C.B.T. Italia (Construction Bicycles Tardivo) was founded in the mid-1950’s by Giovanni Tardivo, a regional wholesaler and distributor for bicycle and motorcycle parts.

Towards the beginning of the 1970’s, Giovanni’s first son, Guido, joined C.B.T. Italia and expanded the company’s marketplace to include the production of road/racing bicycles and frames.

By the beginning of the 1980’s, Giovanni’s second son, Bruno, joined the company. By this time, C.B.T. Italia had shifted the core of its business primarily on the production and distribution of road bicycle frames.
During those years steel was the only material used for bicycle frames, but C.B.T. Italia was already able to distinguish its products by introducing black chrome fork ends and crushed seat tubes to obtain a shorter chain stay.

This frame is an example of this company’s great contribution to golden era of frame building, beautiful lugs and pantos combined with this clean white colour and black chrome in the back makes this frame an absolutely unique piece of art.

The bicycle has been build up as a display bike but never been ridden.
