Classic Fiorelli bikes have many friends in the collectors scene.
Founded in 1932 by three brothers. The company sponsored several teams and riders and was very succsessful. Many famous champions rode Fiorelli bikes. Among them Schotte, Kubler, Koblet, Gaul, Motta and Ole Ritter who broke the world hour record on a Fiorelli frame in 1968.
In the late 1950s, Fausto Coppi wanted to start producing his own classic Italian racing bicycles. He made a deal with Fiorelli in Novi Ligure for the manufacture of bicycles under his name. These vintage bicycles were very similar to Fiorelli's own designs, apart from the finish and branding. When the Campionissimo passed away in a malaria fever in 1960, this contract was still valid and the production of Fausto Coppi branded bicycles continued.
Our Fausto Coppi Campionissimo is a real gem. Stemming from the early 1980s, it is still in the original condition with a warm white paint and nice decals. The frame itself is made of light Columbus SL tubes, connected with lugs, some of which have been chromed. But also the frok and complete rear stays have this durable and shiny finish.
The parts are top notch too. It is equipped with the best parts of the time - Campagnolo Super Record with the rare last generation brake calipers. The beautiful Coppi pantographs on the chainring, stem and shifting levers are icing on the cake.
This bicycle is truly a lovely piece of Italian cycling history. Great frame, top level parts and the condition which is really hard to find these days.
