Bianchi Tonale 175 1961

Offered for sale we have an excellent restored condition Bianchi Tonale 175 first registered in the UK from new in 1961, complete with the operators manual and sporting original frame & engine numbers this is possibly the ultimate lightweight from the 60’s!

Founded in the late 1890s, Bianchi made little impact outside Italy before WW2 despite an innovative approach which saw a team of unitary construction, twin-overhead-cam 350s entered in the 1926 Isle of Man TT, the design having first appeared in 1924. In the post-war period the company’s road range consisted mainly of lightweights, the mainstay of production being 175cc models like the Sandro Colombo-designed Tonale. Styled as only the Italians know how and featuring a unitary construction overhead-cam engine, duplex loop frame and full-width alloy hubs, the Tonale must have seemed light years in advance of its British contemporaries.
