Top quality road bike frameset from Patelli, the renowned framebuilding shop of Bologna.
Dating from approx. 1986/87, the frame has been lightly used and is excellent condition. Some paint chips have been touched up. It has a single layer of chrome underneath the paint, and a double layer on the fork chainstays and seatstays.
Rear derailleur cable runs underneath the right chainstay and then pops out near the dropout. Patelli’s signature work by the dropouts is on show, with the tubes left open to save weight and provide full drainage.
All threads are in good condition, and there are no dents or signs of any crashes. Frame has been widened to 130mm, the alignement checked, and it fits a cassette hub well.
This is your chance to get a top quality frame at an excellent price! We find Patelli’s workmanship to be every bit as good as De Rosa, Colnago, Pinarello, Casati, and they continue to be a very high quality framebuilding shop.
