Yes, a 1978 — I am the sole and original owner.

53 CM, with a TTT De Rosa pantograph Stem.
It is the “Professional” or “Prestige“ model, and was almost certainly made by Ugo himself, of Columbus SL tubing.

SUPERB Condition — All ORIGINAL.

COMPONENTS...
• Edco gold Headset.
• TTT HandleBar.
• Galli gold Crankset with Roller-Bearing Bottom-Bracket.
• Galli gold Brake-Set.
• Galli gold Shift Levers.
• Campagnolo Super Record Seatpost.
• Campagnolo Nuovo Record Front Derailleur.
• Campagnolo Nuovo Record Rear Derailleur.
• Campagnolo Pedals.
• Regina Chain, blue.
• Cinelli gold Toe-Clips, with blue leather Straps.
• Rolls brown leather Saddle, gold-anodized metal rear.
• Silca Pump, blue.
• Carbon fiber Bottle Cage, with original De Rosa Bottle.
• CHOICE OF WHEELSETS! All are lightweight Tubular Rims with Top-Quality Hubs,
(e.g.- Mavic/Campagnolo... w/varying 6-speed Freewheel Clusters.)
• New spare tubular Tires also available.

I built this bicycle in 1980, having bought the frame in 1979, from Visentin Bicycles in Oyster Bay.
I carefully chose from among the finest Italian components (except the Swiss Edco headset,)
deciding on using as many gold-anodized parts as were available.
Gold so well-complemented the Ugo Blue frame and its yellow decaling.

The handling and response are amazing, as you’d expect from De Rosa, who built bikes for Eddy Merckx.
Unfortunately, I am no longer able to ride very much.

I can arrange shipping from a trusted local pro bike shop.
