Montante for Maserati

Happen to be a cyclist that is also a Maserati owner? The grand prize in the 2013 Maserati Trofeo World Series will be this Montante for Maserati 8CTF. If you don't own a Maserati don't despair as you can purchase one from; a total of 200 will be made.

The Maserati 8CTF is considered to be one of the most glorious racing cars of all time, with the legendary victories of the ‘Boyle Special’ at Indianapolis in 1939 and 1940.The bicycle pays homage to the Maserati 8CTF in numerous small details, from the extensive use of chrome, to the frame that is painted in the same wine-red as the Indianapolis-winning car of 1940. Likewise the saddle, handlebars and loops of the pedals are covered in leather the same color as the driver’s seat of the racing car.

  1. Even if I was lucky enough to own a Maserati I don't think this bike is to my taste. Too old school.
    This is more like it (affordable):

  2. Gorgeous - except for the silly disc brake...makes no sense to me on a bike with so many retro touches, says Larry.
