Francesco Moser, also known as the 'Sheriff' was not only a world champion, but whilst still competing competitively also began producing world class bicycles with his brother Aldo. Bringing the practical knowledge of the road to the construction of the frame itself.
From the late 1970s, with the help and support of master frame builder Ugo De Rosa, the small Moser workshop in Trento, northern Italy was transformed into a premiere destination for road bike production. This 1980s Corsa has the 51.151 marked fork and decals, paying homage to Moser's 1984 hour world record and the meters covered. It is equipped with Campagnolo Athena parts, as well as some beautiful Simplex down tube shifters. Combined with Campagnolo Omega Rims and vintage Vittoria Rubino tires, the bicycle has a strong, classic look.
Oria Steel tubing was used and the paint and decals are all original showing light signs of use. The bike has been check and tuned by our mechanics and is running perfectly, ready for the next ride, be it an Eroica event or a road adventure.
