"The standard of build & finish is simply superb"

“I picked up my frame on Wednesday 11th.

I’m absolutely delighted with the same – the standard of build & finish is simply superb – as indeed was the way it was packed for shipment – Many many thanks.

I’m now still chasing New Old Stock Campag equipment – my fall back is to take parts off my Blue Raleigh – as I intend to get this resprayed with the rear chain stays opened to 130mm from 126mm & chromed to match your frame.

Once again please tell your frame builders and finishers how pleased I am to have this fabulous frame.”

“I am really enjoying the Marosticana that Officina Battaglin built for me: beauty, grace, responsiveness, and speed in one package. I get a lot of compliments on it when riding here in Raleigh, North Carolina. While stopped at a light here in town recently, one rider crossed the intersection just to have a closer look…

“Hello Alessandro from chilly New York!    As beautiful as your online pictures are, they really do injustice to your frames.   Finally seeing my Portofino in person was a surreal experience.  I was simply dumbfounded.  The depth of the chromovelato color, the perfect chrome and clear coat, the lettering that did some typographer proud, even the…
