Ciclo Galmozzi Milano classic frame from the 1960s! We are very happy to present you a Galmozzi road racer frame, a fine and very rare piece of craftsmanship from Milan, Italy.
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" - in 1922, Galmozzi founded the brand Gloria. 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 Galmozzi he developed his logo (Gallo in Italian means rooster and mozzi means hubs). Thus the logo turned out to be a rooster on a hub.
Mr. Francesco Galmozzi did not produce many bicycles. He was actually more of a tailor than a builder - an artisan, incredibly good at manufacturing frames to a cyclists' 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!
Our Galmozzi frame is truly a classic piece which shows all the typical details you want to see on a Galmozzi, like the unmistakeable head lugs.
This frame would be an excellent base to work on for a classic bike project.
