Pelizzoli built (CIOCC) Gion frame, 57cm, very nice!

This is a rare and unusual GION frame, made by Giovanni Pelizzoli in the early 90's. After Pelizzoli sold the Ciocc name and manufacturing rights in 1980, he worked for major racing teams during the season, and continued to build frames with his family business during the off season. Approximately 140 Gion brand frames were built in the early 90's. If you're looking for the quality build of a CIOCC but want something a little different and less expensive, this is worth looking at.

Has a 57cm seat tube, and I think a 56 top tube. Nice hand built frame made with Deda tubing, has hidden top tube cable guides, pretty sure it's all chrome underneath, some pantographing. 130 rear dropouts, & will take any modern groupset (or vintage) with an Italian BB. Has original owner's last name painted on the top tube under the clear coat, so done at the workshop. I've touched up the frame some by hand, and it looks as good as it rides.

Takes a 27.2 seat post, comes with good Shimano 600 (6400 series) headset installed. $235 plus shipping. I use Bike Flights, and they're around $42 pretty much anywhere in the continental USA.

Oh boy, my size. Thinking .....

No brainer if only I hadn't bought three frames in the past 6 weeks.

Interesting how the entry and exit points for the brake cable are different spots on the top tube.

Yeah, that was done so that water would not easily enter in the front, and so that the cable would exit gracefully to the rear caliper on the back. Just one more touch that shows an experienced builder.

Forgot to mention that it comes with the seatpost binder bolt & dropout bolts, and uses a braze on FD.

Also have a couple of really nice build kits for this:
1) Red Mavic Helium wheelset with complete Dura Ace 7700 9 speed, either STI or down tube shifters with brake levers (Shimano suggests the non-series top end RL600 levers, which I have, or 1050's with white hoods). Might be convinced to swap the wheelset for one with Alex Crostini 3.1 rims and DA7403 hubs.
2) Ultegra 6600 triple FD and RD with Sugino XD series compact triple 50/33/24, 10 speed DA down tube shifters, brake levers, and an Ultegra/silver Open Pro wheelset.
3) Full Tricolor a) 7 speed with DT shifters or b) 8 speed with STI's, matching tricolor/FIR or Mavic rim wheelset, wheelset depends on 7 or 8 speed choice.

Any of the build kits can come with appropriate high end stem/bars/seatpost, white Sella Italia Q-bik saddle, white bar tape, Vittoria or Michelin tires, tubes, etc.

Man, you're a good salesman! OK if it's not a hassle, bring it along. I'm 90% sure I can't turn this deal down and if you let me get my grubby hands on it, that will cinch it. Will you be OK with PP friend if we close it?

This probably means I'll need to pass on this Coppi I recently got here. I'll make it available at the ride this weekend if anyone has interest. http://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...y-headset.html
