The Chesini brand is celebrated not only for their engaging designs and attention to detail, but also the performance of their bicycles. Since the skillful Gelmino Chesini first began producing bicycles in 1925 in the workshop of Nesente, a small village near Verona, the brand's drive has been "build special race bikes, perfect for racers and amateurs". A goal fulfilled, in the following decades as Chesini bikes found an important and respected place in manufacturing quality bicycles.
Here we have a very special Chesini Innovation, a Team LA William Duvel Racing Bike from 1992! The Innovation frameset when it was released in 1992 was a bold step in frame design, made of high-end Columbus EL tubes, these are slightly oversized and very thin drawn tubes. Due to their lightness Columbus named them Extra Leggera, the 'extra light'.The top tube sits at a slight angle foreshadowing the engineering shift that was soon to sweep across the cycling world. Painted with the original Team 92 paintjob, the bright Duvel red.
Our bike has nearly all original parts, including a complete Campagnolo Chorus groupset, 3TTT cockpit and original Selle San Marco Regal Girardi saddle. The wheels have been built up from NOS Isidis Tubular Rims from Fabbrica Italiana Ruote or FIR, almost a perfect fit with the 1992 setup. In Chesini style there are of course the additional aesthetic treats, including the Pantographed stem and precise details on the frame and fork.
