De Rosa Mid-70s Track Bike All Chrome with Cinelli & Campagnolo Components.
Up for auction is one of the finest examples of Italian track bikes around, a handbuilt De Rosa all chrome track bike equipped with an original Cinelli Unicanitor suede saddle, Cinelli 70s chrome bars and track stem and 100% Campagnolo period components. Made in the mid 70s in Italy and engraved with the De Rosa logo on the frame. This bike was used in the 70s by a member of Milan’s track team and has been preserved in near original state since. The chrome is in excellent condition with only a small amount of pitting under the bottom bracket.
The rims have been updated to Velo Orange 36 spoke for a modern day ride but laced to the original Campagnolo 36-hole high flange hubs. New Vittoria Super Corsa clincher tires are also included and have been ridden for less than 20 miles.
This original Italian racer is assembled only with 100% period Campagnolo parts as shown below. Finer details include matching yellow Campagnolo bar caps, De Rosa matching yellow pedal straps and buttons and yellow team decals from the same period.
An original track bike in excellent condition that saw action from the Milan team in the mid 70s. It is in excellent condition whether you want to ride it everyday or just stare at it hanging on your wall, either option will bring you great joy, however, we believe that bikes are made to ride and this one will last you a lifetime.
