This is my 1947 Italian steed

It comes with the infamous Campagnolo suicide shifter

Perfecting the skills to change gears with these shifters needs tons of practice

Always wonder how cyclist race with these in those days

I wants to leave her as she is, unrestored (love the patina)!

This is a 1957 or thereabouts Bianchi. What model it is is not completely clear. It was refinished in the 60s in Italy and some frame changes were made. The serial number is no longer legible. Components are perhaps original and are period correct.

Fully restored lug less frame and unique front stick shift derailleur, it also has a thin sloping fork crown. The frame work shows technology and craftsmanship in great advancement at that time. This bike is extremely light too.
