Do you remember the epic 1952 Tour de France picture of Coppi and Bartali passing a water bottle? If you look closer you also see a man popping out from a convertible team car behind them. That is exactly Umberto Marnati, mechanic of Fausto Coppi in the 1950s, later frame builder at Legnano and Bianchi Reparto Corse.
Having learnt lacing wheels and welding very young, Umberto Marnati decided to start manufacturing bicycles under his nem. And as it happend, he opened his own atelier in Milan - led by his son Daniele from the 1970s onward - a city with a tradition of excellent frame builders. And Mr. Marnati was no exception. Via Delfico no. 26 soon became a meeting point of enthusiasts who were keen to ride artisan racing frames which were largely renowned for unique attention to details.
This Marnati Corsa Speciali perfectly shows how accurate and meticulous Marnati frames are. This bicycle is a true heap of refined details. Just as the fine cut-outs on the lugs representing Marnati's emblem and the precisely milled and pantographed parts like headset, seatpost or shifters.
On the technical side, this Marnati Corsa Speciali is equipped with an original Campagnolo Super Record groupset. The rest is completed with fine parts like 3ttt pantographed stem or Ambrosio rims. Simply high-end components!
If you are looking for a truly hand-crafted vintage racing bike, do not miss the chance to make this Marnati Record yours! Suitable for Eroica events.
