Very rare complete road bike for sale, from the master framebuilder Licinio Marastoni. Known for his pioneering work with cast fork crowns and bottom bracket shells, Marastoni’s work is marked by his attention to detail, clean lug work and distinctive smoothed-out use of braze-ons. Only his top frames were given the name ‘Marco’, in memory of his late son. These were custom made, and were only available to preferred customers. We would estimate this one dates from the early 1980s. This particular example measures a square 54 x 54cm, with a 100mm stem. A very versatile road bike for anyone looking for a real piece of history.
The bike is fitted out with a Campagnolo Super Record groupset, with a derailleur from 1983 and a crankset from 1986. Very little tooth wear to the chainrings. With 6 speed Regina CX freewheel. Polished Super Record headset, in great condition. Campagnolo Record hubset, 32 holes front and rear. Freshly laced to NOS black anodised Nisi Laser tubular rims, radial front and radial/3x rear. Original Record quick releases. Tyres are NOS Hutchinson Krono (made in Italy). Wheel set is in top condition, and will undergo a further truing before shipping. Campagnolo Super Record bottom bracket, with titanium spindle. The axles on the brakes have been upgraded to titanium, and the nuts lightened with the Cobra aluminium tuning kit. Selle San Marco Concor Superleggera saddle with aluminium rails. 100mm 3ttt Criterium stem and Competizione bar, with black Benotto bar tape.
Really a very nice example. The only flaw is a little damage to the down tube decal on the drive side, and a couple of small chips to the paint. Everything else is in top condition, chrome is bright and paint is intact. All components work well, frame is straight, and there are no dents.
