Lugged steel frames are becoming harder to find, especially frames this nice. This classic Ciocc Designer '84 Microf C. 40 lugged steel frame and fork are in very good condition, and would make a wonderful addition to any bike stable. Ciocc framesets have a reputation for being great riders and wonderful craftsmanship, and this frame represents the Ciocc name with honor.

This frame measures 54cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the center of the top tube, with a 54.5cm top tube and a 132mm headtube. The paint scheme is blood red with bright white decals outlined in black. The rear seat and chain stays and fork are chromed, and the top of the seat stay is scalloped. The frame was built in Italy of legendary high-end Columbus SLX steel tubing, which over the years has been my favorite tubeset of any I have ridden.

This Ciocc has two sets of water bottle bosses, braze-on front derailleur tab and downtube shifter bosses and pump peg, rear brake cable housing routed on the top of the top tube, and Campagnolo horizontal rear dropouts (with adjusting screws) that measure 126mm wide. The Ciocc fork is chromed and has Campy dropouts, with a 1" threaded steerer that measures 172mm. The Ciocc design is cut out of the bottom bracket shell and is engraved on the brake bridge and fork crown. The Ciocc name is pantographed in the scalloped top of the seat stay and on the sloping fork crown.

This bike is in very good condition, but it is a used bike that has been ridden. There are very few small paint chips that have been well touched up. The chrome is in good condition, with some very light peppering and loss of bright shine just from age and from having been ridden. The seat tube is very clean and clear and all of the tubes have been treated with Boeshield T9 rust prevention spray.

I haven't taken any pics of the Ciocc yet, but hope to do so soon. $475 professionally packed, shipped,and insured to the lower 48 United States.
