After leaving the Legnano Team, in 1948 Gino Bartali founded his own team: Cicli Bartali. The bicycles for the racing team and for the commercial use were produced until 1955 by the brothers Santamaria in Novi Ligure - good friends of Fausto Coppi - then by Margherita brothers, and starting from 1960 by Galmozzi (San Pellegrino Team).
This Gino Bartali is a true gem of the mid 1950s. According to the head badge, Campagnolo Gran Sport parts and the lugs the bicycle was manufactured by the brothers Santamaria in Novi Ligure.
It is equipped with a Campagnolo Gran Sport group set - in its third version - Gnutti crankset, Universal Extra brakes, Ambrosio stem and bars and a Brooks Professional leather saddle.
Whats more, some of the components, namely hubs, headset and the seat post clamp are branded with the very name of the true icon of cycling sports - Bartali.
An authentic rarity, the perfect opportunity for all true Gino Bartali admirers.
