Patelli ‘Champion Special’ Road Bicycle. 55cm


Complete road bicycle, with early 1980s frameset from cult Italian framebuilder Patelli and matching Campagnolo Super Record groupset.

We have a special preference for Patelli framesets here at Cicli Berlinetta, as their frames show great finishing work and quirky details. This particular frame has brazed cable guides on the head tube instead of the down tube, for use with bar-end shifters only. Reinforced lips on the head tube, in the style of Masi. Killer fork crown, deeply engraved in relief with the Paletti logo. All the lug work is nicely finished, as one would expect on such a quality frame. The tube ends are left open where they meet the dropouts, in the signature Patelli style.

The bike is equipped with a Campagnolo Super Record groupset, including Campagnolo bar-end shifters. Wheel set consists of polished Record hubs, laced with flattened spokes to polished silver aluminium rims. 27.2mm fluted Campagnolo Nuovo Record seat post with Selle San Marco Concor Supercorsa Confort black leather saddle. Bar and stem are Cinelli, also with fluting on top. Everything is in top condition, shifts, brakes and rides well.
