Don’t know if this is a special bike – we’ll leave that to the experts – but we do love classic (by which we mean pre-1970s here) Celeste.

Vintage 69(?) Bianchi Corsa Special Bicycle Campagnolo Universal 3ttt 54/56 cm ( c to c seat/top tube). Very good condition. Head tube lug is stamped 2E69300. Front fork tips and fork crown are chromed. Chrome is in very good condition. This is a very original example of a late 60s or early70s Bianchi racing bike. The serial number and some parts lead me to believe this is a late 60s model, but the axle nuts indicate a couple years later or that they have been replaced. Check pictures closely before bidding!

Pro team bike – Complete PANTO kit

An extremely rare find, a real masterpiece made by Colnago in 1975 and kept for all these years exactly as it was once out of the Colnago workshop for the first time.

A truly professional bike, built for a professional rider, please get a look at all details in the pictures below on this page and see for yourself.

Back in 1974 the UCI introduced a limit in pro team sponsorship. Bicycle producers were then able to sponsor only one team per season. At that point Ernesto Colnago decided to create a second brand to sponsor a second professional team. That brand was named ColnEr. Acronym of COLNago ERnesto and the team that was sponsored was the “IJsboerke – Colner” from the Netherlands.

The bike here listed comes with all the features seen on the pro team bikes from 1975, original paint-job, complete panto kit, same choice of components and accessories. It appears to be one of the original team bikes, but we have no precise information about that.

Equipped with a complete Campagnolo Nuovo Record gruppo.

This bike is an real rare item, highly collectible.

Colnago bikes were also made under the name Colner only for a short period of time between 1974 and 1975, and exclusively for a professional use.

The bike was really well kept for all these years, it shows a few spots with superficial oxidation here and there, mostly on down tube and top tube in correspondence of the rings that hold the housing in place. The Frame have been deeply checked resulting perfectly aligned and solid.

The frame doesn’t show any other major flaw such as dents or cracks. The bike have just been serviced. The tubular tires installed are not original and should be replaced with new ones.

All parts have been inspected and tuned up, resulting in perfect working condition.

It comes with a complete set of pantographed accessories.

Make sure to check out all the pictures in the gallery below on this page.

More technical details and details about the frame’s size are following too, find them in our “scheda tecnica” below.


Postscript: the auction closed at $1,077, which seems like a great price for such a bike.

Eddy Merckx Corsa Team Faema

This is an extremely pretty frame…

emcf $_57 (1)

This Eddy Merckx Corsa from about 1986 is painted in the famous Team Faema paint scheme of metallic white with metallic red accents. The bike is built with a complete Campagnolo C-Record group that is of early vintage, with Cobalto brakes, stamped logo on the crank arms, fully hooded rear derailleur cage, plain friction shifters (pre-Syncro), and aero brake levers with old-style rubber hoods that can be converted to non-aero style. Besides the stamped logo, the crankset is the early version that is about 2 mm thinner in cross section. Completing the C-Record group are low-flange hubs with skewers, polished aero seatpost, front derailleur, bottom bracket with alloy cups, headset, and aero pedals with Campagnolo straps. Rounding out the build are a Cinelli 1A stem and Cinelli Campione bars, Special Edition Turbo Saddle, a rare Regina hollow pin chain, and a Dura Ace freewheel (one of the best ever made). Genuine Campagnolo cables and housing are used throughout. The cork bar tape is Cinelli.



Very Light wear and tear from cable rub, heel rub, chain, etc.

This bike is in excellent condition, with no dents or rust issues. The components are all in very good condition: all bearings are smooth and some components are new old stock. The bottoms of the pedals have some scrapes. There are some minor chips in the paint which have been touched-up. All cable ends have been soldered rather than using crimps. This bike was ridden in dry conditions.
