Hi all,you are in for an original and by now unimaginable-to-find Bianchi Tour De France from 1952, the only year of production for this model. Serial Number 421749. Bike is 100% original down to the very last screw, including paint and decals. Bike had a couple of owner. I will have to be the 4th. 3rd owner told me that bike was sooner or later touched up here and there from previous owner with original Bianchi celeste paint. Parts are all original from 1952, cables included. Bike has been used for real with all of the signs of time visible that make it a very sexy, real and classy vintage rare collector piece. To the best of my knowledge it has been ridden at Italian L’Eroica also.
