Finding the Gios Compact Pro:
Every once in a while one stumbles into a opportunity that can’t be over looked and so was this one. This Gios came as a frame set that has been used only for 500 Km’s (less that less than 400 mls) and was stored for the next 10 years as being replace by a modern day crap fibre un …Fortunately a deal was made and this blue ‘un came home with the promise to the 1st owner and his wife that it would be rebuild as how it was when bought new. A decision not so common as many upgrade with new modern parts. And so the frame-set was brought to her new home incl the bill of sale, brochure and touch up paint which made it all the more interesting.

The work:
The bike was simple put brand spanking new as nothing was damaged the chrome was stunningly new so all effort was beging put in finding the correct parts and matching it to the beauty of the frame set which included a lof of polishing etc.

The finish:
Another great example of Italian cycling history although it’s not her famous brother the Torino it’s still another fine example to admire and it now graces the living room in all her glory.
