  • Description:
    Shown in the opening scene, of the legendary cycling movie A Sunday In Hell, the Benotto bikes were some of the iconic bicycles of the 1970s and early 1980s.

    Benotto was founded by Giacinto Benotto in Torino, Italy, in 1931. Like so many Italian bike manufacturers of the era, Benotto himself was a passionate racer and had first hand experience of the competitive world of racing. He knew of the need for high-quality designs.

    Giacinto, together with his brother, researched extensively into the development of racing bikes for the future. However, early in 1948, the story of the brand took an unusual turn. Having read about the newly discovered oil in Venezuela, Benotto was keen to travel to South America in order to set up his classic bicycle brand and capitalise on this new found area of wealth.

    The Benotto brothers reached port La Guaira in the summer of 1948, along with 200 newly designed Benotto bikes. As they went through customs, Giacinto explained his concept of introducing bikes to Latin America. Despite his best efforts, they weren't convinced. They maintained, 'here in Venezuela we don’t ride bicycles, we drive Cadillacs'. Despite this initial opposition, Giacinto became a successful bicycle pioneer.

    The brother's brand would also sponsor a series of successful professional cycling teams. 11 World Championship titles have been won by riders of Benotto bicycles.

    And the top model of the brand was, for a long time the Benotto 3000.
    The frame was made from Columbus tubing and only the best Campagnolo components were installed.
    Our Benotto shares many details with classic Benotto 3000 bikes as well as with its successor, the Benotto 5000. But being one of the very last models which were built in Italy before production was moved to Mexico, it is just a tad more special.

    The bike we present here, comes with an internal cable routing but a classic semi-sloping fork crown. Fine details like the beautiful fork, the Benotto bar tape and a Campagnolo Super Record parts, leave no doubt concerning the thorough quality of this racing machine.
    The 'diamante' chain stays give away that this frame has been built nowhere less than the workshop of De Rosa

    A great racing bike for those who can appreciate really special machines.
