Ugo De Rosa, one of the most successful frame builders was born on January 27, 1934, in Milan, Italy. His passion led him to study mechanics and engineering at a technical college. Later in the early 1950s he opened his first shop and commenced the manufacture of racing bicycles. He supplied many champions with his high-end bicycles (Gianni Motta, Eddy Merckx and Francesco Moser…), and also strongly influenced the cycling industry with his amazing bikes from Cusano Milanino.
Here we proudly present one of the most iconic bikes made by UgoDe Rosa, the De Rosa Professional. The frame is a work of art, made of Columbus SL, crafted with perfect attention to detail, that provides the best performance you might expect from an early 80s racing machine. This work of art features the famous ”Diamante chainstay” and De Rosa engraved seat stays. It is equipped with a complete Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset and a Cinelli cockpit.
What's more, this frame is coated in an amazing Team Sammontana paint job, Sammontana is an Italian ice cream company founded in 1948, and they started sponsoring Italian cycling teams in 1973. In 1982, the Sammontana team was led by Moreno Argentin and of course, DeRosa was their bike supplier.
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintjob has been professionally refurbished and restored to its former glory. There is storgeware on the downtube. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! All parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in fantastic 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
