De Rosa Professional

I tried making this work, but my body cannot handle a 54cm. Itís full Nuovo Record with a Super Record headset. A few chips in the paint, the worst is the drive side chainstay and a small ding in front of the right shifter. Also chips under the bottom bracket. The chrome on the fork is almost perfect except on the right crown. I will send detailed info and pics if interested. $1450 shipped or $850 for frame and fork.

So nice, so elegant yet so pure and simple. No clicking when you shift, no hidden brake cables, I love it.
I just started working again after being shut down for almost 3 months. Right size, wrong price for me.

That bike should be priced higher, it's a heck of a deal.

Pretty sure that's what I listed it here for. Maybe I'm thinking of my Tommasini..

Yeah I had a Tommasini listed here a few months ago for a bargain price that didnít sell.

Iíd like to see some comments to date this De Rosa. It looks to me to be a late 70ís - early 80ís model - pretty uncommon and really nice condition. BTW , Super Prestige isnít the model name. It was a points series award given to riders in the 70ís . Merckx of course dominated it, so youíll see that sticker on De Rosa and Merckx frames.

Yeah, I was wrong about the name. I’m not to knowledgeable about De Rosa’s.

It was estimated to be a 1978-79 frame.

Yes, it is technically a dent, but many of the bikes that I have seen that have been ridden have some marring/paint loss in that area because of the front brake hitting the tube.
I would not consider it a deal-breaker.

Too bad it doesn't fit you, that's a lovely bike. Way too small for me.
