RARE 58cm SOMEC AIR 2001 SLX WITH PANTOGRAMED CAMPAGNOLO SUPER RECORD GROUPO

Description

FOR THE SERIOUS COLLECTOR! UP FOR SALE IS THIS VINTAGE SOMEC ITALIAN BIKE IN A BEAUTIFUL BLUE. SOMEC WAS WAY AHEAD OF ITS TIME EVEN BEFORE COLNAGO, de ROSA, TOMASINI or MASI, IN BEING THAT THEY WERE ONE OF THE FIRST FRAME BUILDERS TO INCORORATE HIDDEN INTERNAL SHITER CABLES AS WELL AS THE HIDDEN REAR BRAKE CABLE. I HAVE NOT RIDDEN THIS BIKE FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS AND REMOVED THE CHAIN IN 1984 SO AS NOT TO BE TEMPTED TO RIDE IT. I RODE THIS BIKE LESS THAN 300 MILES AND IT STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL DURA-COMP U225 SCHWINN TUBULAR TIRES ON IT (rear does now not cling air). THE ORIGINAL SEDIS CHAIN WILL COME WITH IT. I ORDERED THIS BIKE IN JULY 1983 AND RECEIVED IT IN SEPT 1983 SO I AM NOT SURE IF IT IS A 1983 OR A 1984 MODEL. AND YES I STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL RECEIPT. AT THE TIME I BOUGHT THIS BIKE I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALER THAT THEY WERE ONLY MAKING 15 OF THESE WITH THIS PANTOGRAMED GROUPO ON THIS MODEL FRAME. HOW TRUE THAT IS I DO NOT KNOW BUT AS YOU CAN SEE THE SERIAL # IS A14, SO IT IS PROBABLY TRUE. REGARDLESS THIS IS THE 14TH ONE MADE! I ORDERED IT WITH MAVIC G4 WHEELS BUILT WITH DT 14/15 DOUBLE BUTTED 3X SPOKES AND A REGINA CXS 6 SPEED 12,13,14,15,17,19 CASSETTE. IT HAS CINELLI CRITERIUM sixty five-forty HANDLBARS AND CINELLI STEM. I HAVE INSTALLED GOLD ANODIZED TITANIUM CRANK BOLTS BUT I STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL BOLTS AS WELL AND THE ORIGINAL BREV DUST CAPS. I ALSO ORDERED THE SOMEC LOGOED FRAME PUMP WITH THE MATCHING BLUE SOMEC WATER BOTTLE WHICH WILL ALSO COME WITH THE BIKE ( the pump has a crack in it however nonetheless works). THE SEAT IS AN ASSOS WITH DRILLED HOLES AS WELL. EVERYTHING IS STILL JUST THE WAY I ORDERED IT WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE TOE CLIP STRAPS AND WATER BOTTLE CAGE. AERODYNAMICALLY POSITIONED PANTOGRAMED SHIFTER LEVERS ATTACH TO A UNIQUE AND DISTINCTIVE SOMEC DESIGNED ALUMINUM FITTING MATED WITH A SPECIAL BRAZE-ON FITMENT ON THE INNER UPPER FACE OF THE DOWN TUBE. COMES WITH A SOMEC FORK WITH AN INTEGRATED SEMI-SLOPING CROWN WITH DETAILED ENGRAVING, WHITE FORK UPPER FADES TO BLUE, HAND STRIPED PINSTRIPING BETWEEN CHROMED 3/four BLADES JUST LIKE THE CHAIN STAYS! THE PAINT AND DECALS ARE STILL LIKE NEW WITH A FEW NICKS HERE AND THERE AND A LITTLE BIT OF PITTING ON THE CHROME OF THE FRONT FORK (most commonly the proper aspect). AS YOU CAN SEE, THE DETAIL IN THE PANTOGRAMING ON THE SUPER RECORD COMPONENTS IS EXQUISITE TO SAY THE LEAST. ESPECIALLY THE BRAKE CALIPERS AND THE REAR DERAILLEUR. THE ALTERNATING WHITE AND BLUE PAINT ON THE DRILLED HOLES IS STILL VERY NICE. THIS BIKE IS SO BEAUTIFUL THAT EVERYONE WHO SEE’S IT FALLS IN LOVE WITH IT! FOR MOR PICS SEE MY CRAIGSLIST ADD.
