Bianchi Spring-Frame Military Folding Bicycle ‘Model 1912′
with Solid Tyres
‘Modello Militare Brevettato (Tipo per Truppa)’
The history of Bianchi is also an essential part of the history of Italy. The Bersaglieri were already well-established as cycle troops. Before WWI began, Bianchi, with production figures of 45,000 bicycles, 1,500 motorcycles and 1,000 cars per year, was asked to design and produce military vehicles. The ‘Model 1912′ was the result.
