BIANCHI Specialissima, Campagnolo Record 1st gen, 62cm, all original (1965) – SOLD

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. Throughout Bianchi’s 130-year history, the Specialissima name has represented the pinnacle of the Italian legend’s road machine line-up. Each and every Bianchi bicycle is not only the most perfect machine from a technical point of view, but also an expression of the latest innovation

The Specialissima was born in 1956, when the Bianchi team already had quite an award collection and Fausto Coppi – whose name would forever be connected to the company – already had several Giro d’Italia and Tour de France victories. Throughout the 1960s, the Specialissima – replacing the famous “Campione del Mondo” model, similar in the frame profile but different in the components – it was build with Campagnolo Record 1st gen groupset which was ahead of the time back in the days. The Bianchi Specialissima is defined by a superlative that shamelessly boasts a desire to win, to dominate the dreams of cyclists and fans of the professional cycling.

In years 1960-1964, Bianchi returned to the pro peloton as main sponsor of the BIANCHI Team. The team was continuation of the BIANCHI Pirelli Team. The entire team was using Bianchi Specialissima bikes, exactly the same as we are presenting here.
