Scapin Road Bike…

(better pics sometime after the rain lets up haha)

I haven’t written much about this bike yet, I’m not sure why that is, maybe it’s because I’m uncertain about a number of facts. Namely the year it was built and the model designation.

Scapin is a small Italian firm that still hand builds gorgeous bikes, actually in Italy! Novel I know 😉

Anyhow, right now as it sits: it’s a 51cm frame, de-badged Fulcrum Racing 7 wheels with a campy freehub body, Thomson Masterpiece 27.2 Seatpost, Thomson X2 90mm Stem, a vintage Chris King “no-name” NoThreadSetâ„¢ Rasta headset, Columbus Tusk 1 1/8″ Fork, 40cm FSA Wing Pro Compact Handlebars, Vintage Salsa Rasta skewers and seat binder, and a yellow Selle SMP TRK Ladies saddle. Also, the headset spacers are nowhere near finalized, these are my rough draft spacers.

Much more to come,
-peter

    I purchased what looks like a mid 80s Scapin and I am in the process of rebuilding it. Nice workmanship. I tried emailing the factory asking for some information that would help me identify the year. Received a one line response, “Sorry, We cannot help you”. I suspect I am going to have to learn some Italian if I am going to learn more about the bike.

      those 80’s Scapin’s are something else! very nice bulid quality indeed 🙂

      hahaha, that sounds about right, they seem to be a pretty small company, i do know they have a facebook page in english, you might be able to get some help through there?

    I wish I could see Dick Caley’s 80s Scapin…I purchased an old bike that had a paint job, and the only bike frame that looks remotely similar is the scapin. I am trying to find more similar bikes. Honestly, this frame I picked up looks like Peter’s but with downtube shifter mounts. What are your serial numbers on the bikes?

      Hmmm, I’ll get you the VIN later today Ricky, they’re cool bikes, I really need to finish it one of these days.
