You are in for a very exclusive. It is rare indeed to see so finely preserved an example of a C38, and this might be your chance to own a museum piece and exceptional work of ART. One of the best things about this beauty is SOLID build, light weight, best components in the market and the wonderful, wonderful speed using the magic of ratios! Up for consideration is this 1958 C38 Bertin Pista, featuring. Full DB Reynolds 531 frameset with round track style fork blades and.
Freshly painted in two pack base coat/clear coat after being striped to bare metal. Chrome is pronounced, with very few small blemishes. Comes with an original Stronglight competition headset (NOS).Also rare correct period 1st generation Campagnolo French Pista Bottom bracket set. No dents, drills or damage in frame set. Bike has been used on Velodrome ONLY. To the best of my knowledge this bike is among a very few handful remained alive. You'd be hard pressed to find a similar'time capsule' C38 in the same condition.
A true collector's piece. The earliest steel frames from the 50s, 60s and 70s had pressed forks and stay ends. Higher quality frame sets had forged ends from that period onwards until it became general practice throughout the entire line by the late 70s. Track frames had more upright (73 degree) angles, a shorter wheelbase (39 inches/99 cm) and a double plate fork crown surmounting round diameter track style forks. Reversed slotted track ends were standard on both the C38 and C56 models.Lugs were initially pressed steel with Nervex lugs being popular. Gradually, in what appeared to be running changes, simpler lugs such as Dubois and Prugnat appeared with a gradual change to microfusion steel lugs and forged crowns by the 1980s. Tubesets were fairly consistent over the classic period with Vitus Vitus 971 (Durifort/888, 172, 971), Reynolds (501,531, 531 SL/Pro) and Columbus (Aelle, SL) being the suppliers for the majorityAelle of Bertins road and track bicycles. The specifications which follow each model are for the 1970s bicycles produced by Bertin. Unique frame set from the owner of the Flying Wheel website. All restoration work on the frame was done by him. The components were assembled by Damon S. Owner of Nomad Cycle, Woodside Ave.
Damon has over 40 years of experience as a bicycle mechanic. He has restored over 200 bikes in the past ten years alone. He specializes in the restoration of vintage and bespoke bicycles.
It took me 3 months of hard research to shop for the top components in the market. Everything you see on the bike (except for Cinelli's handlebars) was bought NOS (New Old Stock).
