Model Showcase: Orbea Orca Gold Edition

Earlier this year Campagnolo released its 80th Anniversay groupset, in the limited edition Super Record.  If you’re willing to pay the price, Ebay has them starting at around $3,500.

Now Orbea has partnered with Campagnolo to release the Orca Gold edition in Japan, limited to just 30 copies.  Yup.  A gloss and matte naked carbon Orca frame, the Campy 80th Anniversary Super Record, and Bora carbon wheels with obligatory 80th anniversary decals just in case your riding buddies haven’t a clue.  And it’ll cost you over a million and a quarter….yen.  Or around $13,000 at today’s exchange rate.

  1. The owner of my local shop just bought a bike that he built back from a guy with a 50th Anniversary group set with 24k gold embellishments…for a steal. The set is in excellent condition and it’s absolutely beautiful.
