1914 Bianchi Military Folding Bicycle ‘Model 1912’ (World War 1)

Modello Militaire Brevattato

‘Tipo per Trupa’ (Solid-Tyre model for Troops)

20″ Frame

24″ Wheels with solid tyres

The WW1 era Bianchi military bicycle is a rare bicycle. This one has had a repair to the front fork. The frame is otherwise sound. Also the wheels need re-spoking. It is rideable, but really it is more suitable for display purposes (and is priced accordingly).
