Last year in Italy, I visited an amazing bike shop that had over 20 high-end retro bikes in storage!

Bikes include a Yeti FRO, Diamond Back Ti and the original Manitou full suspension bike.

From memory they also had a two AMP bikes with linkage forks (B3 and B4 I think), a Yo Eddy and a Neon green Funk with elevated chain stays.

The also had one of Richard Cunningham's Mantis / Kestrel bikes circa 1990.

One large caveat: the owner did not want to sell any of them; even through they were stored in the rafters and not even on display.

If you ever visit Italy, put this one on your agenda:

F.lli Scavezzon
Via Del Commercia 20
Spinea,
30038
PH: +39 41 54 11 318
www scavezzon dot com

The store is owned by three brothers who are really friendly. Two of them speak near perfect English too.

If you do go - please let me know how you get on.

Andy Moorhouse.

Not only do they hold the holy grail of retro mountain biking frames but from this picture they also possess a second piece to the Turin shroud. Let the pilgrimage begin retro christian mtb'ers!!!
