1930, Taurus, Lautal 28 bicycle

1930 – Taurus, Lautal model, Touring Bicycle – Italy

Taurus was established in Milan by Vincenzo Fabbri in 1906, aiming to build high-quality cycles, using the best metals, alloys and components.
The “Lautal” name of the model (all aluminum) is clearly German-inspired. Besides, Taurus always gave the impression to draw inspiration from the German build quality; the clean styling though was purely Italian.

This model was surely intended for an elite audience, because the alloys used are lightweight, therefore expensive
