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. They invented equal-sized wheels with pneumatic rubber tires in 1895, first bicycle ever featuring a cardan joint transmission in 1901 and front brake system in 1913.
When it comes to vintage bicycles, there a few things as iconic as the famous “Celeste Bianchi”. Indissolubly connected with the epic victories of Fausto Coppi and Felice Gimondi, the Bianchi paintwork has become a legend through the years
