The owner of Biascagne Cicli‘s latest creation initially wanted something that reflected the livery of a Ducati 1199 Panigale. While the shimmering gold paint on the bike he received may not even be a stock Ducati colour, both bikes proudly wear the tagline: ‘Made in Italy’.
The frame used for the build is a Carerra Podium, a brand formed in 1989 by a partnership that included the manager of the Carerra Jeams pro cycling team — which was enjoying significant success on the circuit with riders such as Chiapucci, Stepehen Roche and a young Marco Pantani.
Italian components have been used, where possible: Modolo, Gipiemme, Gimondi cranks and a Concor saddle. Perhaps the most beautiful accessory however, is the Saint-Ex moniker — it’s named in honor of the aristocrat French writer, poet and pioneering aviator: Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
