It manufactured bicycles just during the 1970s and 1980s and the early frames were actually built by Rauler: the brothers Raul and Reclus Gozzi were responsible for Ernesto Colnagos pantographs with their Company Rauler; overthrow with Ernesto, they started making their own bikes and frames.
This Bellini dates back to the brand´s dawn, approximately to 1977. It has been restored by the Possenti Pietro workshop in Milan and the previous owner named it "Ancilla" (Latin for maid).
