Giovanni Losa (known as Vanni) was a master artisan frame-builder from Milan, responsible for some of the finest classic steel frames around, building frames as a contractor for other famous companies – in particular the Cinelli Super Corsa from the 1990s until 2008 and the PEP Magni/ICS frames. A lovely newly restored example of these is now show on our site.
When Losa made bikes that were to bear his own name (lugs decorated with his distinctive “V” (for Vanni) pantograph) they are always an extra special piece of artisan frame building.
Our frame is a custom made masterpiece. With the rear braking cable running in a groove inside the top tube and the seat tube crimped in for a shorter wheelbase and a better responding bike.
