Regina, famed maker of high-performance chains and freewheels, got its start in 1919 in the northern Italian town of Merate. Merate is just south of Lake Lecco and north of Milan.

The company began by making chains and freewheels for bicycles and between the two World Wars began producing moped and motorcycle chains as well.

In the 1950s Regina moved into making industrial chains and after exiting the bicycle business sometime in the 1990s the firm has continued to expand and grow its large industrial chain production

Anyone building a high performance, Campagnolo-equipped bike during the 1960s, '70s and '80s knew that a Regina chain and freewheel simply had to be used. It was in the ether that Regina products worked best with Campagnolo drive-trains. While there were other fine drivetrain products, Regina chains and freewheels justifiably remain linked to the golden age of Italian bike making.

Important note about older Regina freewheel body threading: Please look at the back of the freewheel.

If it is stamped "FI" it is English-threaded
If it is stamped "FF" it is French-threaded
If there is no such stamp, it is Italian-threaded.

  • This freewheel is 30mm wide
  • It is made with both Silver and Oro sprockets, leading us to believe it was custom-made.

The back of the freewheel. Two things to note: It is stamped "FF", meaning the body is French-threaded. Also the back sprocket is silver, rather than gold.
