Our Bertorelle Special from the 1980s is an extravagant extra fine road bike. The frame is made of light Columbus tubes, which are ovalized in the case of the top and the down tube and also the seat stays. You will fine many delicate details like precise engravings or Cinelli brake bridge showing that this bike has been done by a master frame builder.
The treatment of those tubes is however what makes it so lavish. You may be familiar with cromovelato paintjobs, where a translucent paintjob is applied over a polished layer of chrome. Our Bertorelle shows similar solution, but instead of chrome the frame has been fully gold plated. This "orovelato" creates a breathtaking combination of a sparkling green tone with the characteristic colour of gold.
On the technical side the bike is equipped with a Campagnolo Super Record groupset, the best racing level parts you could get in the early 1980s.
A fascinating bike with and appearance and name like no other.
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 small signs of usage. The cromovelato paintjob has some small scratches and small flake-offs and the gold plating is slightly flaking-off on some places. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! Parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in great riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.

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
