Liotto - holy cow that is nice. And there's also the Gino '60 with - wait for it - drillium chainrings, centerpull brakes, and leather saddle I may need a moment alone ...

Not sure we're going to be able to top the Gino 60. Or even match it. Need to figure out pricing.

Battaglin hasn't been mentioned so far, I think. This isn't in the repro spirit of the thread, but it does seem to represent an effort to build a no-compromise modern steel racing bike, which, of course, is exactly what the more traditional-looking lugged steel bikes in this thread were in their day.

The first steel frame in the world with oversized lugs

You should ReRead the Thread, Feel free to scroll on as some of us here are interested in the NEW Bicycles and not a discussion about rust.

I agree , It looks pretty cool and the Pricepoint is more than fair.

Well, let's just pretend it's not there. It would be easy enough to lose the fenders, so no big deal there I suppose.

Looking for pricing on this bicycle I discovered a cool Bicycle For Sale website .. Domo Arrigato !

Another modern steel Battaglin, somewhat closer to their earlier bikes in spirit than the one I posted upthread (note that custom builds are available):

Beautiful frame. It really deserves a component upgrade to vintage Campagnolo.

Man, I'm gone for awhile and porn invades the forum!

How about going back much farther, like 1930's style? I love my Pashley Guv'nor I picked up a couple of years ago and it stays in my normal rotation.

https://www.pashley.co.uk/products/guvnor

The Guv’nor is a revival of one of Pashley’s oldest designs, the 1930s Path Racer, but updated to cope with the demands of modern life. Legendary Reynolds 531 steel is used by our craftsmen to produce a frame with a classic slack geometry, which provides you a dynamic yet natural riding position aided by the inclusion of authentic North Road handlebars.

Vintage Campagnolo upgrades are overrated

Crust has some lugged steel frames and a funky C&V vibe, including some lugged frames with disc brake mounts.

Really nice to see curved fork blades and level top tubes on these retro bikes!

While I have seen a Crust here and there, I had no idea. I think crust hangs out here a lot.

This also available on the Chesini site; frameset only. I like how the Italian makes carry traditional chrome embellishments.

A beautiful example here with a very unique made-in-Italy Columbus lugged? frame available in 16 sizes The Bottecchia Legendary. My one criticism here is the crankset - way too modern looking. But otherwise - wow! Around $3500 from what I can see.


Beautiful bike and worth the $$, imho. But I disagree. Once you go with brake/shift levers, you can't criticize a crank for not looking classic. IMHO, of course.
