Olmo Competition SR Classic Road Bike 1980s
- Manufacturer: Olmo
- Size: 56 cm
In 1939, four years after setting the World Hour Record, Giuseppe Olmo, nicknamed "Gepin", retired from a successful cycling career. Straight afterwards he set up a bicycle manufacture in Celle Ligure together with his brothers Franco, Giovanni and Michele. The traditional company is still in production today. During the years many excellent bikes have left Celle Ligure to win races all over the world.
The Olmo Competition formed the core of the road bike series. Built with light Columbus SL tubes in different versions during the late 1970 and early 1980s, the Olmo competition SR - SR stands for "Super Record" – was the top model of the Competition line.
This Olmo competition SR has a very typical deep red paintjob, which many high class Olmo bikes received.
The bike has been fully checked in our workshop and is ready to be ridden. Cables, tires, chain, bar tape and saddle have been replaced in order to make this Olmo the perfect bike to tackle even the most impervious roads.
Approved for Eroica events worldwide. An elegant vintage bike for true gentlemen.»See Details
