Boeris' history page
The origins of Boeris date
back to 1927, when Angelo Boeris transformed what had been a spare
parts business into a new company named Ciclosport. He then went on to
patent a "change of speed derailment of chain to bike " and the
"clamping chuck LIGHTNING", to quickly and securely
attach a racing rear wheel.
In the following years, the company grew to become an important
supplier in the region.
In 1959, Lorenzo joined his father Angelo, and along with the Ciclosport brand, the Boeris brand was born, associated with
the production of racing bicycles. The secret of their success was
to rely on highly qualified people for the specific job. An
example: in Turin in the mid-1960s, the famous brand Frejus
closed, they being the maker of team bikes for champions like
Ferdi Kubler, Hugo Koblet, Alfredo Martini and Pinin Graglia.
Boeris hired two important figures who had been important
technical contributors to Frejus, Censin Barengo and Pino Valle.
The company progressed to produce 16,000 bicycles a year, and included
a special Racing
Boeris big debut into the world of competition was in the 1970s
with the collaboration of GS Fiat, a great team of amateurs led
by that great master of cycling, Pinin Graglia, and then by Italo
Zilioli . In those years, Rossi's Fiat was a winning team with members
being called up to the national team.
Successes continued with GS and SC Lancia Brunero Cirie with
members such as Nardello and Garzelli .
Their success in amateur racing included joining with Finauto, and
team manager Citracca brought the European championship to
Boeris in Athens with the outstanding Giovanni Visconti.
