Description

Do you remember the epic 1952 Tour de France picture of Coppi and Bartali passing a water bottle? If you look closer you also see a man popping out from a convertible team car behind them. That is exactly Umberto Marnati, mechanic of Fausto Coppi in the 1950s, later frame builder at Legnano and Bianchi Reparto Corse.

Having learnt lacing wheels and welding very young, Umberto Marnati decided to start manufacturing bicycles under his nem. And as it happend, he opened his own atelier in Milan - led by his son Daniele from the 1970s onward - a city with a tradition of excellent frame builders. And Mr. Marnati was no exception. Via Delfico no. 26 soon became a meeting point of enthusiasts who were keen to ride artisan racing frames which were largely renowned for unique attention to details.

This Marnati Corsa perfectly shows how accurate and meticulous Marnati frames are. Made of Columbus SL tubing, this bicycle is a true heap of refined details like the fine cutouts representing Marnati logo. This Corsa is one of the earlier ones with the blunt seat stay ends, clamped shifters or indeed the brake cable attached by Campagnolo clamps to the top tube. 

Mainly it's fitted withCampagnolo Nuovo Record groupset from 1970, but alos Universal central pull brakes, beautiful 3ttt Special cockpit, or Fiamme rims.

An early 70s machine made by a master frame builder, equipped with top parts and in great original condition. It really ticks all the boxes if you are in love with classic road bikes. 

Condition Used
The bicycle is in very good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original with some signs of usage like small scratches. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! Parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in great riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.
