I had a panto graphed Battaglin Cinelli stem in my parts box for years and I was always on the lookout for one so when this came up on CL for a very good price, I jumped at it.

The colour scheme is from Steve Roche's triple-winning Battaglin and I guess the company figured it would be smart to copy it for all of their models that year.

Roche had an incredible year in 1987:

Giro d'Italia (1987) - Stephen Roche
Tour de France (1987) - Stephen Roche
World Championships - Road (1987) - Stephen Roche

The frame has tonnes of pantographings all over it and I will take photos of them one of these days...

People who friended this bike RollingThunder, cannonhugodale, b_rad, carbon fiber15, birdo, klaus werkel, -S_xOnWheels-, knapprobert, OndrejP_SK, willoughby, per.k
