Achille Pavarin is an Italian expert bicycle producer from Calcinate del Pesce (Varese, northern Italy). In 1974 he decided to open his own bike store and to produce custom steel frames.

As many other Pavarin frames, this one is a true masterpiece of craftsmanship and was built by a real expert. Most Pavarin bikes were built either by Marnati or Losa.

Giovanni - "Vanni" - Losa. The frame builder from Vittuone - a small city close to Milan - is a real legend. He manufactured exquisite bicycles for third brands, among others, the Cinelli Supercorsa from the 1990s to 2008.

Like most other frame built by Losa, our Pavarin road bike from the 1980s illustrates refined details. Unlike most other frame built by Losa, our Pavarin doesn't show the typical triangular or "V"cut-outs in the lugs. Instead, there are smaller engravings which Losa apparently used for some frames with shorter lugs in the late 80s.
As for the tubes, this frame is made of light and sturdy Columbus SL tubes, a popular choice of many frame builders.

Our pavarin is equipped with a rather interesting Shimano Santé groupset. Introduced in 1987, this short lived and quite rare gruppo sat right below Dura-Ace as the second most expensive one. It is characteristic with specific finish and high quality. It is furthermore equipped with pantographed 3ttt cockpit, Ambroiso clincher rims and new Turbo saddle.
