Description

This Bottecchia road bicycle stems from the 1950s and it's one of the older pieces we had in our collection so far.
Bottecchia is a very traditional company which started as the small cyclery of Carnielli and was improved in 1924 by Ottavio Bottecchia, the first Italian Tour de France winner (1924, 1925). A new company with a new name “Bottecchia” was born after the mysterious and tragic death of Ottavio Bottecchia in 1926.
The bicycles they produced were high end pieces which carried many champions to victory.
Our bike is a very nice piece indeed with beautiful chromed lugs and when it arrived in our workshop, we were facing a decision whether the frame will be completely stripped and refurbished or to keep it authentic and leave all the scratches, wear and tear and keep its soul. As you can see, the second option won and the bike still tells the stories of the countless kilometers on the road.
As for the parts, they are mostly original too. From the Simplex Tour de France shifting, Bowden brakes, Magistroni bottom bracket or Nisi rims to Bottecchia branded cranks and headset. A sweet bicycle with a lot of charisma.

Condition

Used. The bicycle is in good technical condition. The frame is sound and stable without any bents or cracks. The paintjob and the rest of the decals are ariginal with strong patina, larger abrasions and scratches. All parts have been disassembled, cleaned and then reassembled again. Some wearing parts were replaced for new ones.

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.

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!

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.

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.
