Very much loved and incredibly rare 1994 WILIER TRIESTINA 61cm SNOW polished Oria alloy tubing. I also have the original 1994 Wilier Bike Brochure and price list (pic attached).

Oria BiOval 7020 aluminium frame and fork in polished Snow finish. Both top and seat tube have oval profiles that turn from vertical to horizontal at each end. Frame has some lovely smooth welds at head tube and seat tube junctions. Stout overbuilt rear stays with chunky dropouts give the frame a really muscular feel. Brake cables are internally routed. There are a few marks, scratches and minor wear and tear but ultimately for a bike of this age and ridden steadily for 19 years it really is a beauty. Can honestly say I have never seen another one ever.

Bike would suit someone over 6ft, I am 6ft 4" and love the geometry.

This frame had to be ordered from a small shop in Wales (as far as I know the only shop in the UK that dealt with Wilier frames at the time) and came with cartridge bottom bracket and Shimano Ultegra headset. I built it up with new Shimano 105 STI group set, which back then took some figuring out! Classic black ITM handlebars and stem. Classic aero seatpost with understated grey Titanium Flite saddle. Wheels are much more recent anodised blue Mavic Cosmos rims and hubs with double butted spokes. Pedals are old style cleat Looks in black finish. Reason for sale is new bike and poor Wilier isn't getting the attention she is used to.

I'm looking for offers around £450 + £25 postage or you can collect from SW London.
