Up for sale is a rare and extremely refined example of Italian frame-building craftsmanship - the Boschetti Rino Multi Shape.
The Boschetti Multishape road frame is made of Columbus MS (multi-shape) tubing, which was developed in collaboration with Gilco design.
Columbus released the MultiShape tubeset in the late 1980s after each tube on the bike had been designed to a different shape in order to withstand specific stresses. It was made from Columbus' Cyclex steel alloy, thus comes from the same family as Columbus SL, SLX, TSX. It is surprising to see how each frame tube has a unique shape supposed to enhance it´s stiffness without increasing weight.
The top tube is sort of oval with ridges down each side, the down tube is teardrop shaped with pointed edge at bottom, the non drive chainstay is triangular while the drive side is ovalised. Check out the Columbus MS BB shell, there are two sockets to match the triangle and oval chainstays!
The frame and fork have lots of lovely details and pantographs. Just take a look at that chromed lugs and the stunning paintwork! Very nice rear Columbus Dropouts and fork. All stays are chromed.
This piece of art was built by the famous Italian frame builder “Rino Boschetti” from Marano sul Panaro close to Modena in the Emilia Romagna. In the early 1990´s it was about as good a steel frame as you could get. This classic bicycle is fully equipped with the reliable Shimano Dura Ace groupset which functions precise like a clockwork.
This is just the right bike for collectors as well as cycling enthusiast. For someone who loves to ride steel frames and would like to posses a piece of art and cycling history at the same time.
ConditionUsed. The bike is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork and decals are original. Few small scratches or chips. Chrome is excellent. All parts have been checked and are working fine.

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..
