Description

The Legnano Roma is certainly a vintage bicycle which should not be missing in a serious collection. It was a model line of which the first exemplars were already manufactured in the 1930s. The Legnano Roma has become an icon of cycling history through the years.

The fact that both Coppi and Bartali rode Legnano bicycles and their unmistakable color certainly added to their history. It is a given, a Legnano is kind of a must-have for any vintage cycling enthusiast.

According to the serial number DF7641, this Legnano Tipo Roma stems approximately from 1952. It arrived at Steel Vintage Bikes in original condition with some patina. Thus it underwent just a light refurbishment and fine tuning of the parts. The frame is a typical Legnano lugged steel frame made of Falck tubes with the very iconic saddle clamp under the seat lug, the main feature of all high-end bicycles from this Italian brand. And of course it still shows the original Legnano green paintwork!
This model basically was the top of the line bike Legnano offered in the 1950s. So to no surprise we find Campagnolo Gran Sport shifting on it.

Other highlights to be mentioned are certainly the Legnano crank and Hubs, the Universal brakes, Ambrosio Champion cockpit or the Nisi rims.

Whether you are looking for a bicycle to enrich your collection or simply want to ride a piece from a glorious brand, this Legnano Roma is the right choice! Highly valuable and collectible!

Condition Used
The bike is in good working condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork and decals are original, with patina. The paint (mainly on the top tube) is fading. All parts have been thoroughly checked and are working well.
