Mario Vicini was teammate of Giusppe Olmo and Cino Cinelli in 1940 but soon left competitions to grab torch and file and started manufacturing in 1942 high-quality frames in Cesena, his hometown.
Being a small artisan producer, Vicini did not build many bicycles which however became very popular amongst enthusiasts worldwide for their quality and typical attention to details.
By taking a closer look at this Vicini Cromovelato is immediately clear why Mr. Vicini bikes are still beloved by collectors from the five continents. The frameset dates back to the mid-80s and is made of Columbus SL tubes which underwent a fully chroming. A red coat creates then a very typical translucent effect called "cromovelato" indeed. Cherry on the top are the refined engrevings to the headtube, fork crown and lugs.
Re the components, this Vicini is fully equipped with appropriate period Campagnolo Super Record components. The bicycle has been completely inspected, oiled and adjusted by our mechanics. Hence it is ready to ride!
A vintage bicycle for enthusiasts who love details and craftsmanship. Suitable for Eroica events.
