Vintage Road Bike Steel Frame-Set – 51 cm
The Grandis bicycle brand was started in 1930 80 years ago when Silvino Grandis built his first frame. Silvino was quickly becoming passionate about bikes and in 1957 he worked as the official mechanic of the ‘Veneto A’ Cycling Team. Whilst working as their official mechanic, Silvino witnessed the victory of his athlete Mina Bariviera in the amateur Giro d’Italia. As Grandis gathered more and more expertise in the cycling sphere, he began to make bikes for sale. Grandis continued to grow as a brand in the Cycling world and it exists still today! You can still visit them in Verona, Italy.
