Description

Extremely rare Fausto Coppi time trial bike for sale.

One of the most eye-catching rides to come through the shop doors in recent times, this has it all. The curved Oria tubeset combines to give a well-proportioned frame, and it’s all finished in a gold base coat with black crosshatching, and black airbrushing around the lugs. Paint and decals are in excellent condition.

The deep-gold anodised C-Record crankset and seatpost are the most immediate pieces to jump out at you, engraved with italicised Coppi script. We’ve certainly never come anything else like them, and we’ve just about seen it all here. The 52/39 chainrings are in great condition.

Next is the wheelset, featuring FIR hubs laced to high-flange silver rims. 18 hole, 650c FIR Aria in the front, and a 24 hole, 700c FIR Super Rialto in the back. Radial laced non drive side, with DT Swiss bladed aero spokes.

The dark anodised ITM Crono TT handlebar has been paired to a black 3ttt 80mm stem with Coppi pantographing. The original black hood rubbers are in perfect condition, with no tears, and are still soft. No scratches to the lever arms.

Campagnolo Delta brakes are in great condition and work smoothly.

The C-Record rear derailleur has been mirror-polished, and will require only a dab of polish every once in a while to keep it looking perfect.

The pantographed and anodised seatpost is in top condition, and is topped with an original black leather Selle Flite saddle.

Seat tube is approximately 52cm c-c
