Ancora, 1939, racing bicycle

Ancora, Racing bicycle, 1939, Italy

Ancora was an important Milan-based bicycle company that also produced motorcycles (that raced and won too: famous was the victory at the well-known “Circuito del Lario”).

There is little information available on this company: we know that the brand and the workshop was later bought by Umberto Dei of Milano.

In 1939 Dei decided to stop the production of “Ancora” brand bicycles.
