Galmozzi Pista

This is a fairly early Galmozzi, maybe late 1940s or early 1950s, judging by the hubs and crankset.

There has been a question of whether there were originally decals on this bike. First, it's chrome and transfers always peel. Secondly, so many of the Galmozzis wore other manufacturers livery we wouldn't know what the decals were anyway. We do know it was made by Galmozzi because he engraved his name on the head tube.






A really sweet bicycle.

You all be well, live with joy, and have a great 2014.

I'm amazed to see bare (lack of snow) pavements under that Galmozzi. Do you have an indoor velodrome close at hand?
