Rossin Ghibli with Dura Ace?

Did any late eighties Rossin's ever come with Dura Ace? My ex boss has contacted me about doing a "restoration" on a Rossin that looks about 86-89ish, so the DA is at least period correct? But, was it ever stock equipment? Looks like a bike that would have Campy to me, but what do I know? I don't want to waste his time looking for Dura Ace brake levers if he wants to put it back original. He's the type to just complete out the DA group and let it go though, rather than hunt down a complete group. So, what's stock?,,,,BD

Ghiblis were usually sold as bare frame and forks in the Toronto market.

Thanks clubman Anybody else? I see catalogs of fully built bikes, but none matching this color scheme. Mostly all have Campy?,,,,BD

There's a Rossin Prestige on ebay at the moment that is featuring 8 speed Dura Ace. It is from a very similar era to your ex-bosses Ghibli and it is located in Italy. It may not be original but, then again, it could be.

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Italian-V...#ht_1628wt_955

The Bulgier - -Rossin 88 catalogue shows Shimano groupsets used for their lesser models.

I think frames were readily available and Dura Ace from that era would have been the first choice for many guys (not that it would have been my choice as I have a Campy addiction).

I don't know about Canada but I would agree with Clubman that they would be offered as frame/fork. I am not sure when these were brought in my 10sp Drive but I am pretty sure liek the other offering you could buy any bike as a frame only or chose one of many 'kit' options from RX100 to C-Rec

Beautiful bike but you don't see many around. The Giblet model that is

I'm looking hard for a Ghibli, so if he decides to part with it and its 59-61cm, please have him reach out . It looks about 59

I bet he will sell it. He's about 6'2" or a little better, so I am not sure what he'd do with it. I have seen him ride a bike about 3-4 times around the parking lot of the bike shop he owns, that is in the two years I've known him. He used to ride a lot from what I hear and even raced for a while, but nothing lately. I will put him in touch with you if he decides to sell. All I want him to do is sell me his Schwinn Home Grown mtb. It's a 1x9 custom and weighs like 21 pounds. It's been hanging in the service bike storage for years now.,,,,BD

It's in my possession now, and the VERY first thing I did was take off that horrid excuse for a saddle A pair of Dura Ace brake levers are on the way from ebay, and ordering some cable housings, a white SM Regal saddle, white bike ribbon wrap, and some skinwall tires today. Most likely Paselas unless one of our distributors surprises me with something VERY special.,,,,BD

let me know if you ever decide to part with it or size does not fit. I have been looking for a Gibhli and I have a few bike that are too small.

Once again it's not mine to sell, I am merely doing the work on it. If the owner decides to sell he will probably want whatever it will bring. I doubt he would be interested in a trade, unfortunately. I will let him know he has an interested party though.,,,,BD
