The frame is a custom Portofino built to the owner’s specifications.
It has been finished in a pink cromovelato that recalls Giovanni Battaglin’s Giro victory.
The owner went for a full Italian build with a 12-speed Campagnolo Record groupset, Campagnolo Bora WTO wheels, and Deda Elementi carbon parts.
After this short introduction, the assembly will begin.
You’ll see the frame inspection made by Giovanni Battaglin in person.
