Patelli Road Bicycle 56cm Campagnolo Super Record Columbus AIR SL 1980s L'Eroica


In stock

SKU: 332984167362 Category:


Professional 56cm Patelli road bike for sale, from their professional workshop in Bologna. 

Appears to be a custom frame, as it lacks the model designation that can be found on most 
other Patelli’s of this era. 

One of our top bikes at the moment, this Patelli has several exquisite features that set it it apart 
from the rest. The rear brake cable is hidden in a groove that runs underneath the top tube. 
The lugs have been left partially open at the fork ends and rear dropouts, and semi-internal 
cable routing for the rear derailleur. Small braze-ons have been added to get the cable routing 
perfect on the way to the front and rear derailleur. The fork crown is one of the most intricate 
we have seen in a long time, and the lugs are custom with small details. An early use of 
Columbus AIR tubing for the seat stays lend the frame a sleek appearance, and the rest 
of the frame is made of Columbus SL steel. 

Painted in high quality cream with pale blue logos. The lug details are also filled in the same 
pale blue. Really very tasteful & classic paint scheme! 

Fitted with Campagnolo Super Record / Nuovo Record groupset.
Drivetrain is full Super Record, with a 1982 rear derailleur and 1984 crankset in amazingly 
well-preserved condition. Original steel spiral housing. Crank arms are perfect with only 
the smallest amount of wear to the chainrings (52/42 teeth). Aluminium ZEUS 2000 6 
speed screw on freewheel, in great condition. Chain is a Regina, with a lot of life left in 
it to ride a many L’Eroica’s.
Brake levers are Super Record, as are the brakes – domed quick release levers with alloy 
brake pad holders. Hoods are white NOS Campagnolo, freshly installed. Shifter levers are 
Campagnolo Record, with the insides drilled and filed out to leave only a little aluminium. 
Headset is chromed steel Nuovo Record and turns smoothly, bottom bracket is also Nuovo 
Record and is in great condition. 
Two bolt Campagnolo seatpost with unique high quality Patelli pantograph (razor sharp edges) 
and pantographed 100mm 3ttt stem. 
Genuine leather Selle San Marco Supercorsa saddle in black, with chrome steel rails. 
Wheelset is Campagnolo Record low-flange hubset, laced to grey anodised NISI EKIP rims 
(very rare & never seen before). 32 holes front and rear. NOS vintage 22mm Hutchinson 
Super Corsa tubular tyres, skinwall to give this professional ride that perfect look.
Campagnolo seatpost bolt. 
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.
