    bianchi veloce 12-speed

    bianchi.jpg

    I'm new to this and could use some help. Saw this for sale and was interested but have no idea about the model or worth. They are asking $495. It has all (i think original) campagnolo components. They say its a bianchi veloce but i havent been able to find anything about a 12-speed version of that. Does anyone know more about this bike and whether its worth the asking price? Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, i dont have any closer up photos. This is from the seller.

    I am pretty sure this is a '85 with a Victory group on it. It is a very nice bike but if I was looking at it I would like the price closer to $350-400. It is very possible it needs all the bearings regreased and judging from the lousy tape job on the bars I am certain a full tune up is in order too

    Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto, '90 Campione del Fausto Giamondi Specialisma Italiano Mundo, '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '86 Volpe, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,

    Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '09 Motobecane SOLD, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape

    +1 I'm not seeing anything Veloce on this bike. Definetley a Campy Victory crank and RD these are hard to miss as they a slighlty defirent looking than most of Campy's stuff and kinda ugly by Campy standards. Based on the poor setup bartape handlebar position hieght I would also assume it needs a full servicing and tuneup. $325-375 maybe less in a tough market. While a very nice Italian bike it is definetly mid level with lesser Campy components nothing special.

    Unlike the current Veloce model this one is not named for the group it was just named Veloce for Rapidly.

    And I actually need more info from the OP because this is either a Veloce with Triomphe or a Vittoria with Victory.
