This is a bike that you dont see everyday! The frame was built by Lino Messori of Modena Italy in 1984. Examples of his bikes are hard to come by as is information on the marque. Only about 150 bikes exhibiting his name were ever built! I acquired this bike as a frame and fork about 10 years ago. It languished in my bike room for several years before I decided to get it back into riding shape. In addition to the restoration work it has become a bit of a research project for me. I have some leads to follow and hope to be able to provide more information on the builder in the future.
