DEROSA Professional SLX (mid/late1980s)


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.

Here we present stunning looking and very successful bike made by Ugo De Rosa, the Professional SLX. The frame is work of art, made of superb Columbus SLX – a very stiff and light tubing with inner reinforcements. The frame is featuring the perfection and attention of details to provide the best performance you might expect from mid 1980s racing machine. Build with complete Campagnolo C Record groupset, pantograph Ugo DeRosa 3ttt cockpit, original Turbo saddle and Ambrosio ”Servizio corse” wheelset. The cherry on top of the cake are extraordinary Campagnolo Cobalto brakes (original stones), which were very popular amongs the professional riders in that era.

Iconic and very collectible. For all DeRosa lovers.
