centro stile alfa romeo and compagnia ducale have designed the IFD 4C bicycle, paying tribute to fluid lines and styling cues from the alfa romeo 4C roadster. built in italy by experienced craftsmen in limited edition, the lightweight bike frame references a styled ’4′; the section of the frame recalls the letter ‘C’ and introduces a carbon-fiber semi-tube section, the same as the frame used for the alfa romeo 4C. profiles of the refined elements run towards the junctions of the handlebar, of the bottom bracket and of the saddle creating structural strong points connected by steel tie rods, exalting the 6.9 kilogram material building technique.
