Description

Francesco Galmozzi can certainly be 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.

Reflecting 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!
Francesco Galmozzi did not produce too many bicycles. He was actually more of a tailor, an artisan, incredibly good at manufacturing special high-end bikes 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! - And a bike very similar to the one we are presenting here.

This Galmozzi dates back to ca. 1960 and arrived at Steel Vintage Bikes in original condition. Therefore, our mechanics decided to go for a light refurbishment in order to preserve the authenticity and patina of this unique machine. Cherry on the top is certainly the original and rareCampagnolo Headset from 1958 and the early Campagnolo Record crankset from 1958 in perfect working condition.

A bicycle for true connoisseurs. Elegant and rare, the perfect bicycle to take part in Eroica events or to enrich any serious collection.
