Here again we have some disputed claims of invention and historians will probably never be able to identify the exact moment of invention.
For a while some had claimed that Leonardo Da Vinci invented the bicycle based on a sketch found in his Codex Atlanticus.
After a visit to the Italian Legend Bicycles Museum at Pesaro on the Adriatic coast in Italy I realised that our Italian submissions were spread all over the website with no common location.
As a result we have created this new section called Italian Classics which will pull all of the available material together and give easier access to anyone trying to research what information we have on Italian bikes and their components.
However, this sketch was later determined to be a forgery, though many historical accounts written before this forgery was discovered still credit Da Vinci as the inventor of the bicycle.
There were a few "pre-bicycles" invented before the appearance of what one would recognize as a bicycle.
US manufacturer, Schwinn, made bikes with ape hanger handle bars from the early sixties; they were nowhere near as well packaged as the Chopper though.
In this market until the Chopper came on the scene, Raleigh played catch-up.
Many of the advertisements are no longer politically correct but reflect thinking at that time.

Wishful thinking by their marketing department I suppose.
The truth is that the folding bike has been around for considerably longer than one might imagine and most claims of being the first are erroneous.
