Notes:

The date is an estimate, likely accurate within a year or two.  The specification did not change significantly during the late 1950s.

The Gran Premio was Legnano’s second tier racing bicycle behind the slightly lighter and slightly better equipped Roma Olimpiade.  Nevertheless much of the equipment was the same and it was a very respectable racing bicycle.
