Stucchi Poster

I have not heard of Stucchi bicycles before, but I came across this poster on the interweb tonight and tried to do some research. I found only one photo of an actual Stucchi bike (it was yellow a yellow single speed). Classic Rendezvous says:

"Stucchi were known for their high end town bikes and only made a small amount of racers. They fielded a team in the late 40s for the Giro and the Tour. Yellow was the company color.
Family descendants play a role in organising recent Eroica's in Gaole Tuscanny."

Here is all Classic Rendezvous' got (click the link).

Now they seem best known for posters of their product; I found a lot of places that would sell re-prints of the posters on the net, but only one bike photo.

It seems that the advertising has eclipsed the product
in this case. Nice poster, though.

  1. Never heard of the bike - darn fine ice cream if you're ever in Ann Arbor, or at one of the other stores
