Molinari was an Italian frame builder from Torino region, northwest part of Italy. They were active run years 1930s – 1960s, they made some very nice bikes, also sponsoring a cycling team.

The craftsman hands down wisdom and love for the exasperated care of detail. Engineers, stylists, technicians without prejudice make the perfect synthesis between the total tradition of the brand, the absolute quality and value of the materials and components and the continuous search for innovative technical and stylistic solutions. Thus class, prestige and freedom are achieved. Beauty, perfection, passion. And the work becomes immortal.

Proudly presenting beautiful Italian top class vintage racing machine – MOLINARI Corsa which dates back to late 1940s. The frame is a real masterpiece, featuring beautiful details of lugs and fork crown. Made of Falck steel tubes which are jointed into chromed lugs to the head tube, and are filled brazed to the seat tube. It shines in Molinari’s green paintjob.

Besides the frame, the highlight of this Molinari is certainly the iconic “Campagnolo Cambio Corsa” gear. This rod-operated powerhouse secured Gino Bartali’s second Tour de France victory. One of its major strength was the perfect chain tension and reliable operation in rough conditions with mud, gravel and pavé.
