    Vintage Bianchi

    Hey everyone,
    I'm looking at this Bianchi on CL:

    http://denver.craigslist.org/bik/1374970319.html

    I emailed the seller and asked what model it was and he said the only decals said "Paggio" and "Limited".

    I did a quick search and found that this might be one of the Japanese made Bianchis. Can anyone provide insight and tell me what I should offer for this bike (or if it's even worth the time)?

    Thanks for any input, Ant

    If it is ready to ride, it is well worth $150 for an end user. A decent Japanese built bike with alloy parts and a cromoly frame around here will get at least $175. Better ones (lighter weight, better components, nicer finish) can get $200 to $225.

    nice looking bike. chromo frame and fork nice luggs. a little elbow grease and you should have a real looker. I think judging from the color it is a '82. I would certainly give $150 for it.

    Well, I just picked the bike up. It's in nice shape, it only needs a tune up.

    I haven't had a chance to do a full inspection, but I can tell this is going to be an awesome ride.
