Hard to get information about COPPI bikes.

Unfortunatly the internet is not very full with info about Coppi bicycles.
I've searched a lot but no good info about a history with models, materials aso could be found.
Did I miss something?

In case Yes, please show me the way.
Thanks.

In case you know a lot or a bit, please share it with all the other Italian bike lovers.

thanks, Arno

I do hope you find out more about them it is always nice to have some insight into a particular marque. My Sabatini is one tough nut to crack as the saying goes with little available but I keep searching the internet.

Search for Fiorelli as well, as they made the Coppi branded bikes.

The OP has another thread going about his aluminum-framed Coppi. That bike is from 1998, after Maschiargi bought the name, so not a Fiorelli product like many of the earlier ones.

I have one of the Fiorelli ones from the 70s; basic Italian racer. Decals are available on ebay.

Thanks for the input.
So Maschiargi produced the Coppi's from 1998.
Did this had any effect on the quality, in negative or positive way?
There is nothing on their side about older frames.

By this time Coppi was just a revived brand name. It was always a brand name actually, all contracted out. The Fiorelli bikes had some demand of their own and the workmanship on the upper level bikes was better than just production, some of the added hand work seen on small race shop bikes found its way into them.

Coppi has always been a marketing name and not the name of a "builder". I don't think any of the Coppi bikes will ever be truly memorable, even if some are quite nice. As regards your aluminum framed bike, this is not really the place to ask any information as few here will consider it be either classic or vintage.

Gebruik maar het fiets en maak je geen zorgen over de roep van de merk.

So it might be I'm better of with my steel Pinarello's.
Cause there is not a lot of info about the Coppi bikes I thought I had a special frame. Pitty.
Maybe I'd better sell it again.
Thanks anyway.
