BRAND: WANDER Sport, 40s
"Conservata" Dannata on 1940s Wander frame. A Parma-based brand founded by the sons of the famous framebuilder Emilio Garlatti. Extremely well-preserved in its lvrea, the black colour that distinguishes it contrasts with the carefully crafted chrome details of the fork head, headset and fork and carriage ends. Another contrasting colour is the typical terra dannata of the saddle, tyres and handlebars. Many are the mechanical/aesthetic elements that characterise the Dannata philosophy, defined by the assembly of off-brand components, when the original ones are missing, chosen for aesthetic and temporal coherence that allow for a unique bike.
The fork with headset, Wander branded collar and seat tube are original. Everything else is from Damnation: the Bianchi handlebars handmade modified with cord handles, the bottom bracket and crankset with non-radial spokes, the oxidised sport rims.
