Description

Do you remember the epic 1952 Tour de France picture of Coppi and Bartali passing a water bottle? If you look closer you also see a man popping out from a convertible team car behind them. That is exactly Umberto Marnati, mechanic of Fausto Coppi in the 1950s, later frame builder at Legnano and Bianchi Reparto Corse.

Having learnt lacing wheels and welding very young, Umberto Marnati decided to start manufacturing bicycles under his nem. And as it happend, he opened his own atelier in Milan - led by his son Daniele from the 1970s onward - a city with a tradition of excellent frame builders. And Mr. Marnati was no exception. Via Delfico no. 26 soon became a meeting point of enthusiasts who were keen to ride artisan racing frames which were largely renowned for unique attention to details.

This Marnati Corsa perfectly shows how accurate and meticulous Marnati frames are. Made of Columbus SL tubing, this bicycle is a true heap of refined details like the fine cutouts representing Marnati logo. This exceptional bike is in original condition, which means that it sports not just the original almost 50 years old paintjob with patina, but also with original parts. 

Mainly it's the Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset from 1974, Cinelli set including Unicanitor saddle, milled stem and Giro d'Italia bars or, Nisi rims.

And there is an icing on a cake. Born in the mid 70s, this authentic bike of highest quality met his creator decades later and so it now sports an autograph of Umberto marnati, one of the great Italian framebuilders of all time.

If you are looking for a truly hand-crafted vintage racing bike, do not miss the chance to make this Marnati Corsa yours!
