1992 Basso Astra – Custom Retro-modern Italian road bike – 54cm
Check out our latest custom retro-modern bike! Early 90’s Basso Astra freshly built up with Campagnolo 20 speed kit. This bike is dead sexy and rides like a dream. It’s the best. Hot pink and purple it can’t be missed. The ride is plush, quiet and shifts beautifully.
Very nice, light Columbus EL steel tubes lugged with Basso dropouts. Built with Campagnolo Daytona levers, Centaur Ultra-torque crankset, Record front derailleur and vintage Athena calipers. The wheel set is a mix. Spinergy Xaero rear (one of my personal favorite wheels) and a bladed spoke/sealed bearing front wheel.
The frame has some patina but still looks great. Some noticeable nicks on the top tube and most importably what was a rust spot on the right front of the top tube has been sealed over in addition to a delightful masking with a Campy decal.
In my opinion the bike both rides and looks exceptional. A great collection bike and a great rider. $950
