Ciclo Galmozzi Milano classic bicycle from mid 1970s! We are very excited to present you our very first Galmozzi road racer, a fine and very rare piece of art from Milan, Italy.
Francesco Galmozzi can be certainly enumerated among the best frame builders from the prestigious Milanese tradition. Thanks to an investment of Artemira Gerbi - daughter of the famous cyclist Giovanni Gerbi, aka "Il Diavolo Rosso" - in 1922 Galmozzi founded the brand Gloria, the period in which he manufactured the "Garibaldina model". A few years later, he joined the Cicli Magri, which he would acquire in 1938 and so founded his own brand: Ciclo Galmozzi. According to his surname GAL-Mozzi (Gallo in Italian means rooster), he chose a rooster as logo.
Mr. Francesco Galmozzi did not produce many bicycles. He was actually a tailor more than a builder, an artisan incredibly good at manufacturing frames on cyclists' measurements and needs. His son Angelo joined the family business in 1959 and their atelier in Via Melchiorre Gioia in Milan soon became a hotbed for some of the finest Milanese racing bicycles. Memorable was the Galmozzi Specialissima from 1961, a bicycle under 10kg which led Rik (Hendrik) Van Looy - Faema Team - to his second victory of the World Championship!
The perfect bicycle to fall in love with. An eye-catcher for any vintage cycling race like Eroica or La Superba!
