  • Description

Giovanni ("Vanni") Pettenella, a great Italian track rider, born in Caprino Veronese he won gold and silver medals at the Tokyo Olympics in 1964. He pioneered the use of aero tubesets for which he received a patent. At the time the tubes all had to be hand formed. He goes on to say while many copied his innovations only Ernesto Colnago paid him any royalties.

Set includes 2 x down tube, 1 x seat tube, 2 x top tube, 1 x lower seat tube.

Outdoor life without lacquer can be up to 3 years, but all printed decals should be lacquered over for a professional and permanent finish. Failure to apply the lacquer can result in premature wear to the print. Comprehensive instructions are available on my web site details of which will accompany the decals.

POWDER COATING:
I would advise against using these decals on a frame that has been powder coated unless this has been applied by a professional company who understand cycle frames and not the type who simply do 'iron gates'. Powder coating is without doubt a very tough finish, but can be difficult to adhere to, especially matt finishes. Best to apply to a stove enamelled frame, by an experienced frame sprayer.
