Featuring rear suspension and sprung front forks, as well as being a folding machine, this is an advanced bicycle design. The Italians were early adopters of military bicycles. The elite Italian corps who used them, the Bersaglieri (‘bicycle mounted infantry’), were respected everywhere in the world.

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)
