Only think makes me doubt it is all the Columbo's I have seen have short point lugs, these are much longer. Who knows what was in the parts box that day at the factory though !
Not top end model doesn't have the Italian flag on top tube drive side and it doesn't have race number hanger on toptube near the headtube
Any interest here for my Concorde Giro, Columbus Brain, fillet brazed road frame before i make a sales thread and the inevitable split happens?
57cm top tube centre to centre
59cm seat tube centre to top.
Columbus minimal carbon fork.
Chris King No threadset. Black sotto voce
Shimano Ultegra R8000 Groupset 50/34
I was thinking £650 for the lot with the FSA Wing compact handlebars wrapped in lizard skins 3.2 bar tape and a Thomson steerer shim. Just needs wheels...
oh and a stem.
Mind if I ask what rims they are? Look nice and deep.

Ik heb op mijn 15e verjaardag van mijn ouders een concorde aquila gekregen .
Mijn vader had hem gekocht in België.
In de plaats Antwerpen bij de firma express
Dat was in 1982 .
Ik heb er wedstrijden op gereden.
Tot ver in 1998 ongeveer.
Omdat de concorde zo lekker reed.
Later ben ik er mee gaan trainen omdat ik te veel waarde aan deze fiets ging hangen.
Tot op een dag ik ontdekte dat de achter vork gescheurd was ..
Dit was het signaal om hem te restaureren.
Het frame is door de maker zelf .
Dus de firma ciocc hersteld in volle glorie.
Alleen helaas hadden ze de eerste transfers niet.
Ik heb hem terug gebouwd zoals in 1982 .
En iedere rit die ik er mee maak .
Kom ik weer vrolijk thuis .
I love my concorde aquila.

Nice one Rogier 👍 Truly poetic write-up
Nice one Rogier but maybe use Google Translator for the UK members (there's quite a lot of them around here). 😁
Perhaps Rogier translates this whole website to dutch. I know I do the same with a niche french fixie site. Translate it to english though
Are lopro's still en vogue?
A few weeks ago I 'accidently' bought this Concorde Capo Melo. The seller adressed it as a steel bike but actually it is aluminium. Meanwhile bars, seatpost, saddle and cranks have been replaced and it needed some maintenance.
After the Festive 500 ended last December, it was time for a thorough cleaning ... The wheels have been replaced by Campagnolo Calima and the C9 chain is fitted with a SRAM power link. For tires, my choice fell on the Continental Classic Grand Prix. Cockpit features a simple Edge 25
Sorry if this has already been answered somewhere else but does anyone know anything about the Concorde Freccia Racing bicycles?
