Olympia Classic Road Bicycle 1977
The Italian brand Olympia was founded in 1893 by Carlo Borghi. In 1959 the brand was subsequently acquired by Antonio and Pasquale Fontana who at that time already owned the brand Sanremo, among the others. The company is nowadays located in Piove di Sacco (Padova) and since 2013 has also owned the Scapin brand.
The particular Olympia is built with a light and sturdy Columbus SL tubing and illustrates extremely refined details such as the engraved head tube and lugs, typical indicators of a handcrafted steel frame of the best Italian tradition. The head tube is also chromed, detail quite typical for top class Olympia bicycles from the 70s and early 80s.
Regarding the components, this Olympia is equipped with a Campagnolo Nuovo Record Gruppo with many Olympia pantographed and preciselly milled parts. It is finished with NIsi rims, Premier saddle and a set of brand new high quality tyres. And as a cherry on top there is the original Olympia frame pump!
|The bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original with some small signs of usage. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! Parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The rear wheel has one little bump. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in great riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.|
