Casati Goldline

Hello,

I finally decided to upload some photos of my Casati Goldline. I just cleaned it up today and snapped some quick pictures.

I got this frame and fork NOS a few years ago and decorated it with a fully Campagnolo Chorus group. I then got a hold of some 180mm record cranks.

The size is 63cm with a 60cm top tube.

Headset: Campagnolo Chorus 1"
Stem: 3TTT Panto Casati
Handlebars: Cinelli Giro 44
Tape: NOS Iscaselle
Shifters: Campagnolo Chorus 9spd
Wheels: Campagnolo Zonda 16 R
Hubs: Campagnolo Record
BB: Campagnolo Chorus
Cranks: 180mm Campagnolo Record
Pedals: What were NOS PD-7401
Rear Derailleur: Campagnolo Chorus 9spd
Front Derailleur: Campagnolo Chorus 9spd
Brakes: Campagnolo Chorus
Seatpost: Campagnolo Panto Casati
Saddle: Prologo Nago Pas
Housing: Jagwire Kevlar
Paint: Chromed fully with transparent red. The red is very fragile.

Sheldon Says:
An Italian name relatively new to the U.S. Some examples are extraordinarily nice. There is a fair number of S.R. examples floating around. Figure those are worth about $1,100. Oilier S.R. examples probably about $ 850. Not all Casati bikes are of the same quality apparently. Rumor has it that the examples coming in from the big mail-order company in Brooklyn New York are actually the best examples!


This frame is from the NY order.

I really enjoy the ride of this bike. Its actually my main ride. I used to ride it with matching Chorus hubs and 36h Mavic Open Pro SUP rims, I am really liking the Zonda's. I have another Columbus SPX Cramerotti 63cm but this one has a steeper seat tube, its the same as my 63cm Marinoni track bike.

The first three photos I took a wile back with my manual film, the rest ar quick shots I took today with a digital. Enjoy!

Here is the set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/5193597...7627858335366/

Super details on the bike, down to the world champion's stripes on the bar tape, stem and seat post.

that is simply incredible.
Everything about it is perfect. I LOVE The white tires with the silver rims, and the bar tape and everything. The components are choice. I wish there were more silvery bits on bikes today. Black stuff has it's place, but this bike is just gorgeous. am I gushing?


I've always lusted after steel Casatis. Some of their frames are aesthetically gross, but when they did something right, they sure did it right, and you sir, got one of the right ones!

Beautiful Sled ! ! ! ! ! ! !

I love classic Italian steel with chrome. Excellent build.

I think she would look better with black shoes though.

Does that stem actually point downward, or is that just the photo angle make it look that way?

Where did you get that sweet rainbow finishing tape for the bars. Man I would really like to get my hands on some of that.

Thanks for postin'

Very nice, love the bartape but please lose the white tires, they look like nurse shoes. Tan sidewalls would be pure class.
