Rossin Special Professionale 1979
- Manufacturer: Rossin
- Size: 55 cm
Baronchelli, Roger De Vlaeminck, Franco Ballerini and Moreno Argentin are some of the riders who rode frames expertly and meticulously built by Marco Rossin, one of the best Italian frame builders in the 1970s and 1980s.
His career started at the Colnago factory which he left in 1974 to establish his own business together with Vittorio and Giuseppe Ghezzi, Inzaghi e Garbelli – patrons and managers of ICLAS and ITLA teams by that time.
Carefully manufactured and with a notable attention to details, 1970s and 1980s Rossin steel racing bikes are icons of the finest Italian bike manufacturing.
The Rossin we present here was so special that it did not even make it to the official catalogue. Handmade with extralight Columbus KL tubing, this bike consists of a lightweight frameset equipped with top-quality Campagnolo Record parts.
It is rolling on a great wheelset with Mavic rims, which are in fact NOS
The eyecatching fine pantographs on brake levers, chainring, stem and seatpost underline this Rossin's finesse. But what is not open to the eye is the surprising lightness of the machine. It weighs in at only 8.8kg!
Our Rossin has been fully checked in our workshop and is ready to ride.
Handmade in Italy. The right choice for vintage cycling enthusiasts! Suitable for all Eroica events worldwide.
- Condition: Used. The bike is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork has been refurbished. All parts have been thoroughly checked and are working fine.
- Era: 1980s
