Champagne Gold ‘Raphael Geminiani’ Vintage 70s Italian Road Racing Bike

Made in Italy, this bike has a solid frame built up with high quality and somewhat rare Italian parts; Ofmega crankset; ITM bars and stem; Gian Robert (Campagnolo Nuovo Record copy) gearset; Record rims).

Raphael Geminiani was a French champion cyclist in the ‘50s. He is one of only two men to have finished on the podium of all three grand tours (Giro d’Italia, Vuelta a Espana and Tour de France) in the same year, a teammate of Fausto Coppi, and later directeur sportif to Jaques Anquetil and Tom Simpson. Geminiani Bicycles were originally made by Gitane in France before production was moved to Italy.

The frame is in good condition for its age. Although there are several scratches and a few superficial rust spots (which have been treated) overall it has a very nice vintage patina. There are no dings.

The bike has been fully restored, cleaned and serviced: bearings repacked; wheels tuned; new freewheel and chain; saddle recovered with full grain leather; new inner/outer brake and gear cables; new tyres; new bar tape.

All parts are original with the exception of the gear levers (original Simplex levers were broken, replaced with Huret) and the Freewheel (and chain), which I have replaced with a modern Hyperglide type 14-28 to give better shifting and a wider gear range.

Delivery: Mainland France: £30.00; England £50.00. For any other destination please contact me for a quote before the end of the auction. Delivery time approximately 2 weeks at this price. Faster options may be available – please ask if you are interested.
