Description

Licinio Marastoni was born in 1922 in Reggio Emilia and was a successful amateur racer. He was originally destined to become a priest but left school at the age of 11 and decided for cycling and how to build bikes. He was so good that by his 17th birthday, he made frames under his own name. After the war he had to restarted to built bikes, which were pretty advanced for their time.

The Marastoni brand is affirmed in Italian cycling history as a guarantee of traditional craft with the passion for a totally custom approach.  The 1960s, 1970s and 1980s represents the golden age of Italian cycling and Marastoni embodied, among other brands, the values of historic framebuilders worldwide. Licinio earned its reputation in top level framebuilding by hand-built meticulous and craftsman’s attention to detailHe built frames for a numbers of pros, including a TT frame with Bianchi decals for Coppi, and a severals frames for Moser, including one used for one of Giro d’Italia victories.

Sadly, Licino’s only child Marco Marastoni died in a car accident in 1972, and Licinio stopped with bike bussines. After many requests, he decided to return to the torch. From then on, all his best frames were made under Marco Marastoni name and were only made on a special request by his friends and acquaintance.

Proudly presenting one of the most exclusive bikes ever, the Marastoni Aero SL shinning in outstanding pearl light green paintjob. The frame is work of art, featuring the perfection and attention to details to providing the best performance you might expect from mid 1980s racing machine:

  • gold plated ‘m’ spotted on the fork crown,
  • aero mounted shifters,
  • internal cable routing
  • aerodynamic chainstays
  • ”Marco” engravings on the top of the seatstays and bottom bracket shell
  • – lugs with cut-outs
  • custom designed braze-on for bottle cage
  • – the frame is marked with LM and number 90

Only the best parts are good enough for a frameset like this and by no surprise it’s build with the most colelctible groppo ever- Campagnolo 50th Anniversary, 3ttt 50th pantograph cockpit, Mavic GP4 rims and San Marco Concor saddle. No much words needed.

A work of art. Extremely rare. L’Eroica ready.
