This extremely eye-catching fully chromed road frameset is branded Marino, which we believe was a small bike shop in Italy. It really is a very nice frame indeed, the long tangs with cut-outs on the fork, head tube and bottom bracket lugs are the kind of subtle attention to detail only master craftsmen bother with. Probably dating from the mid to late 1980s this frame set will build into a real head turner that'll no doubt attract attention, plus it'll sparkle in the sunshine.
If you're taking part in L'Eroica or a similar vintage event, this frame is of the correct age, so you won't be disqualified for being a rule breaker!
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.
