Paratella classic bicycle from 1977. La-creme-de-la-creme of Italian craftsmen from Turin, Corrado Paratella "tailored" extremely fine steel frames for forty years, from the the late 1940s until the late 1980s. Quality and not quantity. His atelier was a true hotbed of customised and elegant frames which Corrado Paratella meticulously manufactured in a very small amount per year, up to 20/25 as far as we were told by some enthusiasts from Turin.
According to the frame number engraved on the seat lug, this Paratella was manufactured in 1977 and was the 22nd frame of that year. The frame - made of Columbus SL - shows the typical austere elegance of Paratella's works, where decorations give way to clean lines and filled lugs. The bicycle is equipped with an appropriate era Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset.
If you are looking for something really rare and authentic, this Paratella won't disappoint you!
