In 1973, a local bicycle “fanatic” Oliviero Gallegati from the Lugo (Romagna, Italy), began to manufacture exquisite custom road bicycles and founded SOMEC (SOcieta MECchanica) which became famous for unique finished products and using the most highly evolved technological and precise construction methods.
Somec is featuring two logos, ”The tulip”, because it is elegant, durable and comes in a vast array of colours and ”The stallion” which famous war warrior Francesco Baracca from Lugo had emblazoned on his aeroplane. This same horse was given by Baracca’s family to Ferrari, a prestigious car manufacturer.
Very happy to present a masterpiece, build by expert artisans – Somec Promax. The frame is made of extraordinary Columbus MAX tubing, where oversize top tube and downtube have an elliptical ending, shines in amazing paintjob, built with superb Campagnolo Chorus groupset.
This special beauty was made to represent Somec’s excellence at a bike show in Milan in early 1990s and this same model was also published in their catalogue on the cover photo. If you are looking for something extraordinary and unique, then that’s it.
ConditionUsed. The frameset is in almost perfect condition. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! Parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in great riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.

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
