I have a Bianchi folder as well. It is a generic "U" shaped folder. It feels like it is made of solid steel, but its just reallllllly heavy. The name that is on the chain guard says Milano, and there is a CA bike liscence from the '70's on it. Kinda cool. It had a sturmey archer 3 speed hub on it, but I swapped it to an aluminum bmx wheel with a coaster brake. Its a great bar bike/critical mass / midnight ridazz / throw it in the back of the car and forget about it kinda bike. The only problem was that the stock seat pin was way to short, so I had a local shop hack it in half and weld in a 10" steel extension. Works fine for me.
Oh, I paid $85 for it originally, sold it to a friend for $80, then he gave it back to me for free after putting on new tires and tubes. He got another bike, and this one was just sitting around. Good deal in my book.
