Professional quality Chesini ‘Innovation’ road frameset, made from Columbus EL OS tubeset in the early 1990s.
Lugged construction with a sloping top tube, quite novel for the time! The frame features an ‘aero’ braze-on for the downtube shifters, and internal cable routing for shifters and brakes. Full-chrome seat and chain-stays, chrome head-tube lugs and full-chrome unicrown EL fork.
Chrome is in top condition with no flaws, and the paintwork is too with just a couple of very minor chips from storage.
The frame appears to be unridden, with signs of a bottom bracket being tentatively mounted but not fully tightened down, and very light traces of a rear wheel. No sign of downtube shifters being mounted.
Amazing frame, in top condition. Perfect for building up with a classic Campagnolo groupset!
