Restoration Criteria

FRAME:  Firstly the frame and dropout alignments are checked before being sandblasted, their structural integrity checked and any pitting filled before being primed. The base colour coat is then added before new decals are applied and finally several coats of clear lacquer applied. Bottom brackets are then re-faced before build up.

COMPONENTS:   All components are fully stripped (literally to the last washer) and all bearings are replaced along with cables. Components are electronically cleaned and polished where appropriate before being reassembled.
Where "new old stock" parts are used they are listed as NOS.
All wheels are newly built with stainless double butted spokes.

1978 FAGGIN 57cm

Faggin bicycles are synonymous with traditional craftsmanship and high-quality products. This is due to the work of it’s founder - Marcello Faggin – who, in Udine, Italy, began hand-building custom racing bicycles from steel in 1945. Like many of the great frame builders of his era, Marcello was a former racing cyclist, who had a keen eye for what made a high-quality racing machine.
After two years of operating in Udine, Faggin moved to Padua, where it is still located. However, the post-War years were difficult for the company and it wasn’t until 1970 that Marcello began to focus on supplying professional teams.  TOTALLY RESTORED
