After leaving the Legnano Team, in 1948 Gino Bartali founded his own team: Cicli Bartali. The bicycles for the racing team and for the commercial use were produced until 1955 by the brothers Santamaria in Novi Ligure - good friends of Fausto Coppi - then by the Margherita brothers, and starting from 1960 by Galmozzi (San Pellegrino Team).
This Gino Bartali is a true gem of the late 1940s. According to the head badge, Campagnolo Cambio Corsa shifting and the frame number, the bicycle was manufactured in 1949 by the brothers Santamaria in Novi Ligure.It is equipped with almost the same gearing which Gino had used the year before ti win his second Tour de France. Then of course there are Ambrosio stem and quality brakes.
Whats more, some of the components, namely bottom bracket, headset and the sadfle are branded with the very name of the true icon of cycling sports - Bartali.
An authentic rarity, an early Bartali bike. The perfect opportunity for all true Gino Bartali admirers.
