Giuseppe Magni called ”Peppino” or ”Pep” was a bike mechanic for Professional Italian team and a famous bike manufacturer from Milan, Italy. During period 1975-1980 most of Magni’s framesets were made by very respected framebuilder Giovanni Losa from Vittuone (Milan, Italy), who was living not far from Pep. Giovanni Losa, well known as ”Vanni” was the secret frame builder of many famous others brands including Cinelli and very respected back in late 1970s. Framesets made by Vanni Losa are always something special, drawing attention and are famous for their stiffness and elegance.
Proudly presenting this classic beauty from late 1970s, Magni Pep made by Vanni Losa. The original paintjob shows the mix of metallic graphite and dark green wich is even more attracive when seen in person. Beautiful combination of Pep and Vanni engravinings are drawing attention all over the frame made of Columbus SL steel, which was top of the line back in the days and is fully equiped with Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset and Magni pantograph stem, seatpost and chainring. Haven’t seen much framesets with pantograph Columbus logo on the headset tube and this one has it.
A piece of art for an amazing price. Suitable for any cycling event.
