Chesini Precision road bike, complete with a Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset and
3ttt handlebar and stem.
Chesini are in our opinion one of the most underrated Italian framebuilders, consistently
turning out top quality frames for racers and enthusiasts alike, and they are still in thriving
business today. Their top frames were named ‘Precision’, and you can see why as soon as
you look at the bike.
Painted in an elegant shade of champagne gold, the bike displays many nice touches –
the rear dropouts are filed to hexagonal corners and drilled. All of the lugs are nicely
worked, and the headtube lugs are reinforced in the style of Masi. The top tube slopes
gently down from the saddle to the stem, the first European example from this period
that we’ve seen – check out the space above the headtube.
Custom made ? Probably.
The Nuovo Record groupset is in top condition, and is running nicely with a Shimano
Dura Ace 6-speed freewheel. The wheelset consists of Campagnolo Record hubs,
matched with dark anodised Ambrosio rims – perfectly trued and running straight.
The 1981 rear derailleur has been cleaned up with new grease, and the spring
tension adjusted. Sachs chain, new cables and bar tape complete the bike,
making this bike one to hang on to.
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 13 years.
All in all, a top quality, professional grade racing bike with no dents, cracks, rust or
any other problems. This bike meets the entry requirements for any L’Eroica-style event.
