Here is a nice early 1960's Legnano pista.
This frame set was in pretty poor shape when we
found it. It's last use had been as a
single speed TT mount, hense the brake
hole in the front forks.
I first had the frame rechromed at Kustom Chrome in
Gisbourne, an excellent job a usual..thanks guys.
Trust me, chrome didn't look like this a couple of months ago!
I made my own stencil's for the Legnano down tube script, and
am very glad I did, the decals just don't cut it.
So after plenty of time preping and painting etc, I was
rewarded finally with a very pretty Legnano Pista.
Ercole Baldini on the Vigorelli velodrome.
Certainly a race pedigree second to none.
It was a real pleasure to bring this frame back
to life, it is now a real thing of beauty.
