Benotto Pista Modelo 1700

If you are one of those persons who can watch before and after restoration videos on YouTube or Facebook for hours, this might be up your alley!

Here we got a Benotto modello 1700 ‘amateur’ from the 70s. Stored in a basement in Holland for god knows how many years, it was covered in a sort of wax. Everything cleaned up absolutely mint. Have a look and enjoy the photo set before and after

Before

After

we cleaned everything extensively with a water based degreaser, steel wool with WD40, soap, brake cleaner and the whole frames super thin paint job got hand polished after

The modelo 1700 sticker got re-glued, parts were ultrasonically cleaned, a fresh reupholstered cinelli saddle and some rather unique wooden wheels

    Have always loved Benotto classic colour scheme. Just something beautifully correct about it.
