Description: Bottecchia is a very traditional company which started as the small cyclery of Carnielli and was improved in 1924 by Ottavio Bottecchia, the first Italian Tour de France winner (1924, 1925). A new company with a new name “Bottecchia” was born after the mysterious and tragic death of Ottavio Bottecchia in 1926.
The bicycles they produced were high end pieces which carried numerous champions to victory.
Many might still remember how Greg Lemond won his 1989 Tour de France on a Bottecchia Equipe.
The bike we present here is pretty much one of the classic builds from the early 1980s. It is built from light and strong Columbus tubing. As for the parts it is equipped with a complete Campagnolo Super Record groupset.
This bike really is a beautiful exemplar of high tech steel framing with a classic design.
A wonderful ride for long weekend trips and, of course, perfectly fit for a L'Eroica ride.
Used. The bike is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork and decals are original. Small paintchips, fully underchromed. All parts are working fine.
