’80s Wilier Triestina Super Leggera

We recently refurbished this delightful Wilier Triestina Super Leggero road machine. After having received a loving makeover in our workshop it only sojourned in our display area for a short while before being sold to a new keeper, and making its way back home to northern Italy.

The bike was in remarkably good condition for a machine nearing forty years of age, with very few blemishes to the lustrous copper cromovelato finish. It tipped the scales at a mere 8.6 kilos (without pedals). The frame features unusually short rear drop-outs and six large slotted cut-outs to the bottom bracket shell, and is mated to the fork by means of a Wilier inscribed F.T. headset. The Super Record crankset and stem were suitably pantographed with Wilier engravings.

All in all a most stylish bicycle, a splendid example of the very finest of the breed. We were a little bit sad to let this one go, in fact!
