I was just given an old bicycle that I know nothing about and figured I'd post here to see what you all thought. I suspect it's a cheap 80s Made in Japan Bianchi, but I have not found much on the internet regarding 80s yellow Bianchi Sports. And it seems information via serial number is spotty at best.... ugh, it was so easy with my old Schwinn!
And I'm guessing some of the decals have been removed over the years since all of the images I see online have Bianchi's with decals down the seat tube. There is a Made in Japan sticker near the bottom bracket as well as a Paggio sticker on the seat tube.
Thoughts? Any guess on the year/model? Is anything on this old bike worth anything? I'm considering making it a fixed gear or SS bike, but a cruise around the neighborhood last night had me reconsidering as it was pretty smooth for an old machine. I just had to put new tires and tubes on it to get it back up and running.
