Wilier Triestina Cromovelato

In 1906, aside the banks of the Brenta river in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, Pietro Dal Molin opened a small workshop to manufacture bicycles. Wilier frames were crafted by hand and built using only the finest components. It wasn’t long before Pietro’s skill for producing exquisite bicycles made his products infinitely desirable amongst the residents of Bassano del Grappa... and now known all over the world!! Wilier’s name is a patriotic statement, referring to the claim W l’Italia LIbera E Redenta. (Meaning: Long live Italy, free and redeemed). When it comes to classic bicycles, there are very few models which stick out as much as the Wilier Triestina does, undoubtedly one of the finest Italian cycles ever manufactured. Over the years the bicycle called 'tipo la triestina' became the flagship of the Italian brand and a very sought-after bicycle among collectors. Its paintwork is certainly the highlight: called "Ramata" - Italian for copper-plated: it consists of a thin varnish over chromed tubes which creates a unique translucent paint job, also referred to as cromovelato paint.
