Francesco Moser, also known as the 'Sheriff' was not only a world champion, but whilst still competing competitively also began producing world class bicycles with his brother Aldo. Bringing the practical knowledge of the road to the construction of the frame itself.
From the late 1970s, with the help and support of master frame builder Ugo De Rosa, the small Moser workshop in Trento, northern Italy was transformed into a premiere destination for road bike production. This 1980s Corsa has the 51.151 marked fork and decals, paying homage to Moser's 1984 hour world record and the meters covered.
The frame has been refurbished by the previous owner in the typical dark blue paint. As for the material, it is presumably made of Oria steel.
