TAURUS Modello Competizione – authentic bike of Italo ZILIOLI (Team Filotex 1968) – SOLD

Taurus was founded in 1908 in Milan by the engineers Vittorio and Umberto Fabbri, the Taurus is completely realized in Italy, in the Milan plant located in the Vigorelli area. The Taurus bikes stand out immediately for their quality and elegance, distinguishing themselves thanks to their strongly connotative technical characteristics. They were producing mostly bikes for public, but in 1950s and 1960s they build also bike for professional riders.

Italo Zilioli was born in 1941 in Turin, Italy. He won 58 races as a professional, including the 1966 Züri-Metzgete. He also totaled 5 stage wins at the Giro d’Italia and finished the Giro in the top 5 on six occasions and made the podium four times, finishing 2nd in 1964, 1965 and 1966, and finishing 3rd in 1969 as a member of Filotex. During the 1970 Tour de France he won stage 2 and took over the yellow jersey, which caused a minor controversy as it angered his teammate Eddy Merckx, who was anticipated to wear the jersey for the majority of the race and repeat as champion. Zilioli held the jersey for three stages before relinquishing it to Merckx…
