Sancineto Frame info please....

I have a newly aquired Sancineto road frame and would like to find a resource to help me date the frame. Does anyone know of a Serial # database or other builders info? Thanks!

I cam across your post on your Sancineto frame. I'm consdiering buying one, and wanted to dig up some info from an owner.

Which model do you own? How does it ride? What info did you dig up about his frames? How much did you pay for your frame?

Many thanks

I can't help with anything specific but I do have ways of narrowing down the vintage of a bicycle. If you have a moment, spend a bit of time looking through How Old Is My Bike? and try to apply some of the information contained there.

I have no model information on my frame. I believe that this small builder just built under his name, Gianni Sancineto and made changes from year to year. I understand the family has been building bicycles from 1919 but it has always been a family business.

Here is an interesting quote I found about the Marque:
To an aficionado of custom Italian road racing bicycles, a Sancineto is considered Holy Grail territory. Regardless of their desirability, however, they are still one of the most unknown marques. Once you get past the flamboyant paint, fine engineering details start to appear, along with the realization that you’re looking at something really special.
Sancineto is a family-run frame builder located in Cuneo, Italy. Pietro Sancineto, in the Italian tradition, raced bicycles and began making frames around 1919. His son Sabastiano carried on, who trained his son, Gianni. Gianni is, to the best of my knowledge, still making frames
.

The previous owner of my frame indicated that it may be a 1984 but I do not know their basis for that date. Perhaps my best clue's are the Columbus Aelle tubes and the 130mm rear spacing. It also has a shop sticker which indicates that it was sold out of a shop in Denmark, Pedal Atleten. I am doing more research on that now.

I am not yet riding mine as it is still in the workstand. I am building it up with Campy Chorus and am still aquiring the parts. I hope to have it off the rack this summer sometime. It is being built up as a sporty rando bike for shorter distances, 200 or 300 km events. Of course form will be as important as function but it will not be period correct. It will be a 2x9 drive with a VO front rack for a Rivendell bag. I'll have to see about clearance for fenders when I get the wheels built.

Price??? A gentleman never tells about the details of his affairs but if you were guessing around the $300 mark you would not be far off!
