Frejus Campione del Mondo 1964

Frejus is a historic Italian racing bicycle brand originally founded by Emmo Gelfi in Turin in 1896. The brand is named after the ancient Roman name for the town of Fréjus in southern France. By the 1930s, Frejus was a leading manufacturer of racing bicycles, building bikes for well-known racers such as Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali. In the 1950s, the brand expanded to the United States and became popular there as well. Frejus racing bicycles were prized for their high quality and innovative technologies. They often featured a striking red, white and green paint job and had a sleek, classic aesthetic. However, the Frejus brand struggled with the decline of the Italian bicycle industry in the 1960s and was eventually acquired by Japanese company Miyata in 1989. Miyata continued to produce Frejus racing bicycles for some time before finally ceasing production.
The Frejus Campione del Mondo was a racing bicycle model from the Italian brand Frejus, produced in the 1950s and 1960s. The name translates as "world champion" and was given in reference to the successes of Italian racers in world championships. The racing bicycle was known for its high quality and elegant, classic lines. It was one of Frejus' top models and was designed for use in racing and for demanding touring. The model was produced in limited numbers and is now highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. It is an important part of the history of Italian cycling and an example of the high quality and beautiful design that Frejus racing bicycles were known for.
At the beginning of the 1960s, Campagnolo's competitors caught up with the supposed lead in technology and innovation, which is why Tullio Campagnolo was under pressure to revise his outdated GranSport gear system. The result was the Campagnolo Record, which was the first derailleur to combine the names Campagnolo and Record. It also had an improved derailleur cage and offset derailleur wheels, which ensured a more constant chain spacing. However, this technical overhaul was already standard at the time with Simplex, Huret and Gian Robert, for example, which is why the group was initially a disappointment and only became more popular over time.
