I bought a Bianchi Sport out of a garage this past weekend for $50. I'll be using this as a secondary bike. I may use it for triathlons as my primary bike is a recumbent.
Here are some photos: https://picasaweb.google.com/greendr...eat=directlink.
I'm thinking it's from 1989 based on some information from alanbikehouston in this thread (http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/in.../t-114761.html). What do you think?
Also, this bike is way lighter weight than I would expect from a steel frame.
The components seem like an odd mix to me. Shimano 607(?). The brakes, Dia-Compe. Suntour thumb shifter. Bianche Selle Italia saddle.
What is the deal with the handle bars?
Would this have likely been made in Japan? What is the difference between the Sport and the Sport SX and the Sport Limited? Which would this one be?
And, for kicks, how much would I try to sell it for if I got tired of it?
