May there be more famous bikes - it still is fair enough to say that the Wilier Triestina Superleggera is one of the most beautiful racing bicycles ever manufactured.
Known as "Ramata" amongst enthusiasts - Ramata being feminine for Ramato which in Italian means copper plated - the Wilier Triestina bikes left the factory in Rossano Veneto and have appealed to collectors around the globe like few other bicycles.
The paintwork is certainly the highlight of the Wilier Triestina Superleggera: it consists of a translucent paint coat over polished chromed tubes - Columbus SL in this case.
This model dates back to the 1980s and is in nice original condition.
Regarding the components, this Wilier Triestina is equipped with a Campagnolo Super Record groupset including pantographed and milled parts: an amaretto cherry on the top!
A setup which is convincing even in the small details.
Generally all parts are checked through and in good condition.
Cycling heritage at its finest. Approved to take part in Eroica events worldwide.
