Mondonico Columbus ELOS frame 57cm $1,500

This is an ďif you know, you knowĒ situation. Antonio Mondonico was the godfather of Italian framebuilders










. Active between 1989 - 2005, Antonio made bicycles of the absolute highest caliber, by hand, in his own private shop behind his family home outside Milan. Although he trained the frame builders at Gianni Motto and Colnago, he saved his best for the 200 odd custom orders that he made himself every year.

I lived in Italy for three years and collected vintage bikes. I found this one on Facebook Marketplace, a steel worker in Milan had built it up as his daily cruiser, complete with basket and fenders. It was horrible. Thatís where the paint chipping on the chain stay came from. I have a very sad photo of how she used to be built up for anyone curious.

The frame is 57cm c-c on the seat tube. Happy to provide other measures for someone interested.

The frame is made of Columbus Extra Leggere Over Size (ELOS). This is the gold standard of racing bicycle steel.

Condition: the frame is perfect, the paint not so much. You can see the damaged paint in the photos. There is ZERO rust and no dents or cracks at all - again, the steel is perfect.

In the Classic & Vintage section of Bike Forums is an active For Sale section. Cross posting or duplicating your ad there will get you more eye balls.
- Best of luck! If I weren't more of a C&V Bottom Feeder I'd be most tempted. I just over paid for a $70 Specialized Allez long term project bike, otherwise this would be right up my alley.... or right down my paved road!

cheers.
