Another nice bike we recently acquired offered for sale today. It is a De Rosa from the mid 1980’s I believe. Dating these bikes is a bit difficult because frame features overlap and sometimes old fittings were used on newer bikes. Plus De Rosa was never really a high output operation until more modern times, focusing more on custom builds or bikes for racing teams / individuals. The frame is built with Columbus tubing. it also has the sloping fork crown which is an 80’s feature as well as the recessed, six slotted BB shell. The bike has all its original paint and decals, including the Trophee Super Prestige Arc En Ciel decal on the top tube with Eddy Merckx’s name and the dates of 1973-1975. The measurements are as follows:
- 53 CM CTC seat tube
- 54CM CTC top tube
- 30 1/2″ stand over height with air in the tires.
- Campagnolo SR seat post 27.2
