Description

Felice Gimondi was a professional bicycle racer during the 1960’s and 70’s. He

raced for Bianchi mounted teams during most of his career, and continued a

lifelong close association with Bianchi. He worked for Bianchi sponsored racing

teams in various roles and in later life worked as an ambassador for the Bianchi

brand. During his career Gimondi won all of the 3 Grand Tours and the World

Championship road race, amongst many other wins.

In 2012 Bianchi decided to produce a limited edition bicycle to celebrate

Gimondi’s 70th Birthday. 70 special bicycles were produced, all numbered, with

number 1/70 presented to Gimondi on his birthday in September that year.

The bikes were top of the line Bianchi Oltre XR’s with a very special paint

scheme that also included a listing of all Gimondi’s professional wins printed on

the down tube. The special saddle and seat post were also unique to the model.

The group set for all the bikes was the recently introduced top line Campagnolo

Super Record EPS electronic. The bike included an FSA Bianchi themed bar

and stem, Campagnolo Bora carbon wheel set, and look carbon blade pedals.

All bikes came with a commemorative box containing a certificate of

authenticity, a hard cover book celebrating the life of Felice Gimondi, and a

jersey with numbering matching the specific frame number.

This particular bike is number 11/70 and is a size 53cm. It was used by its

original owner for approximately 12 months. Once purchased by us in mid 2014

the frame set showed definite signs of its road usage. The original wheel set had

disappeared, this was replaced with a contemporary set.

The frame was then brought back to as new condition by the renowned Paint

my Bike organisation in Brisbane. The frame was finished with a final covering

clear ceramic protective coating to guarantee the preservation of the unique

paint scheme. The frame then remained unassembled and stored until very

recently. The EPS group set was used on another bicycle until being stored, and

then recently reassembled onto the Gimondi 70 frame.

The commemorative box, and the numbered jersey are included.
