LA Brakeless: Gios Super Record Jul 20, 2010

As I mentioned in my last entry, the guys at LA Brakeless have this gorgeous 1970’s Gios track bike hanging in their shop. It sat in someone’s garage since the 70’s, untouched. The bike is pristine, with only a few paint scratches.

Check out some more photos below.

One of the nicest details on the bike is the Gios pantographed and drillium chainring.

The bike is full campy. Perfect for an Italian build.

Some say dust caps are gauche, but I don’t mind them.

More Campy goodness.

With a 3TTT and Cinelli Pista cockpit.

Wrapped with white bar tape.

… and a white Concor from the era.

Makes this Gios one of the nicest looking track bikes I saw all week. Finding one in such a good condition is rare. If you’re in the neighborhood, swing through and check it out. They’ve got a few gems hanging from the rafters.

    nice shots of a classic bike man! Last one I saw was in WAY worse condition:

  • Seriously?

    It’s not a Gios “Torino,” per se. The company is Gios, the bike is a Super Record, and the “Torino” simply refers to the region in Italy where Gios originates.

    Should Campagnolo track hubs come without those black dustcaps in the middle? I thought they are only present on road hubs
    My examples don’t feature then.
    Just asking, the bike is still a winner for me.

    Early Campy Pista and GS hubs had faux “grease ports”.
