Early 1980s De Rosa Pista #71, built for the Alfa Romeo road team out of New York. This bike was owned by the former team manager for the Alfa Romeo team, and had stored it for the past 20+ years (as it was too small for him.) I have full-sized photos in my De Rosa Pista gallery.

Love De Rosas

Beautiful frame, but I'm confused about the fork. It's a pista, but it has a hole in the fork for a brake. Has the fork been replaced?

Love De Rosas

Definitely a pista fork. The owner drilled a caliper hole.


The bike was built as a winter training frame for the Alfa Romeo/De Rosa road team that ran out of NY in the late 70s/early 80s. The fork was drilled by De Rosa from the factory (it's chromed inside the bolt hole, wasn't done by the original owner.) Bike was running a 44x21 setup when I picked it up -- for spin training -- and had a Campagnolo Super Record caliper mounted with a single brake lever.

My other De Rosa has an identical fork, but without the drilled hole.
