BIANCHI Corsa SL ”Specialissima” (mid 1980s) – SOLD

Description

Bianchi is the world’s oldest bicycle-making company still in existence, founded in 1885 by Eduardo Bianchi in Milan, Italy.

No doubt, Bianchi is the pioneer of bicycle development since the beginning:

-In 1885 Bianchi  pioneered the use of equal-sized wheels with pneumatic rubber tires;

-Edoardo Bianchi designed first lady bike in 1895 and it was made for Queen Margaret;

-The Bianchi reputation began when the company sponsored Giovanni Tommasello, the winner of the Grand Prix de Paris in 1899, which evolves into Tour de France;

-Bianchi presented the first bicycle ever featuring a cardan joint transmission in 1901;

-They invented the front brake system in 1913;

-In 1914 Bianchi was a famous and reputed manufacturer: in just one year, production settled on extraordinary figures: 45.000 bicycles, 1.500 motorbikes and 1000 cars;

-In 1915, Bianchi produced a bike for the Army, equipped with wide-section tyres, folding frame and suspensions on both wheels.

 

Throughout Bianchi’s 130-year history, the Specialissima name has represented the pinnacle of the Italian legend’s road machine line-up. The ”Specialissima” was introduced in late 1950s as successor of famous ”Campione del mondo” model and remains Bianchi’s top model till today. The Corsa model was basically the same as Specialissima, still high-end bike, but with less bling.

Proudly presenting this Bianchi’s masterpiece, the ” Corsa SL ” (frame no.794), a top level bike from early/mid 1980s thanks to special Bianchi vintage bike register. Extraordinary details of lugs and Columbus SL tubing, high-end Campagnolo Super Record groupset with famous NiSi Laser rims, Cinelli cockpit, all in excellent condition sounds like a dream for any bike collector or vintage bike lover.
