Legnano 1946-1948

Museum of Cycling Gino Bartali

Room: Bicicletta


This Legnano compared to most official bicycles is different in the attachment of the pipes to the frame, where a finish of the in the "curl" joint areas can be seen. The authenticity of this bicycle has been questioned, but traces of this type of attachment can also be found in the official Legnano catalog of the period. It mounts the Campagnolo rear derailleur with the two rods but does not have the multiplier derailleur , which was mounted only in the Tour de France from stage 6 until the arrival in Paris. It was the aspiration of a lot of guys , it was sold in a lot of units .
