hi, i picked up a bianchi bike at a garage sale
i was wondering if anyone knows what it is worth
the frame is made of high manganese steel and made with oji original frame tubes
the shifters are Suntour
there is "piaggio" sticker on frame
colour is dark blue
look at http://www.velo-retro.com/list.html. they offer a catalog of the old team bianchi piaggio (piaggio is the name of the producer of the legendary "vespa", the motorcycle

i checked out that link
it only offers catalogues and you have to buy them
It sounds like a 1980s Japanese Bianchi to me.

this bike was made in japan and not italy
it doesn't have compagnalo parts
the derailleurs are suntour which is cheap
it feels quite heavy

i checked out some values on ebay and found a lot of different bianchi frames
some sold for $300-$400 but i think they were bikes made in italy and they did not look like the bike i have
