Viner is a bicycle brand founded by VIviano NERozzi in 1947 in Pistoia, close to Florence (Italy). In the 1960s they started to sponsor teams and became pretty successful. In the 1970s a Dutch Team became world champions on Viner bikes! Later, in the 1990s then, Viner was technical sponsor of such illustrious teams as Mapei.
This Viner Special Professional pista was built in the 1980s for track racing. The frame, ehich have been refurbished in elegant gray color, is made of light Columbus tubes. It is obvious from the first glance, that a very skilled framebuilder. The lugs are clean shaped, pantographes are there but what stands apart are the rear dropouts - so delicate yet strong.
This track machine is completely equipped with nice Gipiemme parts, including the pedals. Additionally, the seatpost and the stem are pantographed by Viner.
Great piece of cycling history which will enrich any collection or for avid track riders.
