Giubilato build

This is the one from the Seattle Bike Swap. I probably won't use these wheels for the finished but for now they'll good to have on there to roll around the shop.

This frame is Columbus Aelle tubing, my understanding is that it is rather middle rung frame, so I'll try to use the appropriate parts and not go "Captain Overbuild".

The forks do need some tough love.

The cranks came off a biggg Bianchi, these are the reason I bought a nouva alloro.

The Giubilato needs a 26.8 seat post.

I went to the stash for brake calipers and did an inspection, my Giubilato is one that uses reagular front and short reach for the back. Back to the stash I go.

Also here is a shot of the fork and the gentle persuasion needed.

My pat 84 basically flaps in the wind. This was an eBay purchase that didn't work. The mounting bolt hole is elongated, the pivot-barrel totally worn. Last weekend at the bike swap I was able to pick up an 83 body.

These sure looked good on the bianchi, I'd like to use them on Giubilato, but the barrel adjusters are missing.

The search continues.

I guess my last picture posted could not do justice for this build, if you saw it you know its not here now, lol. Yep it was an awesome build.

Back to the Giubilato, here are the pedals for the metal.

In this photo it appears blades are bent back. Perhaps a photograpahic effect? Perspective?

Yes, you are correct, this was a buget purchase. I'm going for risk rewards, I think it'll get best I can do for it. Unfortunately I haven't learned that they can't all be saved.

I've only found very scant information. I think it's a great alternative to the really good bikes of the day. From what i did see the brand appears in the early 80s as something like a house brand of an existing bike sales company. I saw an interesting ad with quite the build lol.

Is this a brand that are familiar with? What do you know, and when did you find out?

Thank you for the information regarding the name. It is new to me, which isn't saying much, hence me query.

You are doing a very fine job with the documentation!

That spoon, er I mean fork, needs an appointment with an alignment jig*.

Look forward to the next update.

upon completion of lavoare do not forget to apply gugieficazione transfer, a la Jim Cunningham's painting transfers

Sig. LXVI - just be careful not to permit il maestrissimo to set you up with stayer blades

Here is some brand background copied from a sold bike on Vintage Steel.

Manufacturer: Giubilato
Size: 60 cm
Eroica Approved Bicycle
Description:
Cicli Giubilate has a long tradition in Italian cycling. It was born as a typical bicycle shop in the center of Bassano del Grappa in the mid 1940s and thanks to the entrepreneurship of Rino Giubilato they soon established themselves as the builders and traders of the historical brands Brenta and Zenith in their Region.
In 1972, the two older sons of Rino Giubilato added to the small artisan production bigger industrial facilities. By acquiring the traditional brand Ganna in 1982, they had a breakthrough on the international market. The Italian production entirely guaranteed their bike's originality and high quality standards.

We are happy to present one of their house brand road bikes from the mid 1980s.
Our bike is built around a frame of Columbus Aelle tubing. This is a cold-drawn, microalloyed-steel thin-wall tubing which makes it especially lightweight for plain gauge material. Due to its strength it was often used for larger frames like ours, or even touring frames - basically for anything that needed to be extra stable.
To make the bike even more hard-wearing, the fork and the rear triangle were chromed. The great shiny looks are a nice side-effect.

A frame as tough as this one is a perfect base for an Eroica bike.

Here is some info from Classic Rendezvous, GANNA

Ganna

A famous brand founded in the beginning of the 20th Century by Luigi Ganna, a successful racer of large physical stature. The company became a major producer with high stature over the years. Today the bikes are produced by Giubilato including a line of classically styled models.

Last weekend I was able to meander to Portland to the shop o' Gugie, nice. I took full advantage his generosity and brought the Giubilato, and all the crappy skeletons of bikes that are past their prime. It was a very fun and interesting time, I also threw Mark a curve, he didn't know that he would have to do extra entertainment. Mrs. 66 was in house, thanks Mark my gal enjoyed the shop time and talk, she's not always like that about my time at home.

This was very interesting to me in that I bought 3 different forks, and Gugie didn't want to kill me, of different metals that needed setting, Columbus, Reynolds531, and high tension steel. The Columbus looked like it was the stiffer of the three, the Reynolds was quickest to set, and the high tension forks was very pliable but also needed the most play.

While we were there I enquired about some minor modifications for my Gitane TdF, I never liked the rear brake bridge, my last pos that brought was my clunker challenger with multiple problems, kind of like me. Lol

Mark is an awesome entertainer, my wife was just a buzz about the time and shop. Definitely a positive time, below is where Giubilato is at now, and my Peugeot Super Compilation, Thanks Mark!
