To see the first CHESINI bike one has to go back to the time between the two world wars.
In 1925 when, from the skilful hands of Gelmino Chesini, founder of the prestigious brand, the first innovative bike was created. The first model of a race bike, named CHESINI BICIPRECISION is forged in that year, in the workshop of Nesente, a small village near Verona.
In the post war period, the activities grow quickly and, in 1947, Gelmino Chesini acquires a bike factory, CICLI VALLETTI, and moves the headquarters of CHESINI BIKES to Via San Paolo. in Verona.
The sixties are the years of the Italian economic boom that brought a big change in people mobility. Cars were now more affordable and popular and started to became a status symbol.. And so, to further capitalize on the deep knowledge in precision mechanics and on the experience in the production of distribution mechanisms Chesini starts a service center activity for SINGER sewing machines.
However CHESINI never stops researching innovative solutions for its bikes. In 1963 a Chesini bike wins the Solo 100 km World Amateur Championship and in 1964 and 1965 CHESINI also wins the Team 100 km World Amateur Championships.
Soon the collateral activities were abandoned, choosing to follow the passion for the production of the highest quality bikes.
