During this era there was a proliferation of of highly skilled, artisan frame makers such as Cinelli, Masi, Colnago and Marastoni who were emerging from small villages in Northern and Central Italy. Many of these manufacturers have become renowned for their craftsmanship, innovation and attention to detail and are responsible for many classic Italian road bikes. The establishing of these frame builders was driven by the Italian obsession for road racing during the 20th century. A combination of an innate ability to produce stylish design pieces with passion underpins the foundation of todays vintage road bike enthusiasts.
Vintage bicycles are like classic cars, fine wines and antiques: the years advance but their beauty and value only grow. First produced in Italy in the early Fifties, Colnago has manufactured some of the most iconic and eye-catching bikes ever made. Models to look out for include the Mexico and Master.
