The cradle of the Meazzo brand stands in Alessandria, a town in the Piedmont region in Northern Italy.>
Here, in the basement of his house at the Piazza Tanaro, Vitalio Meazzo started to set off a business by installing a workshop. That was in 1928.
He became a master artisan in the manufacture, repair and tuning of race, sports and travel bikes. During the second world war, he modified frames and cottered cranks, but failed to have his inventions patented. He also invented two machines for the vulcanizing of tires, born out of the lack of proper new tires due to shortages during the war years.
After the war, the production grew and moved into proper large facilities. It was then, that Giuseppe Meazzo enherited the business from his father. Giuseppe had been a promising amateur cyclist before and had won some important national titles.
Coming from the region of Coppi and Girardengo, he had racing and cycling in his blood and on his mind. Unfortunately he had to retreat from the sport for health reasons. But his love for for fast bikes manifested itself in the beautiful machines which left his manufacture.
One of those rides is our Meazzo Record Classic Road Bike from the 1970s.
The frame consists of one of the best tubings Columbus had to offer back then - the legendary Columbus SL.
The groupset, of course, is one of the best, too. A Campagnolo Record turns this frame into a proper racer.
When you have heard about attention to detail, you might from now on refer it to the elegant long seat stay caps of this bike, or the marvelous fork painting, or the cromovelato head tube, nesteled in lightened and chromed lugs.
Meazzo certainly offered his customers a unique style.
We thoroughly checked this bike and its components. It is now ready for many rides, including a bit of adventurous Eroica show-off time! »See Details
