Product Description

Frame: 1990s De Rosa Replica 73 (this is an authentic De Rosa, they made 3 "Replica" series frames for 57, 65, and 73, 100 of each were made so they are somewhat rare.)

Color: Molteni Orange Replica 73

Material: Columbus tubing

Serial: FB 770 under the bottom bracket

Brake type: Center-Mount rim brake.

Size: Actual measurements taken by hand are approximate and are as follows: 560mm actual top tube center to center. 560mm center of bottom bracket to center of top tube. 575mm center of bottom bracket to top of seat tube. Head tube 148mm. 415mm chainstay length. If other measurements or take-offs are needed, please feel free to ask. 

Condition: This frame is in near new condition. This frame has not previously been built but has been stored, shipped, and handled, so it is not quite "new in box" condition, but close. No cracks or dents were identified through a thorough visual inspection. The cosmetic imperfections to highlight include: a decal imperfection on  the head tube shown in pic #10. Frame condition supporting the prior owner and CyclingUpgrades' "never-built" claim include that the paint on the front and rear brake mounts is undisturbed, and the dropouts have no significant clamp marks (we did lightly mount wheels to the frame for picture #12.) It appears the frame has had a bottom bracket installed at some point due to the paint chips at the edge of the bottom bracket shell (see pics #5 & 6).

Groupset compatibility: Frame can be setup for eTap or mechanical groupsets. This frame is not compatible with Di2, or EPS setups. Mechanical cable guide below the bottom bracket intact. 

Bottom bracket: Italian threaded bottom bracket shell type. No bottom bracket for currently installed. We have a handful of lightly used basic bottom brackets on hand, let us know what you need and we can try to ship the frame with the right bottom bracket installed. Additionally, CyclingUpgrades is a Wheels Manufacturing, and a Ceramicspeed Authorized Dealer, if you prefer to have the frame setup with a certain Wheels Manufacturing, or Ceramicspeed bottom bracket we can add and install it at an additional cost before shipping - message with inquiries/requests. 

Steerer length: N/A - this frame/fork uses a quill style stem.

Seatpost: 27.2mm. No seatpost included.

Dropout Spacing: QR x 100mm front, QR x 130mm rear.

Weight: 2643 grams as pictured with frame hardware, etc. 

What's included: Frame, and fork. A plastic temporary headset was put on the frame for pictures, but is not included.
