Battered and Beautiful.

I mentioned the craftmanship on this 1945 Stucchi briefly last week but I couldn’t help giving it a post all of it’s own, so here it is, in all of it’s glory. Such detail in all aspects of this frameset are seldom seen nowadays and the headtube alone on this lime green monster is enough excuse for me to go see my bank manager.

Stucchi Tipo S.S.V. Italy, 1945

Road bike frameset from Stucchi, Milano with steel framework #93516 finished in lime green with cream. Includes Magistroni cottered bottom bracket, unmarked steel headset and original brake and shift cables.


Max Air.

A friend of a work colleague passed by the store last weekend on this: A Rad as hell 1985 Skyway Streetbeat.
RAD 011
They said at the time: Forget the ordinary with Street Beat, Skyway’s new full-on freestyle machine. It’s light enough to grab max air, and strong enough to beat the street. “Max Air” ! how times have changed, you would sound a complete idiot spouting that lingo today for sure.

Peep all of the excessive tubing though compared to todays basic utilitarian ‘Freestyle’ bikes… Nowadays BMX bikes look like scooters with pedals on and this thing looks like a spaceship with wheels on… I love it.
