Diego Marabelli was a relatively successful cyclist born in 1914 in Pavia, a town and comune of southwestern Lombardy, Northern Italy. Growing up as an avid cyclist in the Italian hotbed for cycling it wasn't long until Marabelli was scouted into the professional circuit in 1935. In 1936, his second year as a professional, he came second to the great Gino Bartelli in the Giro di Lombardia
Up his retirement in 1946, Diego started to manufacture his bicycles under the name of Marabelli. Diego Marabelli did not by any stretch of the imagination manufacture lots of bicycles. He was more of a tailor, an artisan incredibly good at manufacturing custom to meet customers' measures and needs.
The example that we have here demonstrates his craftsmanship and dates back to the 1960s. One of the stand-out features are the chromed lugs which bring a touch of elegance to this top-class bicycle. As would be expected from of bicycle of such an echelon, it comes with a then top-of-the-line Campagnolo Groupset and Universal Brakes.

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
