For Sale: 1951 Bianchi Aquilotto

I had previously written about a beautiful Bianchi Aquilotto that was part of a display here in Verona. One of these would be the ultimate in style, and energy conservation, for tooling around town in.
Blog reader Pietro has contacted me to say that he has a 1951 Bianchi Aquilotto for sale. Pietro's email address is, if you are interested,

The following details, and photos above, were provided by Pietro:

Manufacturer: Bianchi
Year: 1951
Model: Aquilotto
Engine displacement: 45,3 cc two stroke
Power: 0,8 CV
Transmission: by roller pressure on the rear tire (and/or pedaling)
Weight: 32 kg

The bike is perfectly restored, the engine is refurbished and just run in, all is working and adjusted. It is perfect collector's piece.
The requested price is 3100 Euro, negotiable.


  1. Wow, I didn't know they ventured into motorcycles too.

  2. Haha, perfect restoration, but it looks like someone inserted one of the cotter pins upside down; look how the cranks are not at 180 from each other!
