Casati Monza - 57x57
A nice classic frame with Campagnolo components from end 80s, early 90s made by Casati. An absolute fantastic road bike which I used for an extensive tour ended with a delightful smile.
These are only a few of the highlights of this Casati Massimo. A top-class road bike which left the factory in Monza (Italy). The lightweight frameset is made of Columbus Cromor tubes and sports a Casati chromed fork with pantographed crown. Regarding the parts, this racing machine is equipped with nothing less than Campagnolo Mirage parts. Campagnolo Delta rims, ITM stem, handlebar and seatpost. Selle San Marco Rolls leather saddle.
The bike has been fully serviced in my workshop and is ready to ride.
Used, but in good condition.
Refurbished with new parts (Tires, Handlebar tape, chain).
No dents, no cracks or bends, only some scratches on the frameset.
All parts have been checked and work absolutely fine. Extensive Test run with an entirely satisfactory result.

About the Manufacturer
Welcome to the Casati Family
Casati may not be among the most recognized Italian brands, but they’ve been around for 93 years. Founded by Pietro Casati, winner of the 1913 Tour of Lombardy, the company has remained in the family throughout its existence, and is now run by Massimo and Luca, Pietro’s grandsons. 1991 and 1992 World Road Champion Gianni Bugno is among the more contemporary champions to have begun their careers in the saddle of a custom-built Casati.
Handmade is not just a trendy buzzword, but a way of life at Cicli Casati. Their current output is about 50% steel and 50% carbon frames. Casati’s carbon frames do not come out of an Asian mold, but are fully custom for size, geometry and colors, and are crafted in Casati’s Monza facility, just outside of Milan. Their steel frames run the gamut of production styles and tubesets, from chrome-lugged vintage to modern fillet-brazed Columbus XCR stainless steel. Every step of the fabrication process, from bike fitting to paint and finish, is done in-house in Monza.
One thing you won’t find among Casati’s offerings is an anachronistic blend of trends, styles or materials. “Our vintage frames are made exactly how they were in the 1970s or 1980s,” says Rudi Weber, Casati’s German/Italian Marketing Director. By contrast, the modern stainless steel and carbon offerings are suitably advanced and cutting-edge, with era-appropriate paint and graphics.
All families, like brands, must expand to survive, and Massimo and Luca have ensured that their father’s and grandfather’s innovation and craftsmanship have global relevance in today’s marketplace. According to Weber, about 10% of Casati’s market share is in the U.S., and markets like Asia and Australia are both growing rapidly. He cautions, however, that you won’t ever be buying a mass-produced Casati off the racks of your global bike superstore, just as mama can’t invite everyone over to the house for dinner.
“People who buy Casati are not going for mainstream,” says Weber. But if you think you’re ready to experience the Casati difference and join the family.
