Rauler Strada

Rauler Strada

Founded by the Gozzi brothers, Raul and Reclus, in the late 70s, the Rauler name is said to be a merger between Raul and the first two letters of Ernesto (Colnago). Rauler were originally contracted by Colnago to build frames under Ernesto’s marque until they parted ways in 1984, and were also responsible for Colnago’s pantography.

It’s also rumored that early Raulers were Ernesto’s inspiration to create his Arabesque frames. There were a few Rauler mountain bike frames produced as well, the paint on which would rival a Fat Chance. This Rauler strada is owned by Riccio (Vintageriders on flickr) and is in immaculate original condition, including that mottled camouflage Cinelli tape.

Big thanks to Riccio, you can check out more detail shots of his Rauler on his flickr stream.
