    unknown lugged Italian Bianchi

    So I've had this great Italian-made Bianchi for years as my commuter but when I bought the frame and fork there was no real information about it. I'm quite curious about when it was made (early 90's?) and what these frames go for these days (I might of overpaid...). Anyway, I've slowly added Campy mirage drive train, mavic rim/ultegra hub wheel, and would like to add a few more things when I get some more cash.

    Any thoughts would be great, check out the pics on my blog: http://faireduvelo.blogspot.com/

    Thanks!!

    It looks like a '93ish frame what does the Columbus tubing decal say? I believe this will not have an actual model name but would have simply been refered to by the tubing name and group is sold as a complete bike, ie TSX or TSX Chorus or EL OS Ultegra

    Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto (2), '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '88 Trofeo, '86 Volpe, '89 Axis, '79 Mixte, '99 Mega Pro XL Ti, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,

    Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '86 Bertoni (sold), '09 Motobecane SS, '98 Hetchins M.O., '09 K2 Mainframe, '89 Trek 2000, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape

    Tubing

    The Columbus tubing says it's "EL". Thanks for posting the photo.

    + 1 on the early 90's date not much of Bianchi expert but the blue on blue seems to date as 91-94.

    Well then you a 'EL 93' these came as a frame only. '93 would have been the first year the EL was offered (atleast here in the states) and they likely sold until supply was exhausted. That should be a great riding bike.
