1987 Atala Reparto Corse 58cm
Suntour Cyclone front and rear derailleurs
Sugino Super Mighty Cranks 52/48 Chainring
This bike has been restored by me over the last two years. Mechanically it is in flawless condition. All durables (brake pads, tires, tubes, and bar tape) have been replaced with high quality modern equivalents of what would have come on this Italian racing machine.
Atala was to Italy what Schwinn was to Germany. Not the modern day Scwinn of China, but the well produced quality bicycle of the 1980's. Atala tried to export their bicycles to America for a couple years but they didn't sell as well as the cheaper Japanese frames of the day. This is why arguably Atala is more rare than its Italian counterparts - Pinarello, Ciocc, and Conalgo.
