First, a better picture of the subject. I adjusted the light and contrast.


I know someone that put a BMX brake on the rear to replace the long reach Universal centerpull.

I read a comment that matches the situation here, the theory of holes, once you have dug one and find you are in deep, stop digging.

Wonder how that works, two different companies, trash in the recycle and recycle in the trash. Like the bike, it would be a no go...

I use to go by another name but changed it cause the name I use now better suits me and my riding. I hope my post helps someone since the first time I did a search on here for Garlatti Bike and asked a question I got nothing but these know it all no life jerks who think every post is a scam and there opinion is the bible. Anyway hope my post helps some one like me.This is not to bring attention to a ebay auction. This is a post about a bike I bought and had no luck finding info about when I bought it. Im not sure of the model year but for those looking on ebay the Vintage Garlatti bikes are friction shift meaning you dont have the clicking between gears and makes it alittle harder till you learn. I had my friend go over my Garlatti since he is a local wrench and he said he likes it although it was a entry level bike back then but really liked some of the stuff like the matchbox derailuer on the front and also the rear one. The brakes are center pull and they have good clearance and also are very strong. A down side is the bike are heavy and my guess is 28 to 30 pounds since all is steel even crank. The wheels are steel with indentions but when wet will be useless. You cant change over to 700 series wheels cause the brakes want go down that far. Also the brakes sing because of the indentions so i am going to get new wheels but cheap ones. My bike is a 61 cm and fits me nicely so I can ride more upright but the handlebars are narrow and the seatpost clamp is junk. The 27 1 1/4 are nice since they take up alot of the bumps. The brazing isnt that great but its a low price built bike so thats ok. Overall I am happy with the bike but the shifting is tuff. But from what componets are on the bike is is a 70's model year and also the water bottole cage has a latch to keep it from bouncing out on ruff roads and also had a lid for drinking and a lid for sprinleing water on your self. Hope this helps your decision since there poping up more and more. Also dont really care what the snobs here think. Just those who ride them or are looking. One more thing and that is had to change the cables because they were binding up.

Sold, thank-you to everyone

who took the time for input on the Garlatti project. It had some serious legs. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot. In the end I sold it with upgraded gearset (still Campy) and wheels (Dura Ace) . I gave the buyer the history and the origional Campag Valentine gear set and the centre pull brakes so it can be restored.
He was happy, I was ok, time to let go
In the end after subtracting the cost of the upgrades, cables, chain,wheels etc the Garlatti project netted me $380 clear and many good times. So I'm not complaining. I just need an other bike to obsess over. Anyone got a Schwinn Curcuit !!

Don't doubt the man.

After those tasteful gold enhancements, the extra braking power of that rear brake, the advanced under the bracket cable routing and the aero routing of the brake cables any true collector would be chomping at the bit.

I don't know whether you are being serious or yanking my chain. I came to this thread just recently and if this story is actually true, then this guy should make it a business because he has managed to take a bike that on it's best day, is in my opinion worth about $250, but to the right buyer, I guess the sky's the limit. Who knows? I wouldn't be into it if someone gave it to me but I digress. He stripped it down to the bare steel from what I can see removing any last trace of originality, combined a bunch of mismatched, lower-tier used components, and didn't so much as service the headset or bottom bracket and he netted $380? It is a good story, just not believable, IMHO.

Edit: I take that back. I see it has a front Dura-Ace hub. Definitely worth 4-5 times what I was thinking it was worth.

welcome to the thread though it's at it's end, no chain yanking. I had fun. the bike in it's final incarnation performed beautifully, no back brake, and fellow bikers would always love it in the flesh. I was offered $100 for the original wheels and took it replacing them with Dura-Ace + as you noticed, causing the rear brake issue. I guess that brings it closer to your $250. I also gave the buyer the original running gear, derailleurs, brakes etc. I'm not a purist and those lower-tier components worked seamlessly together. I suggest stepping out of the box once in a while. You might have some fun.
Cheers again for all the input, it was time to let it go........

last words

the main thing that I have been shown by this thread is that we have two camps helpers and harassers.
a few months back a had a visit from a guy my age that was interested in the bike. Like myself he was an addict with too many projects and little space. He loved the bike but knew if he took it he would end up spending $$ getting it re-chromed. The next day I received a thank-you for showing it and a pay-pal for a nice chunk of change.
on the other hand, never in real time, I've been a target for unhappy people
all in all I think there are more helpers and as many have said it's your bike....................

If it is Elon, he will likely have to sell more Tesla stock to pay for the OP's valuation on this bike . . .

...strange. Buying something that is not all that valuable to begin with, ******g it up in various ways, then attempting to profit from those mistakes, seems to be the new San Francisco business model.

Garlatti frames don’t carry the esteemed reputation of their contemporaries, but they still retain the style and glamor of an era when even entry level bikes were constructed from lugged steel and made by hand. The Italian bicycle industry, during the 70s and 80s, was quite incestuous, builders were manufacturing frames for each other and re-badging was rife. Garlatti created some frames for Cinelli that were designated ‘Riviera’ and exported as ‘replica racing frames’ to the US. Garlatti, it was rumored, was still in the bicycle business until only recently, creating frames for a niche local market. They were normally specified with a cottered crank set, steel rims, Weinmann brakes and a smattering of Campagnolo. This example is one of the finest to be found, in the collection of Eroica Cicli.

https://forums.bikeride.com/thread-7169.html

https://budgetbicyclectr.com/1970-s-...d-bicycle.html

1909
Emilio Garlatti at the beginning of the last century believed in the new means of locomotion of that period: the bicycle. Thus began his activity in the historic headquarters in the center of San Vito al Tagliamento repairing and selling to the public the bicycles of the Bersaglieri, the same bicycles that will be used in the First World War.
In the first post-war period, the business developed steadily and the bicycle took off as a universal, economical and safe means of transport.
1930
In the years of the Second World War Emilio founded the IVES "Fabbrica Velocipedi Emiliana Sala", based in Parma, thus escaping the war which in the Triveneto, his homeland, prevented any development of any private initiative.
At the same time, however, he also maintains the activity in San Vito, as a branch of his factory, where he dedicates himself to the sale and distribution of his bicycles built in the Parma factory.
1970
The 70s are the years of austerity, the price of hydrocarbons is skyrocketing.
The bike market is at its all-time high, many use the bike for short trips, leading to a new appreciation as a means of transport and a new vision of it.

...looks like that one from Budget Bicycle in Madison, WI is still available at only $599. You could probably buy that one, strip off all the original paint, and turn a profit again. Go for the style and glamor, sir. YOLO
