Grandis is one of those traditional Italian brands which are still producing innovative road bikes in Italy to this day. The founder, Silvino Grandis, was involved in lightweight racing bikes since 1930. With the years his expertise grew and he was a technician who was often asked for advice. As mechanic he supported many teams.
By 1965 he started to produce and sell high end bicycles under his name, always supported by his wife Ines. His brand was known for its technical brilliance right from the start and his bikes found him some real fame among cycling enthusiasts. Since Silvino had to be present at many races and business was ever growing, his sons Mario and Ezio stepped in. Together they managed to build up advanced facilities in Verona, including laboratories to test and develop new methods of frame building. Their innovative thinking combined with classical expertise made them one of the most interesting bicycle manufacturers in Italy.
Grandis Superleggera was their 1970s top model. Our exemplar dates back to approximately 1973 and is made of light and strong Columbus SL tubes. It is equipped with Campagnolo Nuovo Record parts - the best groupset that was available at that time! Additionally it has been fitted with Univeral Super 68 brakes, nice Cinelli cockpit and saddle or the Nisis Toro rims.
It still sports the original vibrant pantjob, which only adds to its undeniable charisma.
Very classic and rare! A bicycle which belongs to the finest Italian bicycle manufacturing tradition!
ConditionUsed. The bike is in good condition. The paintjob and decals are original with some oxidation spots and signs of normal usage like small scratches. The frame has no cracks, no dents and it is not bent. All parts have been checked and they 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.. 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
