Classic and Vintage Bicycles: What's it Worth? Appraisals and Inquiries - Red Bianchi road bike
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I picked up a red bianchi today and I am wondering how much it would fetch. No rust, will replace cables, tape, tires and tubes. Everything looks like it will shine up very nicely once the dust and grime comes off...basically a garage queen with a flat tire. I live in a somewhat hot market for older bikes...Vancouver.

Hello Narhay Welcome to the forums. How much did you pay for it? depending on your location once you invest $50+ on parts and you time to fix it up you may not make much.
A pic would help with ID but it sounds like maybe a Sport SS from '84. depending on overall condition you might get $150 if it is in great shape and few nicks in the paint.

Sounds like a lower-end Bianchi. Post some pictures and we can give you a better idea what it's worth.
But he's also in Vancouver and it says "Bianchi" on it......that's worth an extra $75-100....
Pictures as requested.

Paint looks excellent. Around here, that bike could bring $200. Even though I would never pay that much for it.
"Somewhat hot market"
Ha. That's an understatement. In Vancouver, I'd probably ask $300 for that bike. Most other areas 200-250.
You can buy a Raleigh or Apollo bike here, half rusted and two flat tires for $200, I am hoping this one fetches a bit more.
The subject bicycle appears to be a 1984 Bianchi Bici II, original price $350 CDN. The components are a good match. I'm assuming the tubing label states "Hi manganese" as opposed to "Hi magnesium"?
