Abstract This invention provides a bearing structure of a continuously variable transmission holding bearing members of a primary shaft and asecondary shaft in regular positions against the tensile force of a belt, keeping an appropriate belt alignment, and improving the durability of the continuously variable transmission. A rotation shift mechanism 6 is stored in a housing member 8 fixed in a casing 1, an input end of a primary shaft 3 is connected to the rotation shift mechanism 6, the primary shaft 3 is rotatably supported to the housing member 8 via a bearing member 11, and radial positioning means 1b, 8b are provided between the housing member 8 and the easing 1 so as to be positioned on the outer circumference of the bearing member 11, so that the tensile force of the belt 17 is directly received by the positioning means 1b, 8b.
