It took a while but the wait was worth it. Here we have the Ciöcc San Cristobal frame that I left to Mr. Pelizzoli himself a few months ago and asked him to restore. Maybe you remember a previous post about it. He took really good care of it, and now it shows all its original beauty. The color is a special one, custom made only for the cycling team “Verdellese” based near Bergamo (IT), and makes this piece extremely rare. I had to wait a little longer than usual only because we were waiting for the new set of decals to be printed, but from now on, if you’re planning to have the team restore your Ciöcc, you should know that the all series are available again. Please get a look to the full gallery here.
Since yesterday, Pelizzoli’s new website is online! It is called Pelizzoli world. Digging into their blog i found these pictures of frames waiting to be restored, and here it is! An old friend… Actually the green one is mine, I left it there last month and soon it will be perfectly restored… Looking forward to that! Now enjoy Pelizzoli’s website and blog, where you can find the new frames (road and track) made by Giovanni himself. For any information related to frame buying feel free to contact me, I’ll be in Bergamo soon to talk once again to the artisan Giovanni.
… or the old school if you prefer. This is an example of real Italian craftmanship. Mr. Giovanni Pelizzoli is still really active with his brazing torch, and in this picture he is showing one of the latest model made, lugged steel construction, Columbus tubing and gold finishing for lugs and chain stay. Sweet, don’t you think? There is a small number of frames like the one you see in this picture that are for sale. For any further information, like prices, sizes, colors and so on, you can contact me via mail. They are such masterpieces!
