Galmozzi Record Classic Road Bicycle 1960s
Francesco Galmozzi can be certainly enumerated among the best frame builders of the prestigious Milanese tradition. Thanks to an investment of Artemira Gerbi - daughter of the famous cyclist Giovanni Gerbi, aka "Il Diavolo Rosso" - Galmozzi was able to found the brand Gloria 1922. It was the period in which he manufactured the "Garibaldina model". A few years later, he joined the company Cicli Magri, which he eventually acquired in 1938 and by this founded his own brand: Ciclo Galmozzi.
According to his name, Mr. Galmozzi developed his logo: a rooster on a hub. Funny enough if you know that "Gallo" in Italian means rooster and "Mozzi" means hubs!
Mr. Francesco Galmozzi did not produce many bicycles. He was actually more of a tailor, an artisan incredibly good at manufacturing custom to meet customers' measures and needs. His son Angelo joined the family business in 1959 and their atelier in Via Melchiorre Gioia in Milan soon became a hotbed for some of the finest Milanese racing bicycles.
Memorable was the Galmozzi Specialissima from 1961, a bicycle which led Rik van Looy - Faema Team - to his second World Championship!
This Galmozzi dates back to late 1960s and it sports the refurbished orange paintjob. The head tube lugs are chromed furter elevating this already very elegant bicycle. As for the parts, it is equipped with Campagnolo Record parts, Universal Super 68 brakes, Nisi rims, Cinelli cockpit and Unicanitor leather saddle.
