Vintage Bianchi Bicycles

Bianchi is the oldest bicycle manufacturer in the world.  Started in 1885 by Edoardo Bianchi in Milan, Italy.  He was only 21 years old when he started the business in his small shop.  He thought bicycles should have the same size tires in front and back.  Seems he was right.

Bianchi sponsored Giovanni Tommasello who would go on to win the Grand Prix De Paris sprint competition in 1899.  They would continue to sponsor great riders and their popularity grew.  In 1935 they were making 70,000 bicycles a year. 

They are still making great bicycles.

What is the Bianchi color?

Bianchi Celeste

The color most associated with Bianchi is Celeste. The color is different depending on the time period. It started as a pale sky blue and is sometimes a turquoise.

I’ll be looking for more great vintage Bianchi bikes to add.
