George Baudin's 1950s Bianco

This is Baudin's back-up bike and is a virtual clone to that featured in
The Competition Bicycle: A Photographic History
by Jan Heine, photographs by Jean-Pierre PradèresAvailable through VBP:
As Baudin was also a trackie, he used steel AVA bars/stem, a twin plate fork crown with round blades and a steerer tube clamp even on the road.
Rumor has it, Bianco taught Alex Singer the art of frame building.
Bike will soon be listed on EBAY.

Scott, that's a neat bike and in very good shape. You know Bianco is supposedly the builder who taught Alex Singer.
