61cm road frameset from the top Italian framebuilder Gianni Sancineto.
One of the only builders to continue building steel after the rest moved to the new fad of aluminium, Sancineto’s work just kept improving throughout the ’90s. Their ’90s work takes lessons learnt from
the years of lugged steel construction and combine it with modern advancements in lightweight tubing
to create superlative frames.
This particular example is crafted from Columbus Neuron tubing, dating from 1995. NOS – New Old Stock – never used. The paint is typical Sancineto, lavish but never excessive. Airbrushed green, purple and blue accents weave between each other over a pearl white base coat. Decals are black with gold accents. Engravings on the bottom bracket shell have been filled with gold paint.
It is in perfect condition, never having been built up, not even for display. Only a very small paint chip by the Campagnolo seatpost bolt (included). Perfect for building up with any post- 8 speed Campagnolo groupset.
All other paint and decals are in impeccable condition.
Top Italian frame for a reasonable price – just compare it to any custom steel frame builder still in business !
