1979 Austro Daimler Vent Noir II

This is my 1979 Austro Daimler Vent Noir II.  This bike has what Austro Daimler called a "smoked chrome" finish and is wearing its original decals.  The Vent Noir II originally came with a Campagnolo Nuovo Gran Sport group.  This bike was completely upgraded to a circa 1979 Campagnolo Nuovo Record group and is in virtually new condition.  Stay tuned for other Austro Daimlers including an NOS Vent Noir with black Dura Ace and an ultra light weight Ultima Superleicht project.

  1. Gorgeous. I've just started collecting ADs. I have two lower-end, but still beautiful bikes: A 1978 Inter-10 with original catalog and receipt, and a 1982 Alpina in excellent condition. I'm salivating over your pristine Vent Noirs!
