Gios Torino Professionalretrogrouch73106/13/2018 01:34 PM
I have an '85 and it is a wonderful bike. Easily of equivalent fit, finish, and master framebuilder quality of my mid 80's De Rosa Professional. Brazing is even and clean, as are the lugs, and mitering of the tubes. The brazing and handfinishing of the rear dropout to seatstays/chainstays is the cleanest and most beauiful I have seen on any frame(even better than my '73 Cinelli SC). These frames are less common than the Gios Super Record but seem to sell for much less and represent a bargain in the current market for vintage lightweights.
F.H. Grubb Headbadge1989Pre04/30/2018 03:39 PM
Used from late 1940's (after Wimbledon badge) until 1963, with one interruption: Holdsworth's 1953 "transition" badge. In 1964, the Grubb badge was changed to the "crossed flags" badge, which continued up until the end of the Grubb name in 1977. The mounting holes on the pictured badge are 35mm apart.
DeRosa Professionalretrogrouch73104/29/2018 03:22 PM
My first lugged steel framed bicycle was a De Rosa Professional(late 80's SLX model). The frame is beautifully made with clean, even brazing and lug work. Paint quality is among the best factory paint of any of the lower volume, Italian master framebuilders. This frame as a perfect balance of a comfortable, buttery smooth ride and pure performance. Climbs as good as anything I have ever ridden. It decends and carves corners with razor sharp precision and complete control. It is no wonder Eddy Merckx preferred a De Rosa Professional over the others.
Chesini Arena1989Pre04/25/2018 01:17 PM
These were made of Columbus SL. "Arena" is pantographed on the underside of the bottom bracket.
Zeus Competition (1974)andyscherer02/18/2018 07:50 PM
I bought a Zeus Pro in 1973. Frameset was Durifort, components pretty much the same as this Competition.
LOOK KG 86 "Bernard Hinault"sbarner02/18/2018 06:58 AM
Photos from the 1986 Tour clearly show that the bikes used by the La Vie Claire team had a slightly different brake bridge than the frame(s) in these photos. The earlier bridge did not clamp around the stays as these do but was bonded to the inside of the stays. The design may have been changed to strengthen the connection. At least one photo shows Hinault's bike with the Bernard Hinault down tube decal on the left side, while others show the "spiel" decal on the right. One wonders if Lemond's frame had a different left side decal! (Lemond had been picked by LVC for the win, but Hinault did not accept the role of domestiqué, fighting to the finish.) Another pic shows Lemond climbing the Alp l'Huez on a Look with a Reynolds decal on the fork. The team frames were painted silver, which would have allowed many substitutions that would be difficult for spectators to spot.
Marcel Kint (Road Race)bonnvelo01/29/2018 04:34 PM
Lovely frame! Apart from the fork crown, this is exactly the same as my Dossche Sport (Gent). The circular cutouts, combined with the cutout in the shape of a letter D in the bottom head lug is typical for Dossche Sport. Maybe these frames were built for M Kint by Dossche, or maybe it is actually a Dossche and someone put M Kint transfers on it?
Mondia SuperluxElmermaple01/17/2018 11:36 AM
Just concurring: Mondia was a Swiss company.
Alan R30 CarbonioMavicmaniac12/06/2017 04:50 PM
R/30 model needs a 27,2 mm seatpost. Teka team became to use in 1989 R/30 in carbon or in alloy. Vertical tube also needs braze on front derailleur.
Oria ML 25Orlando8411/27/2017 01:35 PM
According to Oria documentation, this tubing was plain gauge, drawn 0.7-0.8mm thick.
