Mezzatesta custom steel road frameset - 56cm - Reynolds 753
Like many enthusiasts and collectors, I love it when a somewhat unknown builder just absolutely excels at their craft. This frame, built just outside Pittsburgh, PA by Tony Mezzatesta, is a prime example - fantastic lugwork, gorgeous ornate details, and an overall lovely end product. I feel like the photos tell the story here, which makes my job easier ;) Reynolds 753 tubing, nicely sculpted lugs, scalloped seatstay caps, and a seat cluster that will make you drool! Great shape overall, with a small area of surface corrosion on the BB shell from a paint chip, and some small chips and touch-ups otherwise. Truly quite clean, though. 1" threadless steerer.
Seat tube: 55.5cm ctc, 57cm ctt / Top tube: 56.5cm
