Carrera Corse

From one of my favourite daily blogs cycleexif.com an old post with this beautiful bike. A simply stunning racing bike.

From the website:

Piero’s Carrera Corse was constructed in the workshop of one Dario Pegoretti from Columbus SLX and is equipped with Campagnolo’s 1st Generation eight speed Record gruppo, which incorporated the last generation of the revered Delta brake set. This was the first range to feature Ergopower levers. The Carrera Jeans team included a young Marco Pantani from 1992 to 1996 whose contract required him to wear that infamous kit of Lycra printed with acid wash denim. Were they not the glory days of cycling couture?

Of course it has Delta brakes – so beautiful! More to come on those soon!
