Description: Gino Bartali certainly is one of the most popular figures in cycling history. Not only because he was delivering spectacular duells with his long-time rival Fausto Coppi, but also due to his character and human greatness.
After leaving the Legnano Team in 1948, he founded his own team: Cicli Bartali.
The bicycles for the racing team and for commercial trade were produced by the brothers Santamaria - good friends of Fausto Coppi - in Novi Ligure until 1955.
After that production was taken over by the Margherita brothers, and starting from 1956 the professional versions were made by Galmozzi (San Pellegrino Team).
This Gino Bartali is a true racer of the 1960s. At that time it should have been made the brothers Margherita.
The frame has been kept with its original paint and is equipped with parts of the same era.
That includes of course a Campagnolo Shifting.
