Chances are, unless you are from Monza, Italy, you have never caught a glimpse of a classic steel Casati in the flesh. If you have, you would remember where you were when that occured, maybe even what you ate on the day. For a brand that is nearing its centennial celebration, Casati bikes have always been a purely Italian affair. Because the culture of cycling is so celebrated in Italy, it is entirely possible for companies such as Casati to not only survive, but thrive. An environment such as this gives framebuilders the chance to express themselves, rather than follow the newest trends.
The top flight model for Casati during the style explosion of the 1980s was the Casati Gold Line, a Columbus SLX steel skeleton was utilized on these extraordinary and beautiful racing machines. Renowned for their flourishes of detail, the ribbed seat stays, brake bridge, bottom bracket,lugs and fork crown are celebrated with hand etched engravings on this one of a kind frame. Those details though can only be appreciated after you process the rest of this striking work of art. Internally routed cables clear the path not only for aerodynamics, but admiration. If the gold paint wasn’t enough of an eye catcher, the chainstays and fork have been plated in gold! Still in fantastic condition, with only the slightest signs of wear, we were convinced it was seldom ridden in its previous life.
Bikes however beg to be ridden. So we have kitted out this beauty with only the best. A Campagnolo Super Record groupset, a Casati pantographed 3ttt stem and bar and Nisi tubular rims have turned this frame into a golden chariot ready for the road. The bike has been completely tuned, serviced and built by our expert vintage workshop. If you are a collector or simply someone who appreciates amazing performance with design, this Casati Gold Line could be for you! Your chariot awaits.
