|The family Fanini from Lucca has been a sponsor and promoter of regional cycling sport for generations.
Their most famous protégé arguably being Mario Cipollini.
When Lorenzo Fanini was active in the bicycle business they did not only sell bikes of other brands, they also built their own ones.
Our Fanini Super Competizione Record from 1972 shows both the skills and the craziness of their machines.
Fanini bikes of this time often had excessive drillium works and extra milling. They just always were a little different and had that special extra effort put into them that turns a simple bike into a marvelous piece of craftsmenship.
Our frame has it all: A fiery translucent cromovelato paintjob, finely filed lugs and even holes drilled into the seatlug. The lower headlug has a ginormous long spear-like tip pointing from the headtube towards the bottom bracket as if it was a modern reinforcement.
The shifter bosses are handmade and the brakes are screwed directly into the frame from the front, there is nut in the back to fasten them!
The Campagnolo Nuovo Record parts had the thrill to see the drill. The seatpost and stem have even been milled in the most impressive way, which made a wooden strengthening in the seatpost necessary.
If such lightening seems to be a bit fragile for you, a miniature Madonna badge on the front of the stem might boost your feeling of security.
We think that we can say it is very difficult to find a similar bike and close to impossible to get this setup a second time.
An utterly beautiful, unique road bike, an enrichment to any collection.
