Ochsner International has been an important part of the American professional frame and component business for decades. The firm has been the importer for Eddy Merckx, Colnago, Campagnolo, Assos, DT and nearly every other important prestige name in cycling.
In the 1980s the company imported Ochsner-branded framesets made in Switzerland that displayed superb workmanship. We believe they were made for Oschsner in the small Royal shop, but cannot state that fact with metaphysical certainty.

As noted above, this is available as a frameset or complete bike. The Campagnolo Victory equipment kit on the bike is also available separately.
