Among the small number great champions who set up a bicycle production whilst still riding races is Francesco Moser, the 'Sherriff'.
In his professional years, Moser, one of the most winning riders ever, equipped his team with bikes that were labelled with his own name. Almost all of those team bikes were built by Ugo de Rosa.
Later, around 1977 De Rosa helped to transform the small workshop of Francesco Moser’s brother Aldo Moser into a high end frame manufacture. In the late 1970s the Family Moser started manufacturing professional Road bikes in Trento, northern Italy. When Francesco broke the world hour record in 1984, the cycling line was named 51.151 after the number of meters that were covered in this attempt.
Our F.Moser Classic Road Bike in its lovely 1980s style is proof that even bikes for ambitious amateurs were made with attention to detail. Instead of using cheap lugs or no name tubes, the Moser frame builders used the same nice cutout lugs as on top models and Columbus tubing.
To keep the bike affordable they decided for the Campagnolo Nuovo Gran Sport shifting and other high class components. That way, it was possible to produce a model at half the price of the professional ones without losing much on the performance side.
Our Moser is a nice 1980s bird and suitable for all kinds of activities, including L'Eroica festivals or similar events. »See Details
