PANTO SEASON

January 1, 2012

I recently received these stunning images of a Viner Special Professional from Brian Stanwyck of Viner UK. The bike belongs to a friend of his, Ray Gibbs, who picked up this immaculate original in Italy via eBay. It appears to be a mid to late 70s version, pearlescent white, resplendent with Campag Super Record, and beautiful, detailed pantographing. A very rare cherry coloured leather Campagnolo Electa inflatable saddle provides the rider support. The Electa saddle sported a thin inflatable tube under the leather cover which could be inflated to the rider’s desired comfort. If you look carefully you can see the presta valve just poking out from under the nose of the saddle. This was pumped up using the supplied rubber bulb.

All in all a stunning way to start a new year.
