The history of the Guerciotti brand started in 1964 when the brothers Italo and Paolo Guerciotti – at the time respected road and cyclocross riders – opened a small workshop in the outskirts of Milan.
As stated in one of their 80s catalogues, "Guerciotti builds bicycles that unify function and workmanship as never before. To the last detail, every Guerciotti caresses the eye and challenges the spirit, using the most advanced frame geometry and equipment technology available".
This particular Guerciotti is no exception. The Columbus SP lugged frameset illustrates very precisely filled lugs with elegant cutouts and engravings which are clear indicators that this Guerciotti was a high-end model of its time. With its paint refurbished by the previous owner, the frame is ready to build into a complete bike again.
