My wife bought me an old tall red Bianchi at a garage sale this afternoon, probably because she really liked the colour and figured I would like it. Yes, I know. You don't have to tell me. Also possibly because I have expressed regrets about getting rid of my old Bianchi a few years ago because it was definitely too small for me (21-inch frame).
Anyway, I suspect that this is a Japanese Bianchi because the components are more or less Shimano, except for the Italian Ambrosio 19 Extra Super Elite rims, and the frame sticker says "MAGNY Ishiwata". There are no other decals on the bike except for the "Eduardo Bianchi" decal on the head.
The frame measures 64cm from crank centre to top of seat tube. The entire bike weighs less than 10 kilos (less than 22 pounds).
The bike was apparently purchased for a triathlon...
Serial Number CS47XXX. Any information about the possible age / pedigree of this bike appreciated.
