Whoa! Props to John Prolly for spotting this:
CIÖCC is reissuing the Mockba 80 Pista, a real old school classic lugged steel track bike and it looks GOOD! I'm stoked. And why hasn't any other Italian bike brand managed to get something as simple as this done before? Just a make a track bike like you used to do back in the days. No brakehole drillings, TIG welding, wacky compact geometry, ugly techno decals or other bullshit like that.
In fact, I don't know if this is a 'real' reissue or they just decided to build a bike like they used to do but who cares if it looks this nice. Columbus tubing, flat crown fork, Miche Xpress gruppo, San Marco Rolls saddle and so on. And the 999USD price is not bad at all.
Check out the specs in the 'Vintage' section of the CIÖCC Italy website.
