Guerciotti – Sprint

  • The Bike – Mid ’80s Guerciotti Sprint.
  • The Story – Token aluminum bike.  Built by Alan and was referred to as the screw and glue bike.  The tubing and lugs were threaded and joint together by screwing and gluing.  Anodizing of the tubing made them chip-proof.  Equipped with Campagnolo Victory group with the funky SYNCRO shifting (Campy’s attempt at index shifting).
  • The Cool Factor – Early attempts by the Italians to “improve” cycling technology.
