Top quality classic road bicycle, from the revered Italian framebuilding shop of Paolo Guerciotti!
Made from Columbus SL, the bike is in excellent condition. We carefully disassembled, checked, cleaned and polished everything, and installed a matching 8 speed Campagnolo Chorus Ergopower groupset.
The frameset is in top condition with original paint, finished to a high standard by the shop of Carlo Dossena. There are some very nice airbrush details that are best inspected up close. Full chrome curved fork with Guerciotti fork crown, and three-quarter chrome rear triangle. All chrome is bright and in top condition with no rust. Campagnolo dropouts front and rear.
Wheelset consists of 2x 36 hole Campagnolo hubs laced 3x front and rear with Sapim spokes to polished silver Rigida DP18 medium-flange rims. The DP18 rims are nicely aerodynamic and robust enough to take the stress of larger riders.
Bar and stem are both made in Italy by 3ttt, the main competitor to Cinelli in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. The bar is optimised for Ergo levers, and measures 40cm c-c. The stem is a 3ttt ’84 model, and is 125mm long – a perfect fit for the size of the frame.
Crankset is a 172.5mm Campagnolo Chorus model, with 53/42 chainrings. Front and rear derailleurs are also the matching Campagnolo Chorus models, in great condition.
An original (not the recent reissue) black leather Selle Italia Flite saddle tops off the build on a polished Chorus seatpost – one of our favourite saddles. It’s both very comfortable and light in weight.
Perfect for everyday riding, the bike is a great combination of modern technology and classic style.
