Funny, I've recently acquired a Griffe, went out this morning for it's first 'proper' spin.
Have to say, I've got a few 80s/90s road bikes and it's right up there, handles well and for steel it's pretty stiff. Has to be built up with record!
What's the number cast into the bottom bracket shell on the drive side?
Looks like (if you trust in web :wink:), there were only 500 made, mine's A322.

Hi Oldspoke

Thanks for the message.

Yes - ‘apparently’ 500 - I have read this too, but I couldn’t confirm for certain. Either way, I rarely come across them in person, but there’s a descent number of images on the web of others.

This one is numbered A160. It also has ‘World Champion ‘94’ as a top tube decal - I haven’t seen any other Griffe’s with that...

Anyway - really lovely bikes.

I've not seen that 94 decal before either, suggests it's quite a late one, but if the frame numbers are sequential it's earlier than mine.
I've got all the paperwork for mine and it was bought in 1990.
Still, top class bike and got to be worth £950 of anybodies money. :)

Griffe is Italian for Brand. Mine is A297. Definitely worth the money you are asking.
