Confente – Pro Strada

  • The Bike – 1978 Confente Pro Strada, serial #03.
  • The Story – Peter Gilbert turned me on to this one.  Acquired from American cycling legend Jock Boyer.  I went to his shop on the Monterey Peninsular to pick up the bike and saw all the other cool bikes he had including a number of other Confentes and bikes that Mario built for him.  Notice the word ‘Strada’ missing on both sides of the chain-stay.
  • The Cool Factor – It’s a Confente!  Need I say more?
