Francesco Moser, born 19 June 1951 in Palù di Giovo, Trentino, nicknamed “Lo sceriffo” (The sheriff), is an Italian former professional road bicycle racer. He was dominant from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s and won the 1984 Giro d’Italia, the 1977 world road racing championship and six times in three of the five classics. He turned professional in 1973, showing a stylish pedaling style. But his powerful build meant he wasn’t a gifted climber. His 273 road victories puts him behind Eddy Merckx (525) and Rik Van Looy (379), but ahead of Rik Van Steenbergen (270) and Roger De Vlaeminck (255).
After his carrer Francesco Moser began building racing bikes, as did many Italian bicycle racers, in his small workshop in Trento, Italy. Moser’s frames are unique among Italian racing bicycles for being fillet brazed using silver solder rather than using lugs with brass brazing (silver solder never gets hot enough to weaken the tubing and thus bicycles constructed in this manner do not need to be reinforced with lugs, thus reducing the bicycle’s weight). After brazing, each frame is hand filed and aligned on a digital alignment table. The smooth lines resulting from the lack of lugs are emphasized with a unicrown fork and an integrated seatpost, attached by an expander bolt in a manner similar to the handlebar stem.
Dimitri Konyshev, born 18 February 1966 (in Gorky) is a former Russian pro cyclist. In 1990 Konyshev would become the first ever rider from the Soviet Union to win a stage in the Tour de France. All total in his professional career Konyshev would win nine Grand Tour stages becoming one of the few riders to win a stage in all three Grand Tours. He won 4 stages at the Tour and the Giro, he also won a single stage in the Vuelta a Espana. He followed his silver medal at the 1989 World Championship with a Bronze medal in 1992 at Benidorm and later in his career during the 2000 Giro d’Italia he won the Points Classification, as well as the overall Combativity Award.
Here we offering an authentic racing bike of Russian rider D.Konyshev, the Moser Leader AX Evolution. The highlights are undoubtedly super quality ORIA FSB (fillet silver brazed) tubing, which main tube end on one side is horizontal ellipse shape and the other side is vertical ellipse shape tube. The frame is definetly stiffer than other frames from this era and is built with top of the line Shimano Dura Ace 7410 8s groupset, Gipiemme Tecno 416 wheels, ITM cockpit and Flite Titanium saddle.
