black Rolls saddle from Selle San Marco, and inset accents to match the goldenrod lettering.
We can’t wait to see this gorgeous machine in action this coming October—take a look below to see exactly why!
