CL Bianchi Premio opinions needed

http://wenatchee.craigslist.org/bik/3267474037.html

Found this bike locally and it says it's an '87, but I'm not sure because because I haven't been able to find another one this color.
What year do you think it is/price do you think it's worth?

Thanks for your help,
Zack

Hello Zwinters welcome to the forums. I agree the color does not look right for a '87 Premio. An '86 would be black but the catalog shows red decals. Perhaps they was changed to yellow.

I think $300 seems a bit high but would like a bit more information about the wheels.

The frame is a Tange DB chromoly in "SuperSet" design with mangalloy chainstays and a mangalloy fork. My '87 Sport SX has a similar frame and it rides pretty good and is in the rotation of riders. The drive train is Suntour with friction shifters, and Diacompe brakes.

See if you can get a bit more info from the seller. Where is this Oregon? The season is winding down out there see if you can get it for close to $200 I think that might be a better deal. Does it fit?


Like new 1987 Bianchi Pemio with Tange Cromo tubing. Lugged frame. New wheels and Continental tires. Upgraded 3ttt bars and stem plus Shimano Aero brake levers. New cables and housing. Clean and sharp looking. Best offers considered.

Thank you Bianchigirll! Yeah the decals are starting to look like a gold color to me. I asked to see the bike so I'll hopefully get to see first hand soon. I'm in Washington actually. I was thinking of starting at $200 and seeing what I could get it for as long as I have enough information to talk him down. It's a 54 so it will either be perfect or a little bit small, but because it's close I'm very interested. Of course, I'll have to try sitting on it myself before I really know.

If it was an '86 with altered decals, do you know whether it was made in Japan or not?
I'll try to ask about the wheels.

Thank you for your help!

Your Welcome

I am 99% certain this was made in Japan or Tiawan
