– lightly used with normal wear
– entire frame has been repainted (due to a necessary rear dropout repair) with the original color (except for the chrome chain stays); the Giuseppe Olmo signature and head badge are correct; the other decals are slightly newer iterations; the original model name was “Competition Leader” not “Racing”
– frame has a slew of scratches & chips along the top tube that have been masked by red paint; blemishes have been made subtle, but are still noticeable
– no structural damage of any kind; no cracks, dents, or buckles

Straight out of the 1990s

Warning: shrinking violets need not apply—we expect this bike will attract plenty of attention (for better or worse).

Now it just needs a highlighter pink (or yellow) saddle to complete the look.


Campagnolo Veloce complete group-set – Columbus Cromor tubing

Classic racing bike from Olmo, mod. Sanremo, lugged constructed in the early 90’s out of Columbus Cromor tubing and still equipped with the original Campagnolo Veloce group-set.

The parts installed are in perfect working condition. The bike went through a complete service and is now ready to race.
New tires, wires and handlebar tape.

The frame shows a few scratches and chips but no major flaws.

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 $521.99. Someone got a cool bike (in our opinion)!

Unless we’re mistaken, this seems like a deal to us as we’ve typically seen these advertised for way more. Plus, “Super Gentleman” must surely be one of the funniest ‘lost in translation’ names for a bike, ever…

Vintage RARE Olmo Sport Ligure Columbus Steel Excellent – $495 (Hastings on Hudson)

Selling a beautiful near mint Olmo Sprint Ligure bike. It’s an italian racing bicycle with top quality components. The frame is very high quality ultra light columbus steel of course. The handlebar is tty. It even comes with what looks to be the original bicycle pump that says olmo made in italy on it. Truly a special bike in incredible condition for its age. The bike is in excellent condition the only thing is it needs new tires which you can get cheap. Perfect commuter bike for the city for a great price. Beautiful paint job. 59cm frame. Selling cheap so I can get rid of it and give it to someone who can enjoy and appreciate it.
