Bianchi is the world’s oldest bicycle-making company still in existence, founded by Eduardo Bianchi in 1885, Milan, Italy. They pioneered the use of equal-sized wheels with pneumatic rubber tires in 1885, in addition to bicycles it produced motorcycles from 1897 to 1967. In 1955 the joint-venture Autobianchi was created together with Fiat and Pirelli for the manufacturing of cars – Autobianchi was subsequently sold to Fiat in 1969.
We are extremely proud to present Bianchi Campione del mondo from 1950s with original parts in an amazing condition. Campagnolo Gran Sport shifting system, Universal Extra brakes, ones that were used by many professional riders. Everything looks magnificent.
