Ciocc Mod. San Cristobal

I recently inherited the above bike from in my family. It's a very light metallic blue with chrome forks and is quite old looking, few scratches here and there.

I know very little about the brand or bike but I'd like to get it all restored. Does anyone know if it's worth it it or not? I've looked online and prices vary massively and there's replica/new ones out now they're in the thousands..

Any info would be great.

Thanks

I did a bit of research on CIOCC's, San Cristobal's are generally expensive. Pics help.

That's a nice looking CIOCC and in a desirable size. In its current condition, I would estimate $500+/-. If you clean it up and replace all worn parts I'd estimate $800-$1000 on eBay. If you can do the work yourself, you'll save a lot of money. If you take it to a shop for the work, plan on spending $300-$500 depending on what it needs. Check around the forum to see if any members live near you; many members would be willing to help you out for a reasonable amount.

It looks to be ride able now, just re-wrap the bars and go.

Since this is the forum for pricing, I'd guesstimate $800 after a bit of a scrub-up and new brake hoods.

The pantographed parts are valuable, particularly that headset, I have never seen a headset with pantographing. I assume the brake levers are also pantographed?

Not sure if Conti continued to use Pelizzoli's signature on Ciocc frames after he bought the brand in 1980, but if not, that's probably a very late Pelizzoli-built frame from the late 70's. Check for a Pat number on the top of the rear derailleur, which appears to be Super Record, which was also introduced at about the same time. Sr. Pelizzoli's still around and still making and restoring frames, he's in his early 70's now.

You are no longer an heir, you are now a caretaker. IMHO, Ciocc bicycles are ambrosia. If you are knowledgeable about bicycle repair, take it apart and regrease the bearings. Carefully clean up the rust and grunge, install new brake pads and hoods and tape. Fit it with an appropriate saddle for your derriere and ride my friend, ride like the wind. Keep it forever and bequeath it later in life. There are few bikes better than a CIOCC especially with Pelizzoli's name on it. Do not, I say, do not even think about a repaint. Welcome to the (unofficial) club.

Some more pics, I can't find any type of serial number. The detail is incredible on this bike. I was planning on re painting it, I work in a car paint shop at weekends, I could match the colour and get it bang on, would need to source the stickers though.

Better to clean and polish it up first, would suggest you not paint it.

That's a very special bike you have there. I have a newish Ciocc, which is really not the same thing (the founder and frame builder sold the name ages ago), but a friend of mine has a San Cristobal that was his main ride for more than twenty years, before he got a carbon fiber bike. It's still a fantastic bike. Clean it up, replace the consumables and enjoy the ride in style.

Pick up some Wood Bleach and soak the fork, and anything else with chrome on it. It should clean up all that rust quite nicely and surprise you. Then just wax the frame but be careful on those decals. Italian paint and decals are normally quite fragile and crumble and flake just talking about it. Very nice bike and shouldn't take too much to get it back on the road. I wouldn't repaint though.
