Description

When it comes to the golden age of cycling, the Bianchi Folgore is undoubtedly one of the most icon 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 Folgorissima was subsequently introduced – this differs basically for a seat lug with clamping on the back side.

 

Designed and manufactured for serious competition, the Bianchi Folgore is a lightweight frameset and illustrates particularly refined details like the headtube with integrated headset (common to all Bianchi racing bikes of that era), chromed lugs and fork crown, seat-tube mounted chain oiler and bottom bracket with integrated oiler.

 

According to the serial number 803774 this Bianchi Folgore dates approximately back to mid 40s. The bicycle underwent a professional refurbishment to be brought back to its former glory.

Regarding the components, this Bianchi Folgore is equipped with parts such as a Campagnolo Cambio Corsa gearing system, Bianchi crankset, stem and bars, Universal brakes, Brooks leather saddle or Sheffield pedals.

A vintage bicycle with history and pedigree. Terrifically beautiful.
