Faggin have been building frames at their family-owned factory in Padua since the end of the Second World War, and though small they have still made a big impact on the cycling scene. In their illustrious history the firm has built bikes for race-winners on the road, on the track and in cyclo-cross, they also equipped the Italian national team for the 1984 Olympics. Even today each and every Faggin is hand-built, fitted and customised for the rider, so every bike is unique and special, there are no 'production' Faggins!

Built from Columbus SLX and finished extremely well, this large but lightweight road frame is typically Faggin. The metallic dark grey to light grey fade paint job with chromed head tube lugs, rear triangle and fork look stunning, and the finely made seat cluster and internally routed rear brake cable are signs of serious quality. The semi-vertical dropouts imply the frame was built somewhere around the end of the 1980s or early 90s which is inline with the general look of the frame too.

The frame's been carefully checked by one of our mechanics to confirm the alignment's correct and there's no damage to the threads. If there are any minor issues worth noting we will do so in the overview section below. Please take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition of the frame before you buy.
