53.5cm Cicli Conti Classic Lightweight 1980s Road Racing Bike

Conti

GB475

You may not have heard of Cicli Conti, if we’re completely truthful we hadn’t either, not until we got our little mitts on this rather nice 80s race machine. Turns out they’ve been running since 1927 in Firenze, Italia, and the shop’s still going strong today.

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of travelling around the bike shops and markets of Italy, you may have noticed the array of bike makers names you’ve never heard of. If so, you are forgiven, as every tiny village had a local frame-builder (so it seems at least), and the quality of craft on display is usually up there with many of the much more recognisable marques.

Cicli Conti however do have many classic bikes to their name, although this is one of the finer examples we’ve seen, if we do say so ourselves.

A genuine lightweight at 9.57 kg, meaning the tubing is likely Columbus SL, the ends are finished courtesy of Gipiemme and as you can see there was no expense spared with the chrome chainstay & fork, complete with Conti pantographed crown. As expected, it’s built using Campagnolo equipment throughout, with a mixture of Nuovo/Super Record, Triomphe & Nuovo Gran Sport. All very classically done, and with 3ttt, Rino & San Marco finishing kit. All very typically (and wonderfully) Italian.

As with all our bikes, it's been fully stripped, inspected & professionally polished & re-built. The frame is straight & true without any dents or dings - please inspect the photos for cosmetic condition as we photograph the bikes so you can see the exact condition of the bike before purchasing.
