Grandis is one of those traditional Italian brands which are still producing innovative road bikes in Italy to this day. The founder, Silvino Grandis, was involved in lightweight racing bikes since 1930. With the years his expertise grew and he was a technician who was often asked for advice. As mechanic he supported many teams.By 1965 he started to produce and sell high end bicycles under his name, always supported by his wife Ines. His brand was known for its technical brilliance right from the start and his bikes found him some real fame among cycling enthusiasts. Since Silvino had to be present at many races and business was ever growing, his sons Mario and Ezio stepped in. Together they managed to build up advanced facilities in Verona, including laboratories to test and develop new methods of frame building. Their innovative thinking combined with classical expertise made them one of the most interesting bicycle manufacturers in Italy.
Grandis Superleggera was their 1970s top model. Our exemplar dates back to approximately 1973 and is made of light and strong Columbus SL tubes. It is equipped with Campagnolo Nuovo Record parts - the best groupset that was available at that time! Additionally it has been fitted with Univeral Super 68 brakes, nice Cinelli cockpit and saddle or the Nisis Toro rims.
It still sports the original vibrant pantjob, which only adds to its undeniable charisma.
Very classic and rare! A bicycle which belongs to the finest Italian bicycle manufacturing tradition!
