Tour de France

Would love to know what were the winning bikes during the C/V era-I can find the men but not the machines. For example I'd guess (hope) a PX 10 won during that period but would love to see pix of the rides, wouldn't you?

I'm always most impressed by the pictures from the early TDF and Giro d'Italia where you see the dudes with the Cambio Corsa shifting and the extra tires/tubes slung around their shoulders.

Do a Google Image search for Coppi or Bartoli and you'll find lots of pics of the men and the machines.
