Cicli Carnielli was a large company founded back in 1908 by Teodoro Carnielli in a small town of Vittorio Veneto in northern Italy. This energetic man stood behind the success and enormous longevity of the company. In the earlier years, Carlielli produced engine powered vehicles like mopeds, light motorcycles or three-wheelser, but in the 1960s the iconic folding bicycle Graziella was born. It was an instant hit which opened the door also to the cycling market. Carnielli company also owned Bottecchia brand until the mid-1990s. Among other brands under Carnielli wings was Aurora, focused on the higher-end road bikes.
Our Aurora classic road bike stems from the early 1980s and it's a fine bicycle indeed. The frame made of steel tubes connected with nice lugs is fitted with forged dropouts, shows nice pantographes and the shiny chromed front fork and rear stays are a clear indication, that this was one of the high-end models.
Regarding the components, it is fitted with a blend of Italian parts from Campagnolo, Modolo, Ofmega or Gipiemme.
A very elegant bicycle which is just perfect for a vintage cycling event or for a nice weekend ride.
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original with some scratches and paint chips.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
