At L'Eroica 2010 Gios Torino present this model. It's a re-issue of the successful bike used by the famous Brooklyn team. Specific a re-issue of the bike Roger de Vlaeminck's fourth victory in Paris-Roubaix.

Always been a great fan of De Vlaeminck and somewhere in 1980 I bought my first Gios Torino.

Marco (son of Aldo) Gios explained this model will produced in only 35 pieces.
For me there is a lot of history on this bike so a few months later I picked up the frame in Italy.

Note : after the separation there are two Gios company's. It's confusion but my heart goes out to the Torino-part. That means also you must go to Italy to buy your frame. But it's not so hard to visit Italy :mrgreen:

Good food, nice people, great place to make a tour on a bike.

After a visit (spring 2011) to some friends in Italy I came back with a lot of souvenirs including the Gios Torino SR PR 1977
Image

I also became a article from an Italian magazine
Image

Some details
Image

Image

Image

Image

A few months later I have to thank them: Aldo, me, Marco at L'Eroica 2011

I had the plan to use the bike for Paris-Roubaix Ciclosturist 2012. The first plan was to build the bike with modern alu Campa parts.

But after a few good nights the plan even get's better................

Also some good and great dreams. Dreaming about my first two Gios Torino bike's and some great adventures.

24 hour course mid 80's
Image

Somewhere in the North of France
Image

And................the south of France
Image

An dreamed about those great Brooklyn years...........
Image

I also dreamed about that great Campa 50 anni group................

So when I weak up there was just only one thing in my mind: 50 anni group!

Ok it's not time correct but I'm not looking for correct I'm looking for fun!

So I called the project team together and told my plan
Image

Just put as many 50 anni parts on it! But don't pay to much.
Image

And searching was on........................

Some 50 anni parts are hard to find. So somes parts I used some other nice stuff. But I'still try to find the rest of the 50 anni group

Image

Very nice Marchisio freewheel. It's also good. Not much noise and shifting is great!
Image

See first post :mrgreen:
Image

The final result

Note: when riding a retro bike tour I put some old pedals on the bike 8)

Verry nice :)

Every man cave should have scalextric and a pile of frames in the corner with an obligatory frame done up in Raleigh Team colours......I guess you can feel the jealousy :D

At the start of this topic I mention that I going to us this Gios Torino for Paris-Roubaix..............

And so I did

Last year (2012)

On the first sector off cobblestones at Troisville. Start Early so sunset is lovely.................
Image

At Wallers Arenberg the famous forest with very nasty stones.
Image

Temperature rises and so more summer outfit............. Still a lot of pave to go
Image

It was my 4th and like Roger de Vlaeminck at it 4th victory I ride with number 27. Special request
Image

Here riding on the last part of the famous section of Carrefour de L'Arbre.
Image

Entering the velodrome of Roubaix. Every time a chickenpox moment
Image

I but also the bike did a great job. A frame like this is born to attack the cobblestones. The Campy 50 anni parts also keep well. Great bike, great event, great day
Image

My wife also was very pleased and see take a lot of great pics this day. Love here!
Image

The romantic end of every Paris-Roubaix
