Vintage Titanium – 1976 Style

Hi Friends, sorry I’ve been away from the blog lately. Been building lots of custom ti frames as the sun has finally arrived.

Just popping in to post some interesting photos of a really old ti frame. There have been some discussions about the origins of this frame, but I can confirm that it was built in 1976. How’s that for old? We are definitely looking at one of the first generation ti builds, ever. The Campy dropouts and tig welds hold lots of secrets. All tubes are seamed titanium, probably CP. It was brought to me for a repair by friend and cycling legend Ivo Faltoni (Coppi’s bike mechanic). The components are not original.  Enjoy the pics.
