1956 Rochet "Pista" purchased from Gene Portuesi's Cycle Shop in Detroit.
Vitus tubing (except for Columbus fork restored in 1984 from vintage Columbus tubing and Nervex crown in keeping with the bike).
Sugino crank, Campy Road pedals, original Plessier hubs and vintage late 50's Mavic rims.
Brooks Pro saddle, Cinelli stem and Crit bars, SR seat post, duPont Emron painted by Mike Gleason, Carrboro. NC. 1984.
Mike also built the fork.
Original owner was Bob Olson, Wolverine SC. I bought it from Mike Walden in the early 70's.
Bike weighs a trifle over 17 lbs. Tube set is very diminutive. Ornate Nervex lugs.
It could tell lots of stories. Your site is great.
