1950 La Birlina Soresina 56cm With Full Campagnolo Cambio Corsa

⭕ I searched long and hard for a Cambio Corsa equipped bike that was rideable and not a museum piece but wasnt some rusted out hulk, either. I wanted something with fenders that I could ride anytime and I wanted something pretty original. I wanted a Galmozziish crown, chrome plating and lugs that didnt look like they were cut with a butter knife.

I imported this one from Italy myself. Its a 1950s Capredoni La Birlina built in Soresina, Italy. Not a lot of info out there, even tapping into the Classic Rendezvous folks.

Size is 56 square, which is a pretty hard to find size for a vintage CC-equipped bike.
HT (not including cups) = 15cm
ST (c-c) = 56cm
TT = 56cm
Saddle height in pics is appx 73cm

I taped the bars and added some Velox plugs laying around. The brakes look to be Universal 51 and the inside of the rear locknut on the hub is dated 1950.Certainly the highlight of the bike is the Campagnolo Cambio Corsa, complete with pie plate, hubs, levers, etc. The bars are not original, as 3TTT didnt exist before the 1960s. Stem is an AVA. Brake levers are unknown brand and vintage, but certainly not period correct. I have no idea what brand the umbrella peg is. Unknown seat. Nisi rims and unknown tubulars. Everything rolls and runs smoothly. Headset is a little notchy when turned to the far extremes, but smooth when riding and turning. Maybe an adjustment? The brake pads were changed to a more modern compound so riding is now safe. Id change the tires and/or re-glue if you are planning on riding LEroica.

The frame and fork appear to be chrome plated throughout. There are remnants of decals on the seat tube area that is chromed, as well as on the fenders. There is some pitting on the chrome and some paint chips, scratches and scrapes; but nothing heinous. Its over 66 years old, after all.
Interestingly, the rear chainstays are notched to allow the hub to roll more forward than just the dropouts. Its like riding a piece of history and you are sure to get questions wherever you go.

I will ship if necessary. Bike will be professionally packed by my local shop. I can calculate packing and shipping charges if you give me your zip code. CONUS only please.
