Description

When it comes to the golden age of cycling, the Bianchi Folgore is undoubtedly one of the most iconic racing bicycles ever manufactured. Indissolubly connected with the epic victories of Fausto Coppi at the 1946 Milano-Sanremo and at the 1947 Giro d'Italia, the Folgore appeared in the Bianchi catalogue between 1940 and 1949, until the Bianchi Folgorissimo was subsequently introduced – which differed basically for a seat lug with clamping on the back side.


Designed and manufactured for serious competition, the Bianchi Folgore is a lightweight frameset: the whole bike weighs roughly 10.2kg with pedals, bidon holder, steel stem, steel seatpost and heavy leather saddle.
It illustrates particularly refined details like the headtube with integrated headset (common to all Bianchi racing bikes of that era), chromed lugs and fork crown, and bottom bracket with integrated oiler.


According to the serial number 928840 this Bianchi Folgore really dates back to the 1940s. The bicycle underwent no heavy refurbishment, though the headbadge seems to be replaced. Frame and fork still have their original plating!.


Regarding the components, this Bianchi Folgore is equipped with typical parts, such as a Campagnolo Cambio Corsa gearing system, Bianchi crankset, Universal brakes, Simple aluminium rims and an Italian leather saddle. Simply the best of everything.


A vintage bicycle with history and pedigree. Terrifically beautiful.
