Guerciotti was founded in 1964, when Italo (an expert cyclocross rider) and his brother Paolo decided to open a small bike shop of 20 square meters for the selling and maintenance of bicycles in Milan, Italy. Italo was very passionate about the technology and manufacturing bikes while Paolo was competitive and active in cyclo-cross especially in 1970s.
And the 1975 is an historical year for the Guerciotti company. In fact, besides to increase the manufacturing of racing bikes, thanks to the Paolo’s Guerciotti dyanamism, Guerciotti has a real commercial escalation starting to export his products all over the world, and mainly in the USA, sponsoring also in the same time the American Ten Speed Drive – Guerciotti.
