The German brand Rabeneick had a short yet very successful time in cycling history.
August Rabeneick founded his Company in the 1930s and started with the production of motorbikes. Later he also included the production of bicycles and supported a factory team on his own.
In 1965 when Fichtel&Sachs bought the Rabeneick company, they eventually shut down the cycling branch.
In the company's short life, more than 75(!) German championships in various disciplines have been won on Rabeneick bikes and the model we present here was responsible for a lions share of them.
Tullio Campagnolo and August Rabeneick had their first encounter at some cycling event in the early 1950s. Both were about the same age and shared the same idea of quality bicycles and parts.
Turned out, they even became sort of friends. And Rabeneick got the rights to use the name Campagnolo for his professional top-model which got a nice Campagnolo setup
The outcome was the Rabeneick Modell 120 Campagnolo. A bike, built to win on the still tough roads of the 1950s.
Almost everything Campagnolo produced back then could be found on this
bike: Dropouts, shifting, clamps, hubs. And for the rest nothing else than the best was good enough. The frame was made from Libellula (dragonfly) butted tubes, the bearings and the double chainset were Stronglight, seat Brooks, brakes Universal, adjustable Stem Ambrosio.
You can check on every part and it is the who-is-who of European top notch cycling componentry.
Our bike here is in nice and mostly original condition.
Thoroughly checked and tuned it is ready to go and could be used at Eroica-events or weekend rides alike.
Used. The bike is in good overall condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork and decals are original. All parts have been thoroughly checked and are working fine.
