Bianchi Rekord 748

Edoardo Bianchi is arguably one of the most important figures in the world of cycling. Born in 1865 in the heart of Milan, he grew up in an orphanage in the city center, where he enjoyed a wonderful education and, incredibly, was introduced to mechanical engineering. Shortly before his 20th birthday in 1885, Edoardo went into business for himself and opened his own workshop. His motto was simple and clear: use the best components and offer the best possible product, which is why you can be sure that old Bianchi bicycles are of the highest quality. Everyone has seen the characteristic blue-green hue that is synonymous with Bianchi bicycles. The correct name for this color is Celeste. This word translated from Italian into English means "heavenly" or "blue". Many brands on the market try to have instantly recognizable logos, but nothing attracts as much attention as the striking Celeste color.
The Bianchi Rekord 748 model is a vintage racing bike that was popular in the 1980s and was available for purchase in the 1970s. It was made with a high-quality steel frame and mostly features Bianchi/Campagnolo components. Bianchi is known for its meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail. The Rekord 748 frame could feature special Bianchi logos, decorations and paintwork that are typical of the brand. The paintwork was available in celeste, but also in other colors such as silver.
While the Campagnolo Record from 1963 was a bitter disappointment for many racing drivers, the Campagnolo Nuovo Record group and especially the rear derailleur were groundbreaking. For over 16 years, this group was the non-plus-ultra in competitive racing and drove one racing driver after another to victory. Its strengths include its lightness, very stable construction and good workmanship. The group's front derailleur in particular occupies an important place in cultural history. Since then, it was no longer just a bicycle component, but was suddenly seen as a piece of jewelry, which was an absolute luxury product due to its enormous price.
