BRAND: LEGNANO "Modello 38", 40s
"Bruciata" Dannata on Legnano "Mod.38" frame late 1940s. Frame, fork and headset are the only elements present at the time of discovery, original bottom bracket crankset but assembled at the time. No less than 2 layers of paint covered the original paintwork in very poor condition, which is why it was decided, through the processing that defines this type, to elevate the metal and its tonal characteristic to a livery for this Dannata. The very dark metal typical of old pre-war bikes defines the aesthetics of this bicycle and marks the way for all the elements that go to define it, from the rims to the handlebars, passing through the vintage Brooks saddle. The only contrasting element are the earth-coloured tyres.
Original frame, fork and headset, bottom bracket set, crankset and typical Legnano saddle bolt original but from another bike.
700x35c tyres on vintage, oxidised 'R' type rims, with vintage front hub with grease nipple. Vintage "C" handlebar (or alternative) without knobs. Vintage racing-type Brooks saddle (model to be defined). One-speed counter-pedal with 18-tooth pinion (or alternative).
