This guy sells very rare soviet bikes and make some fake reto bikes from other models. Somewhen he made Moscow-80 bike frame (very rare only 40 of them were built) from some old Cinelli.
What about “Rus”… It is Samoylov bike. Samoylov was one of the greatest soviet frame builders. He made his frames from Columbus tubes and Colnago parts.
I’ve seen many of his frames. The Rossin bikes have stamped lugs and cutout BB shells. The De Rosa frames have heart cutouts in the lugs and stamped seat stays. Why (and how) go through all the trouble to fake that? I’ve seen some of his frames sell for 1,000-1,300. Yes they are re-finished with not-so-good decals (cyclomondo) but the chrome, fake lugs, stamping, paint and decals would almost cost that much. How is that profitable if they are indeed fakes?
