Gios Super Record 1978:

At the Milan Show in September 2003, Gios exhibited this limited edition steel frameset.  Titled SUPER RECORD 1978-1983 GIOS VINTAGE  this one is size 60cm No.10 of 100 produced.

When confirming the order with sig.Alfredo Gios, I checked the seat post size, width of rear ends etc and he said “It is built for current 9/10 speed as no-one has the old parts to build it up with”  I confirmed that I had complete gruppos new and boxed at which he gave a wry grin.

  • The rear changer is stamped Patent 78
  • Chainwheels, bolts and dustcaps are all marked Patent
  • Globe logo brake lever hoods
  • Super Record 2 bolt seatpost
  • Super Record Pista pedals are fitted as they appear to have been more popular from old photos-or did they cut the quills off Strada? 
  • The rims are NISI.  I used these instead of Mavic solely because Nisi were based in Turin along with Gios 
  • The Cinelli 1/R stem has the oval logo on the top and ‘Cinelli’ front cap; the 63/40 bars have the early badging 
  • Bottle cage is TA alloy with Brooklyn bottle
  • Regina ORO 6speed freewheel and ORO chain
  • Christophe toeclips and Binda straps

These photographs have been supplied by CycleSport magazine in which the machine was featured May 2004 issue.  This followed a previous article on Roger De Vlaeminck.  I have since been loaned an original chainring from which I have had a Nuovo Record ring and seatpost engraved with the Gt symbol.

I took the above ring and subsequently several other items to Ken Short at Wimborne Engraving.  He has been in business for over 30 years and is quite happy to do this type of work.  Ken advises that he can copy from a photograph if necessary although having a metal product to work from is preferable.  I found his prices to be very reasonable and he is willing to mail items if you pay the costs of course.  He has to make a master initially and has the Gt logo along with Campa shield where I had a worn logo freshened up on 151 cranks.  If you feel you do not want someone else 'borrowing your pattern', you may wish to take the job elsewhere.
