Very sought-after road racing bicycle from the legendary Italian bike racer Marcello Osler.

Marcello Osler was an important lead-out man for Roger De Vlaeminck back in the day on the iconic team
Brooklyn Chewing Gum. Later he went on duty for Francesco Moser. After his successful career as a professional
cyclist he started a bicycle shop close to Trento Italy where he sold the best bikes of the golden era including his own
brand “Osler”.

His frames were famous for their lightness and sophisticated details. This bicycle only weighs 8.5kg without the
pedals ! The head tube, fork crown, seat stays and BB-shell are lovely pantographed with the Osler Logos. The
Bottom Bracket shell is marked with “Formula 1″ which suits the approach that Osler took on his pro bicycles.

This particular machine is in first class condition. The frame is soldered from high quality Columbus SL (superleggero)
tubes and fitted with Campagnolo dropouts. The rear drop out has the Portacatena threading.

The bicycle is very high end, its built with beautiful craftsmanship and it shows what pro’s could build back in the day. To suit
this high level of achievement this bicycle has been equipped with a complete Campagnolo Super Record custom group set.

Campagnolo Record hubs have been polished, regreased and built with silver Fiamme Ergal tubular rims that are in great condition.
Black leather saddle comes from the legendary Italian manufacturer Selle San Marco, producer of top quality components that remain
extremely sought-after to this day. The Supercorsa Concor saddles are in our opinion one of the best formed Classic saddles out there.
We decided to mount a black Cinelli stem, with black painted flutes and black anodised chainrings.

Overall the bike is in great condition, showing little signs of use. All components are in excellent condition, are fully functional and its ready
to ride. There are a few minor scrapes to the paint that appear to be from storage rather than abuse. No dents or cracks. Tyres, cables bar tape
are new. Wheelset can be exchanged for an equivalent set of clinchers if you prefer.

We’ve set the bike up according to our taste, with a view to preserving the classic look and style. In saying that, if you would like to make some
small changes (saddle, bar tape etc), then often this is possible. We have a large inventory of classic components acquired over the last 15 years
and are happy to do our best to accommodate any request. More photos available if you would like some details.
