BICYCLES OF ITALY

BILL'S TORPADO LUXE - INTRODUCTION

Torpado bicycles were manufactured in Italy and imported into Canada, by Baggio Cycle Sport, a Montreal based company.  In the late sixties, and early seventies, Torpado road bicycles were considered to be one of the better bicycles, that one could purchase, in or around Thunder Bay.  And, there must have been a good supply of these old Italian bicycles.  I have found several old Torpados, most of which are now in new homes, saved from the hunger of the Thunder Dump.

The nicest of all the Torpados, I have owned was built to spec, for a fellow who lives in Eastern Canada (at least east of Thunder Bay, where I live most of the year).  I cannot recall how Bill got my name, but I do remember his emailing me and expressing an interest, in the Torpado.  It is probable that I had the Torpado listed, as a frame set for auction on Ebay.  I really can't recall.

But, I do remember that the frame set was sold, and the buyer commissioned me to build the bicycle up.  Part of the build would include some agreed on upgrades, as Bill's build progressed.
