When it comes to vintage bicycles, there are few things as iconic as the famous "Bianchi Celeste". Forever associated with the epic victories of Fausto Coppi, the Bianchi paintwork has become a legend of cycling history.
Released in 1953 to celebrate Fausto Coppi's victory at the World Championship in Lugano, the Campione del Mondo (Italian for World Champion) was the top model of the Milanese brand and built as evolution of the Bianchi Tour de France. Unmistakable is certainly the lightweight frameset with integrated headset and chromed lugs.
This Bianchi Campione del Mondo (Frame No. B2454292) stems from the mid. 1950s and is fully equipped with great parts like Campagnolo Gran Sport gearing and shifting, Universal Extra brakes and Nisi tubular rims. It also sports many Bianchi branded parts like the beautiful crankset, high flange hubs, saddle the stem and bars combination and even the pedals!
There is always something special about Bianchi bikes from the old era, but to find a piece which is in original and such great condition is really rather difficult. With original equipment and also fully serviced in our workshop, this really is a dream bike.
For all celeste lovers and those who appreciate an all time classic.
ConditionUsed. In great original condition particularly rare for a bicycle from the 1950s. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The top tube has been professionally refurbished but other than that the paintwork and decals are original. All parts have been checked and are working fine

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
