Somec Pista

Not bad.


Beautiful Somec Pista. Very rare to find a vintage Somec with a fixed gear set-up and its original components.


Mid-80’s classic: Italian-made with famous Columbis SLX lugged tubing. 54cm with tight, racing geometry. This bike flies. By no means perfect: i.e. not some museum piece–meant to hit the streets.

Original, iridescent pearl paint: chrome detailing. The decals are rough (see pics) but they still make ’em for cheap online.

Top-notch vintage parts. Full Suntour Superbe Pro.

Chainring/cranks: Suntour Superbe Pro
Bottom Bracket: Suntour Superbe Pro
Rear cog (fixed): Suntour Superbe Pro
Rear hub: Suntour Superbe Pro
Seatpost: Suntour Superbe Pro
Headset: Suntour Superbe Pro
Stem: Suntour Superbe Pro
Rear track dropouts: Gipiemme
Front hub: Period-correct Dura-Ace, radial laced with original bladed spokes.
Dropbars: Velo Orange

I also own the awesome Suntour Superbe chain ring/cog set that goes along with the ride. Complete: four chain ring sizes: 49, 50 and 51 tooth (48 is on the bike) plus five Suntour cogs and original case.

I’m selling bike and set together as they are a pair, originally purchased together and (clearly) one of the set is on the bike. Price together = $1500. Will consider separating if no offers.

**The tires are lace-ups: they could likely use replacing at this point but ride fine.
[Sorry, Brooks saddle is NOT included.]
