NOS Shimano 105SC (PD-1055) pedals

Absolutely perfect, NIB.

Italian goodness: Simoncini frameset

Simoncini 56cm frameset, Columbus SLX, red/chrome:

An Italian racer in the purest of forms - red, chrome, and built with Columbus SLX. Frameset is made with fastback seatstays and internal, top tube rear brake cable routing. Partial chrome fork and rear triangle. Campagnolo front dropouts and 1010B rears. Has a pump peg mount on the headtube and dual water bottle mounts.

There are some surface rust areas of cosmetic consideration, as seen in the photos, and there are some red touchups scattered around the seattube area, mainly around the surface rust spiderwebbing. Chrome is typical Italian - not too deep with some rust specks. Making up for any of these age spots is the fantastic, original paint job over the full-chrome frame - the "Simoncini" lettering, which is under the clear, doesn't even register to the touch.

  • Seattube: 56cm CTC
  • Top tube: 56cm CTC
  • 27.2mm seattube for 27.2 seatpost
  • Italian BB and headset threading
  • 130mm rear spacing
  • Made for recessed brake mounting
  • Braze-on FD mount
