For Sale: 49CM Viner special professional road bike

     It's spring again, and I like to post a couple nicer bikes for sale here to try and make room for incoming bikes. This is an excellent starter road racing bike for a more petite individual. Viner is an Italian company that makes and made high end road bikes. This is the Special Professional model, which was top end in its day. It has a 49 CM CTC seat tube, 52CM CTC top tube, and the stand over height is 30". i date this frame to around the mid to late 70's. Columbus tubing I assume as all the others I have seen also had Columbus tubing. The bike is very light weight. It  appears to have a replacement fork of high quality with fully sloping crown. The original would probablly have had a flat crown with stars cast  in the shoulders of the crown.
     It is equipped as follows:
  • Galli front and rear derailleurs, brakes, brake levers, cranks, shifters, and pedals.
  • Ofmega steel headset.
  • Specialized hubs laced to unknown double wall clincher rims which are 27".
  • 5 speed freewheel
  • Avocet touring saddle.
  • 3TTT stem 70mm extension.
     Some of the original decals are missing, and the paint is a nice light metallic blue. The lugs are nicely filed with cut out windows in pretty classic Italian styling. The bike needs to be tuned up and is not included in the price. The bike feels nice and solid and the frame and fork are in alignment. Price is $600.00. Please email at with any questions. Buyer pays shipping and handling and will have to be calculated depending on location.
