Last week I picked up what I think is a 1984 Bianchi Alloro from a garage sale. It is in excellent condition with only a few scratches but no real issues except that it needs a good cleaning. It says "Made in Italy" on the seat tube and it has a Columbus Tretubi sticker on the downtube. The serial number on the seat lug read 3686 and 4A. It appears to be 100% original (I swapped out the tires before I took the pics because the Wolber tires were pretty dried out) with Campagnolo downtube shifters, Nuovo Grand Prix deraillers, Modelo brakes, Bianchi crankset, Mavic rims, bottle cage, Selle leather Bianchi saddle and even a matching celeste green frame pump. The frame seems to fit me perfectly - it measure about 53.5 cm between the crank bolt and the top of the top tube.
I have searched and searched online for more info on this bike - and I think it is a mid level Italian made Columbus tubed racing bike? I can't find it in any of the catalogs I found online though? I am still deciding if I should ride it or flip it - what do you think it is worth here in Minneapolis?
Sorry if you read my other post about the Bianchi vs. my current 92 Paramount Series 7. ;-)
Here are a few cell phone pics...
