The history of the Monark brand (which still exists) reaches back to as early as 1908, when it was founded in Sweden. For a quite a while, it was very closely bound with another major Swedish brand - Crescent. In the 1960s and early 1970s, these two companies existed alongside each other and the model differed mainly by components used and the paint job. Monark usually had the typical light blue color paint, just like ours has. The brand was also successful in the racing field, when the brothers Gösta and Thomas Pettersson rode the blue Monarks to victory in 1967, 1968 and 1969 world championships team time trial. The brand became widely popular not only for their bicycles but also for their motorbikes.

If you take a look at our Monark Classic Road Bike from the early 1970s, you can immediately tell that they did care about quality. The steel tubes, made probably of Monark's 'Airplane steel', are connected with beautiful Nervex professional lugs. As for the components, Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset found its way onto this bike along with the 3ttt cockpit or Ideale leather saddle.

The bike is serviced and ready to be ridden. If you are looking for a fine bicycle for L'Eroica you will certainly make a good choice with this one.
