Bianchi folding bike
#1
I am a picker and just picked up a bianchi folding bike and would like to sell locally if possible. The bike is bright green and is in very restorable shape. The frame is free of corrosion and if I air the tires I'm sure she will roll. Just need to move her out, the man upstairs apparently chose me to rescue this one. Let me know if anyone has interest before I post her up on E-bay or craigslist. I can send additional pics and if you are close come over and take it for a ride if you are in Michigan!
Thanks,
Snow Monkey

Hello "Snow",

Just doing some searching when this post showed. I have an old Bianchi and was curious if it was similar to the bike you have/had? It's a Bianchi with Nealeco decals (or maybe the other way around). I've seen this same frame with slightly different features (chainguard, fenders, colors, decals). At least 4 different brand names. Not sure what company actually made them, but obviously the same maker branded by different retail companies. If you have any insight, I'd be happy to hear it. Sorry to resurrect an old post, but this was the only reference to a Bianchi folder. Thanks for your time and help.

Take care,
Jesper

PS. As a rider/rebuilder of vintage Italian race bikes, I would say that the workmanship is not of the same quality.

Cool. I had never seen Bianchi folding bike. Their signature turquoise road bikes is all that associates with this brand.

Have you learned something more about this one @Jesper ? Does it have Sturmey Archer hub?

Hi baller,
Sorry for delayed response, I work at a hospital and things are getting hectic; going on holiday here shortly to recharge and/or injure myself from planned recreational exploits.
My bike is a single speed hub, front and rear caliper brakes; although I have seen internally geared hub variants, but I don't know if they were S-A or some other make hub. I have also seen a derailleur fitted bike, but it was probably a modification; l believe it was an Atala badged variant. I know there are rear coaster brake variants as well.

Take care,
Jesper
