Mario and his track bike!

My friend Mario Thor had the patience to send me more photos of his bike, years after I built it.

For those who would like to see which model I'm referring to, here's the link to the article published in 2014 among the comments of the track bikes customers.

I refer to that brief article because at the time, Mario had also made a short video that you can find on the page, showing the track bike just assembled and placed on a stand in his house.

Looking at it today, it seems like it was just yesterday and it seemed like I had just talked to Mario a few days ago. Then I wondered: how will my Canadian Forgione do on the track?

Mario's track bike photographed outdoors while standing on a mobile stall I wrote to Mario who replied very politely:


Hi Vincenzo,

Nice to hear from you, I hope you are doing well.

I first want to apologize for not returning your email last time, I've been quite busy and things slip my mind quite easily...

also I want to say that I did see your latest website and it looks pretty good, everything is very professional! in that subject, I have also been working on an online business, check it out (

I will take pictures this weekend and send them to you.

take care, kind regards



And in fact, the response came a few days later with the photos that you see on this page.

Of course, I want to thank Mario for his kindness and availability and invite all my old customers to do the same by sending me their photos with Forgione bikes!
