Made by L.Ranzini. A very small frame maker of: 54, Via Rembrandt, Milano; with little known about them. I have own only seen one other Ranzini bicycle which was a rare racing bicycle from c.1950 fitted with a first pattern Campagnolo 'Cambio Corsa' derailleur gear.
This roadster bicycle dates from the 1930's. Very light and of exceptional quality for the age and built with good quality components. FB hubs with wing nuts for quick release, alloy rims, Mercurio leather saddle, Ranzini engraved cranks and alloy mudguards, ( with the rear made to take a tool roll or rain cape etc). Universal alloy brake callipers and integral brake levers within the handlebars. Oily rag and in original finish; it has been through my workshop having had a sympathetic overhaul. During which it was fitted with new cream tyres, inner tubes, new salmon coloured alloy bodied brake blocks and brand new inner cables.
Currently fitted with no grips as these were missing when I acquired it. Due to the Italian oversize diameter of the handlebars tubing, I did not fit replacements, as I only have UK spec period grips.
The frame number is stamped in the rear axle drop out on the left side. The is: 00. Maybe this was Mr L. Ranzinis' own go to work bicycle.
