Atala Record Superbe Road Bicycle 1960
Atala has a successful racing history which is one of the longest in European cycling.
Founded in 1908 in Milan, Atala sponsored a professional Team from its start well to the 1990s. They won the first Giro d'Italia in 1909 with Luigi Ganna, the second with Carlo Galetti, the fourth as a team. Over the years many famous riders rode for Atala, Giovanni Pinarello, Urs Freuler, Gianni Bugno, just to name a few.
They knew pretty well what a winning bike needs to be like and it was the way they built theirs. An Atala road bike is always good for a race.
And this Atala Corsa classic road bicycle is a fine example.
It stems from the first half of the 1960s and there is a festival of interesting details going on. The frame which shows some stunning cut-out and chromed lugs has been professionally refurbished and it is equipped with proper components of the era. So you will find the Campagnolo 1st generation Record drive train and shifting, Universal brakes, 3ttt cockpit, Brooks saddle and Fiamme tubular rims.
