the plot thickens! I wonder if either company is run by the Gios family?
Gios Torino still is.
Early 2010 the company split in two:
1) The Asian part that works world wide with al kinds off bikes. Alfredo Gios still give some advices.
2) The Italian part that build high end frames and only operates on the Italian market. It runs bij Aldo Gios and his son Marco.
I've been there a few times and believe me: alive and kicking and very much Italian!
Here some foto's
Visit in spring 2012. Pick op a frame for my friend. In the middel Aldo and on the right Marco Gios
Every size but in steel
Showroom is like a museum. Must visit for retro fans!
There great friendly people. Here I'm eating pizza with Marco at the Gios Torino showroom
It was this spring when the organized a Gios Torino 65 anniversary
Marco Gios is a great fan of all kind off retro stuff
Visit the showroom is very interesting for retro-bike-fans. You just can go inside without buying something.
