    come on then you lot of clever cloggs,analyse this.

    firstly hello

    i fancy getting into a bit of riding racing bikes, never done it before and dont know much about it but i brought this off ebay last week for 102.
    i`m 6ft5" so needed something with a large frame and this fitted the bill at 25".
    i`ve done a bit of research now and realise that bianchi have some history and a bit of pedigree, i feel i have made a good choice although i have only ridden it around the block so far, i`m hoping to get out for a blast at the weekend.
    basically can anyone tell me any info on this bike at all?
    i realise its old and probably has all the wrong componants but just looking at the frame,colour,stickers and numbers any info of year built or where it was built,hand built or mass factory robot produced, anything to give me some insight to what i am riding would be gratefully received.
    i`m going to ride it for a bit and if i like it i will be looking into fine tuning/updating it and as its got some surface rust on it(it looks worse in the pics) i might look into powder coating so if i do enjoy it i`ll be back on here for more help.
    i hope the pic link to photo bucket works.
    thanks in advance.

    Hello since your Bianchi is in the UK it is a bit harder for us birds and blokes here in the states to analyse. but judging from the color and styl of the decals and the tubing typ I think this is a '83/'84ish Sport SS (atleast herein the states) I suspect the fork, RD and cranks are all replacement parts.
