Description

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 including the team of Sanson with Gianni Motta as Captain.
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. A fun fact is, that the later famous bike builder Mario Confente learnt how to build frames from Grandis where he helped out in the workshop to finance his racing career until he had to stop in 1968.
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.
This Grandis Grand Prix was their top model until the introduction of the Superleggera in the 1970s

Our exemplar dates back to 1968 and still has the original parts, including the then new Nuovo Record rear derailleur!

The bike has the finest equipment available at that time.

The frame sure is very classy and rare! A piece of work which belongs to the finest Italian bicycle manufacturing tradition! Just have a look at the nicely brazed lugs and the amazeballs cutouts! The condition is exceptional and makes this bike both collectable and a surprisingly enjoyable ride.
