The Frejus is one of the oldest and most glorious Italian brands. Founded in Turin in 1896 by Elmo Guelfi, with the workshops located in Piazza dello Statuto, it has always stood out for its quality production and sporting orientation. The company gained notoriety in the 1930s by supplying the bike to Gino Bartali for his first Giro d’Italia in 1935. In 1948 the company will move from its original location to a new, modern factory in Via Buenos Aires in Turin. Later the brand was bought by Legnano and finally in the 70s by Bianchi. In his Palmares Frejus can boast 2 Giri d’Italia, 4 World Championships and 2 Olympic laurels as well as many other successes. They have raced among others for Frejus Bartali, Cinelli, Messina, Kubler, Nencini.
The bike presented was restored in the past. We have carried out a conservative restoration by revising it completely and making it pedalable. It mounts Balilla brakes marked Frejus, as well as the hubs and the seat clamp. Brooks saddle. Beautiful Grimpeur brake levers. Wooden rims.
