1978 De Rosa£ 3,595
Ugo De Rosa, was one of the most successful Italian framebuilders of his generation. Born in 1934 his early passion for bicycles lead him to study mechanics and engineering at a technical college in Milan and it wasn't long later that in the early 1950s he opened his first bicycle shop and began the manufacture of racing quality bicycles. He supplied many champions with his high end frames (Gianni, Eddy Merckx, Francesco Moser) and strongly influenced the industry with his groundbreaking ‘Cusano Milaniro’ frames.
