This is Juna 1!

This beautiful folding bike was purchased at the “Ricicletta“ workshop in Lugano.

It is a French "Motoconfort" folding bike produced around 1975.

Unfortunately, the previous owners and the story of how and why it was brought to Switzerland are unknown!

This is Juna 2!

 

This is an extraordinary kind of bicycle. It can be lengthened and shortened. It was found in the suburbs of Milan in the care of a racing bicycle collector.

 

Its history is shrouded in mystery, as it was stored for 30 years in a warehouse along with a whole lot of other objects and was discovered recently during a move.

 

It could be a prototype made by a bicycle company in Milan, known as Stucchi, but we are not certain.

 

We did a lot of research and contacted several experts, but unfortunately we found no information regarding this strange bicycle.

 

The best thing is the locking mechanism that allows the bike to be lenghtened and shortened with ease, lending itself to be conveniently carried on any means of transport.

This is Juna 3!

Juna 3 is a bicycle produced by Bianchi in 1968 and it is still in excellent condition.

It is 45 years old, and it had been left unused for many years in a garage near Varese, in Italy.

It has a sturdy metal frame and is equipped with drum brakes.

This bicycle can be separated into two parts by simply turning a screw placed above the central axis.

It is easy and comfortable to transport and the bicycle occupies very little space.
