Great pics and wonderful bikes.

This is a 1908 Bianchi fixed gear bike with front brake. Note that the brake is a wooden pad that presses directly downward on the front tire!





Or how about this 1914 BSA (I think). It is said to have completed Paris-Brest-Paris in 1921 and L'Eroica in 2008. That's Fausto Coppi's 50's Bianchi in the backgound.




A very modern looking 1916 Stucchi with a 3 speed flip flop hub!
