    What is this?

    Hello,

    I found this thing on CL and can't really get my head around it. It seems to have some very interesting parts and others are terrible. All in all the price is not bad if it were italian tubing with some campy on it... Maybe negotiable and Stem, bars shifters etc can be changed back.

    What is it though...?

    I don't know the brand, but there are some very nice parts on it that work very well. I like vintage-modern mixes and this won't last a day at that price in my area.

    Nevermind, the bike is sold. It was kinda nice even though it looked odd with the stem.

    Someone knew what they were doing (the buyer who scooped it up.) Despite the unknown frame and horrifying stem, the Campy parts alone could net $400. Then you've still got wheels, a decent looking Columbus tubed frame, and odds and ends.

    I definitely would've parted it out. Too much of a random mix of components spanning a few decades to leave all in one mess like that.

    I agree with BG though, I see nothing to indicate this bike was at all related to Bianchi.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html
