Welcome to the first post in my Daily Drivers category. I aim to document Ferraroli bicycles seen in everyday, and sometimes also every day) use here in Switzerland. Apologies in advance for the photo quality, as it isn’t easy taking well lit, focused and composed pictures on a crowded, moving train at night.
This marked the first time I learned of the Simpatico model name. I have a bike without a model name sticker, but with the same tubing, lugs and fork. There is also a Grazioso road bike with the same basic features.
Since my frame has two serial numbers, indicating that the frame was brazed in Japan and finished in Switzerland, perhaps the two model names differentiate frames brazed in Switzerland from the imports? Next time I see this bike, I will try to get the serial number to learn more. Stay tuned!
