Bianchi as the oldest bike manufacturer still in business is an indisputable icon. Over a hundred years, it produced almost all possible types and level of bikes, from city cruisers to skinny racing machines, from track bikes to MTBs. So it is no surprise, that there were no children's bikes missing.
This classic Bianchi branded children city bike stems from 1970s and it is lovely. Instead of more traditional colors, it is painted in bright orange color, something what could be appealing to kids. And it is not just suited to the children's eyes, it is perfectly rideable as well. The parts are scaled down with tiny crank arms, and comfortable riding position behind the "condorino" style handlebars. Something what could appreciate the parents for a change is the chainguard, which will help to keep the trousers clean. Or at least free from chain dirt.
If you want your kids actually enjoy riding a vintage bike, then this Bianchi is a way to go.
