Wilier Triestina „La Triestina“ Ramata 1978

 

Wilier Triestina is an Italian manufacturer of racing bicycles, founded in 1906 by Pietro Dal Molin in Bassano del Grappa, Italy. The company name originated as an acronym for the phrase “W l’Italia liberata e redenta”, where the W is an abbreviation for "Viva!" (Long live Italy, liberated and redeemed) World Champion Alessandro Ballan and runner up Damiano Cunego rode Wilier bicycles to victory in the 2008 UCI Road World Championships. This particular Wilier Triestina “tipo La Triestina” is without a doubto one of the rarest vintage bicycles ever. Ramata finish means, that the bike is so-called cromovelato, this one plated with copper. It is extremely attractive roadie – perfect eyecatcher.

Extra decal on seat tube says: "MODELLO SPECIALE 1978, AZIENDA PREMIATA CON MEDAGLIA D'ORO". Most of these La Triestina´s are made of columbus steel. Small sticker on the down tube says, that this is some very special set of tubes made for Wilier. Equipped with valuable Galli Criterium derailleurs groupset, sugino maxy drilled crankset, perfect wheelset ( Nisi rims with Wilier ultra rare hubs) and top of the line Universal brakes Mod. 68 with original pads! Beautiful details are present on the frame as well, such as headset lugs, fork crown and top eyes. The bicycle is truly genuine and extremely well kept!
