    Bianchi 110 anniversay titanium I want to buy

    Hello brothers and sisters. I have fallen in love with a titanium (so I am told) 110 anniversary model by Bianchi.
    The fork is grafite and there are 110 embossed everywhere on this beauty, not just the painted Bianchi logos on the frame. Even the seat is embroided with Bianchi 110.
    I do not know how much this bike is worth. I guess the sky is the limit if you were looking for one but I happen to walk into it by pure chance.
    So, I come to the experts. All components are Campagnolo record (everything) and cosmetically on a scale 1 to 10 this one is a 9 1/2. It has some wear on the leather tightening the handle by the brake out of usage.
    I found some pictures that DO NOT belong to this particular bike I am considering buying but it is the identical color and components (I do not know if the 110 only came in blue) so you get an idea as to what we are talking about.
    The seller is telling me that the Bianchi emblem up front is 14k gold but I think that is hog's poo poo.

    I went to test a Colnago and found this Bianchi calling my name.

    that is a very beautiful bike. I have been searching for that style of Ti frame for years. it is indeed Ti and it is a 1996 model that only came in that dark blue color with the Celeste accents. does it fit you? if I saw that and had the money in my purse I would have taken it right home.

    the frame is listed as Columbus Hyperion 3/2.5Ti with that fabulous Mega tube. this frame was only offered a few years.

    I know, I know, it is indeed beautiful.
    I wasn't looking for one as I said, I went to look at a Colnago and then I saw this awesome Bianchi.
    I did not want to show that much interest in the bike and pretended I was still into the Colnago.
    Casually, I veered the conversation to the Bianchi and he startid raving about how wonderful this 110th anniversary is, that there were a small number made and each is prominently numbered in the front.
    The italian inscription translates to 'manufactured in Italy' as it should if something is made in Italy.
    We laughed because I joked that "last time I checked they spoke Italian in Italy" and it would be funny if we manufactured something here in the states but wrote it in German if exported to Germany.

    The thing is, I don't have a clue as to what to pay for it.
    I don't have wads of Jacksons and certainly not Franklins to go around offering them wantonly.

    If I paid $2500 for it, would that be an excellent price? a fair price? ...you could have done better price?

    Mind you, I will ride this bike. I don't want it for museum piece eventual re-sale value. I am in the market for an Italian speed bike that I can ride and enjoy not one I can compete in.
    Thanks for your quick reply. You sure know your stuff.

    I do not know what consequence my moniker has for the purpose of this thread but suffice to say that the vowels were intentionally removed from the first word.

    I am in the Republic of California sir.

    I would appreciate any help ascertaining the price of this awesome italiana.

    OH I made a mistake it is a 1995 not a '96 if it is in pristine contition I think $2500 sounds OK but of course you have to try and talk him down.

    Uh, the bike I am talking about IS NOT on e-bay.
    The pictures links attached ARE NOT of the actual bike but rather a visual help so we know which bike we are talking about.
    The 110th I am trying to get has NOT hit e-bay or Craig's List yet.
    I am first dibs by happenstance.
    Once again, the bike is in 98% pristine condition with some bad hand rubb wear on the leather hugging the handles around the brake leather. Some patina to go along with the character of the bike, I am told but I sure don't appreciate it.

    was the 110th anniversary made in both 95 and 96?
    and if so, is there a difference in price?
    which one is more desirable?

    Man, the price is getting more ellusive!

    no it was only made in '95. if they still had any left of course they would be sold in '96,'97. the frame was available as a bike or frame through '98 and there was even a MTB frame.

    I've seen full Campy Record bikes from the same period sell for $800 and up. Mid 90's bikes are still depreciating and aren't overly collectible.

    I'll say $1500-2000 only because its hard to say its more valuable than a 1983 Specilaisima w/ a 50th anniversary Campagnolo group.

    Is that also true for a full carbon frame like this one?
    regardless of campagnolo record or not.
    I mean, I rather pay $1500 than $2000 based on that criteria.
    I love steel. My ***, my knife, my bike, all I like because steel is real.

    Its extremely difficult to guesstimate what something like the 110th anniversary is worth. Bianchi probably didnt make alot of them and they probably dont come to market very often.

    I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "its only worth what someones willing to pay". I have feeling the owners taking offers versus actively trying to sell it, otherwise he would have mentioned a price. What an owner would like and what and owner gets offered are 2 different things.

    Whats it worth? I could easily see it going for $1500 with the 'But Now' option on ebay. Do I see it going for $2000 with 'buy now' option? I dont know......

    To clarify:
    The guy who owns it, needs money. He is not selling the 110th Bianchi. He advertised his Colnago and I went to see it. He also has a Mark Mkx (whatever the name of the guy is) for sale but NOT the Bianchi.
    Well the Colnago is nice but the paint pattern is too crazy for me so I kind of disliked the looks once I saw it.
    Then I saw his blue Bianchi and I casually asked him. He said he was not selling it because they are hard to come by and yaddah yaddah... once he sold the other two bikes, his money situation would be stable.
    I asked to ride the Bianchi and it was like prom-night love, the experience lasts you a life time.
    I was impressed. I never rode a titanium before. THE BIANCHI IS FULL TITANIUM.
    Then, the conversation leaned to "if I could get $2500 for the Bianchi, then I solve my problems and keep my Colnago and Mrcx whatever bike".
    Of course no one in these tight times would spend $2,500.00 on a used Bianchi even if it came with Edoardo Bianchi's corpse as a bonus. So, I decided to investigate a bit more about the 110th and come back to him with washingtons in my hand but certainly NOT the $2500 he wants.

    I hope that helps clarify my position.

    Sounds good to me!!!

    I'd recommend showing up with Benjamins in hand....Washingtons could take awhile to count out.

    No disrespect intended but almost every one of those photos shows a logo of some sort. I can't see the frame hardly at all.

    My guess is that $2000 would be an okay price for the bike considering it looks to be in virtually brand new condition, $2500 sound a little high but then I'm not into collecting bikes. The question is what are you going to do with it?
