Very rare and well-preserved Wilier Triestina Pista track bike, from the early 1980s. Original Wilier Cromovelato ‘Ramato’ finish, consisting of a translucent coloured top coat of lacquer applied over a fully-chromed frameset. Difficult to execute and almost impossible to imitate, the Ramato finish was reserved solely for the top-of-the-line Wilier frames.
We’ve built this beauty up with an appropriate selection of components. We started with a period-correct Campagnolo Record Pista groupset, in excellent condition. Steering is precise thanks to a chrome steel, loose ball Record Pista headset. Pedalling power is transferred to the track through a 167.5mm Record Pista crankset, with original Italian-threaded bottom bracket and 50t chainring. The wheels are comprised of Record Pista hubs, 28 front / 32 rear, laced to Swiss-made Assos tubular rims clad in black Continental Podium tyres. A pantographed and enamel detailed Wilier Triestina 27.2mm seatpost supports a black leather 3ttt saddle. Up front a 120mm 3ttt stem with enamel detailed Wilier pantography grips a 38mm 3ttt pista handlebar wrapped with shiny gloss black Ambrosio bar tape.
