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
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
I also became a article from an Italian magazine
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................
