BRAND: UMBERTO DEI "Modello Superleggera", 1960
"Bruciata" Dannata type based on the 'Superleggera' model, Umberto Dei's house sports car, chassis dated 1960. What mainly differentiates this frame from the classic and more widespread Marca Oro, post-1935 called Imperiale, are the rear end not with a double tuning fork, the joints and the type of braking system (wire instead of rod), elements that are intended to emphasise lightness and sportiness compared to the above-mentioned models.
In a classic Dannata, the dark livery of the frame, with a few traces of the old chrome plating, relates well with the earth-coloured elements.
Original are the fork with headset, bottom bracket set with branded crankset, mudguards, seat tube and clamping screw. Dannata elements are the oxidised 28" sport rims on which 700x35c earth-coloured tyres are mounted, the Torino model handlebar with earth-coloured knobs and the honey-coloured Brooks B17 Classic saddle.
