Chesini was founded in 1925 by Gelmino Chesini in his workshop of Nesente (near Verona, Italy) when he created his first race bike, named CHESINI BICIPRECISION. In the post war period, the activities grow quickly and, in 1947, Gelmino Chesini acquires a bike factory, Cicli VALLETTI, and moves the headquarters of CHESINI bikes to Verona.
However Chesini never stops researching innovative solutions for its bikes. In 1963 a Chesini bike won 100km solo World Amateur Championship and in 1964 and 1965 CHESINI also won the 100km Team World Amateur Championships.
The Chesini X-Uno is one of the most representative bikes of Chesini history and their top model of mid/late 1980s. The frame is made by a special combination of Columbus SL and SP, called SLPX, brazed with microfusion of chromed lugs. Extraordinary details like ”X Uno” engravings on the lugs, bottom bracket shell and rear brake bridge, internal routing for brake and shifters cables for aerodynamic reason and beautiful paintjob makes this bike a real eyecacther. Build with Campagnolo Super Record groupset of latest generation (non fluted crankarms) , upgraded with Campagnolo Cobalto Chesini brake levers and brakes (looks like the Cobalto stones has beed replaced, often fall off), superb Wolber TX-Profile rims and original Chesini leather straps.
Nice catch for any vintage bike lover. Amazing condition. Fair price.
