Windsor Super Carrera?

  • Champion butted tubing?
  • I am not sure what this tubing is in quality. Is this a good frame? I like the looks.






Details about Windsor Super Carrera

The model AM-10 Super Carrera is shown and described in this 1979 manufacturer's catalogue -

AFAIK, Windsor bikes were made in Mexico and some were of high quality. I think some of the folks involved worked with or for Cinelli previoiusly. Their high end bikes were somewhat "Cinelli-esque".

I don't know that model, but the Profesional model is an awesome bike. I have a 1973 with all Campy stuff except some Phil hubs and it is one of my favorite bikes. I rode it at last year's Eroica California and it is in regular rotation with my other steeds. Again, I don't know how the Super Carrera compares , I'm sure the Columbus tubing and the Cinelli lugs on the Pro model make it what it is. I also have had Tange Champion on my old Centurion (Elite RS) that was very nice. I hope this helps, are you planning on building it up? Joe

Champion butted tubing. I was looking at this for awhile then I stopped. After a few days I was thinking about it again.

Tip -

you may discover it to have a BSC steerer paired with an Italian shell.

No clue yet. I have a few things laying around but nothing matching nor a complete build kit. It will be a frankenbike like most of my others.

Good-looking frame! Pity these never show up on our shores.
