I am selling a rare, classic GIOS hardtail MTB bike, bought direct from the Primera Sports race team, which was called 'Gios Primera', in the 1990s when they changed team bikes.

Ideal for a full refurb. Gios are still actively selling road bikes, so matching paint should be available.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143083568419

It has a Pace RC31 carbon rigid fork in superb condition (selling individually for £120 in exc condition) , with the original XT groups throughout and the matching GIOS blue seat !

Wheels not included (previously sold), but a set of XT wheels are easy to find.

Pretty rare bike and looks awesome in the Gios blue - always used to attract comments and questions at races.

PS. These are VERY rare - GIOS only made them as a prototype in 1990-91 and then returned to road bikes only, so a real collectors bike in their rather beautiful 'Italian blue' (think of their World Cup football team...)

See the 'Gios Project' from Pedalroom:

https://www.pedalroom.com/bike/gios-evo ... ject-28452

"Absolutely gorgeous and unique model produced by Gios. According to my investigations there is only one model like this is the world as it is a prototype! Bike produced 25 years ago (1990-1991) by Gios in Italy when they made some MTB trials but they stopped the project quickly."
Frame: Chromoly 2730 selected and tested by Gios in Italy
More Info: Unique model / prototype

I’ve moved this to the marketplace section as there was no price but a link to your sale. Feel free to start another for sale post but it must have a firm asking price, probably less than the eBay price since there’s no seller fees on the forum
