Champions such as Binda, Bartali, Coppi and Fondriest rode to their victories on Legnano bicycles. Fifteen Giro d'Italia, seven world championships and two Tour de France triumphs were achieved by Legnano riders. That is enough to enumerate Legnano amongst the most winning and prestigious brands of all time.
Founded in Milano, Legnano started manufacturing high-end racing bicycles around the 1920s under the lead of Emilio Bozzi - also owner of Frejus, who fell victim to the Brigade Rosse in the 1970s. The brand was subsequently sold to Bianchi before being acquired again by the Bozzi family.
Legnano racing bicycles are easily recognizable for their typical classic design, which actually is now virtued an integral iconic part of classic cycling for collectors around the globe. Their bikes were often either metallic green or blue.
What is maybe even more amazing than the beauty of this bike is its condition. This bicycle arrived at Steel Vintage Bikes in the original manufacture wrapping. It had never been completely unwrapped let alone built up before. And it stayed sound and complete over the years until we rescued it from a basement in Central Germany several months ago.
Now the bike is built, completely checked, adjusted and ready to be ridden.
A marvelous, shiny piece of cycling history.
