Bianchi vs BMV

I remember seeing one or two of those way,way back. I always thought that they were sub-500 Fiats.

Right hand drive. Which side is the brake pedal on?

In the early 60's BMW produced a similar model, the 700. It had an air cooled 2 cylinder 700cc rear mounted motorcycle engine that produced 30 hp.



A friend who was into BMW motorcycles had one of these.

It was a collaboration between Bianchi, Fiat, and Perelli.
I think Jay Leno said that it was a sub-500 Fiat

Lovely. Needs to be painted Celeste.

Lesson for today's car makers - fun and stylish does not have to mean huge.

Maybe there is/was a topic on brands shared between cars and bicycles. Peugeot and Humber come immediately to mind, probably many others.
