Messina Pista 1980s Classic Track Bike
Guido Messina, born in Monreale, Sicilia, was an Italian road and track champion cyclist of the 1950s-1960s, who rode with the Frejus and Molteni teams.
He won a golden medal in the olympic track pursuit and 5 world championships in the individual pursuit on the road, two of which as an amateur and four in a consecutive row!
After retiring from the competitions, he started to provide high-quality road and track bicycles, the frame of which were built by expert artisans as Giovanni Pelà from Turin, amongst others.
This frame is made of Columbus steel tubes and is a decent tight track masterpiece. The classy geometry and design make the speed this bike can go almost feelable at first sight. and guess what it is pretty light, too! Despite some not exactly lightweight parts, it weighs in at just 7.85kg.
The master track frame is of course equipped with nothing less than the adequate Campagnolo Record Pista groupset.
A great piece for anyone who is in love with the simplicity of historic track bikes!»See Details
