A bit of History regarding the bike;
Paganini was the shop brand of one of the absolute top class traditional bicycle shops of Belgium. Plum Ghent is actually one of the most renowned bike shops in the world. They became famous, selling their Plum Vainqueur racing bikes. But when Italian steel dominated the market, they established the brand Paganini.These frames were built by Billato in Italy to really high standard. Billato was contract builder and they were also responsible for the later Ciöcc; Concorde and Conti Frames.The great quality of the frame is partly due to the material and partly due to the craftsmanship. The tubing is nothing less than Columbus' SLX tubing, which with their helical inner reinforcements were the most popular material for professional road bicycles during the late 1980s and early 1990s.Fine, engraved lugs are nicely thinned and number holder for serious racing has been brazed on.
The frameset is Columbus SLX with Campagnolo dropouts and brazed on fitment for the race number plate. There is lots of detailed pantograph on the lugs bottom bracket fork crowns and top tube with the beautiful Italian flag please see photos. There is also braze on fitting to catch the chain when removing the rear wheel and the cable for the rear derailleur runs through the chain stay. Internal routed rear brake cable via the top tube.
