A 1940 Bianchi Folgorissima for L'Eroica

Here is a beautiful bike...just perfect for L'Eroica. 1940 Bianchi Folgorissima with Campagnolo Cambio Corsa completely restored by Cyclart. Currently being sold on ebay (item 150374570453) with a starting amount of $5,750.00.

Details of the restoration of the bike: "All the rest of the components on this bike are period correct and in excellent condition. Assembly and refinishing was performed professionally by CyclArt and the bike can be inspected at our showroom in Vista, CA. The paint color is precisely matched the Celeste color of other old Bianchis with original paint. There have been considerable variations of the "official color" over the years. The finish and decals are not only authentically recreated as they were when new, but have been subtly "weathered" to simulate the appearance of a very well cared for original. Small scratches and staining give the character of an aged finish."
