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 521147) is fully equipped with great parts, as the original Campagnolo Gran Sport gearing, Bianchi crankset, Bianchi hubs and Sheffield pedals, etc.
The bike underwent a complete check in our workshop and is ready to be ridden.
A must-have for collectors and Bianchi fans. A bicycle with an unmistakable livery.
