Vintage Components - Galli bottom brackets and bottom bracket parts

Galli bottom bracket parts on this page: Sport 118mm bottom bracket spindle | Sport Italian cup set | Sport English adjustable cup w/lock ring

The Galli firm started making bike parts in the 1930s, but really hit the big time in the 1980s. The Galli component line extended from the semi-pro level (Sport) to the most exotic titanium super-lightweight parts. Top pros such as Herman van Springel raced on Galli parts. But like so many European firms, they were unable to withstand the onslaught of Asian production. Galli closed its doors in 1989.
