Hello guys 8)
today I present one of the first titanium bike ever built in Italy (Verderio Inferiore, Como), a PASSONI. The frame was produced in the late 1980s (confirmed by the staff passoni), but assembled in 1992 with all CampagnoloOR record group , the photos speak for themselves, has never been used ..................
frame, fork, combo stem and seatpost are made of titanium, Passoni used titanium at 99.5% and the pipes were formed by lamination,
the welds are smoothed, all frames are custom-made!
