DE ROSA Super Prestige Campagnolo Record, 56cm (1978)

Description

Ugo De Rosa, one of the most successful frame builders was born on January 27, 1934 in Milan, Italy. His passion led him to study mechanics and engineering at a technical college. Later, in the early 1950s he opened his first shop and commenced the manufacture of racing bicycles. He supplied many champions with his high-end bicycles (Gianni Motta, Eddy Merckx and Francesco Moser…), and also strongly influenced the cycling industry with his amazing bikes from Cusano Milanino.

The Super Prestige was not a single race, but a season long competition similar to the World Tour of today. Riders accumulated points throughout the year, with bigger races providing more points.  It was a big deal to win because the idea was that the winner was truly the best all round rider of the year.

In 1973, Eddy Merckx switched from Colnago to DeRosa as frame supplier. Ugo De Rosa designed specially designed chainstay so the frame felt stiffer. Eddy Merckx won the Super Prestige in years  ’73, ’74 and ’75 and those were also the prime years that he officially rode De Rosa built bikes. Ugo De Rosa named their top model by that competition and Merckx’s achievement.

Here we are proudly presenting another legendary Italian steel machine, the Ugo De Rosa‘s masterpiece from late 1970s – DE ROSA Super Prestige. The frame is work of art, made of Columbus SL tubing, featuring the perfection and attention to details for providing the best performance you might expect from late 1970s racing machine. Equiped  with superb Campagnolo Record groupset (PAT.78) and De Rosa pantographed shifters, seatpost, stem, chainring.

Iconic and highly collectible. L’Eroica ready. Original condition.
