Subject: [CR] '59 Bianchi Milano 3-spd

Our shop rec'd a '59 Bianchi Milano 3-spd as a donation and I'm trying to get more info. on it. Unfortunately the top tube/ head-tube is bent quite badly, so I'm trying to figure out if it's worth getting straightened or should we leave it as is and just hang it on the wall.

Haven't been able to find any history on the Milano from this era (online anyway) and Bianchi USA doesn't even offer a way to contact them via their web site; any info. would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance,
