Ooooo Bei Corridori Italiani

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Came across Ray Dobbins site today which is packed full of the most beautifully classic, old school Italian racing bikes. I love finding sites like this where you can geek off for an hour or so instead of working through that ever growing to do list!

Ray’s site has a simple homemade feel, which is part of it’s charm, but dig a little deeper and WOW. The collection of Italian racing bikes span across the 1970’s and 80’s each one in immaculate showroom condition and all have been lovingly shot and catalogued by Ray.

My personal favourite is 1971-72 Colnago Super (58c-c) but if I’m honest I wouldn’t kick any of them out of bed for eating biscuits! So if you’ve got lots of work on that you really can’t be bothered with head over and geek off.
