May there be more better known bikes - it still is fair enough to say that Wilier Triestina are some of the most beautiful racing bicycles ever manufactured.
Known as "Ramata" amongst enthusiasts - Ramata, feminine for Ramato which in Italian means copper plated - the Wilier Triestina has always appealed to collectors around the globe like few other bicycles.
The paintwork is certainly the highlight of any Wilier Triestina Ramata: a translucent paint coat over polished chromed tubes - Columbus SL in this case.
This particular model dates back to the late 1970s and it's frame has been completely refurbished. Even the chroming has been redone and the frame is therefore shining as it used to when it left the Wilier workshop over 40 years ago.
Regarding the components, this Wilier Triestina is equipped with Campagnolo Nuovo Record parts. Apart from it, we should mention the splendid wheelset with almost NOS Mavic rims or the 3ttt Olympic stem with hinged clamping.
Cycling heritage at its finest. Approved to take part in Eroica events worldwide.
