    90s Bianchi frameset with Campy mix

    I have a Bianchi SBX frameset equipped with a varied selection of some known to me components and others that i cannot place a year or model. So i am looking for answers to my complicated post. This bike has been sitting in storage for years now and before i go off on some quest or head down to Trexlertown for the swap. i need to know what i have in my possession. I took a ton of pics to post here, I didn't know whether to post all the pics or the links to my album so i will post some pertinent photos. I took the bike out of storage today and it has some dust on it, so please forgive me with that. The original chrome fork is not with the bicycle but rather a chrome Tange fork is on the bicycle. This was my primary racer that i competed on when i raced long, long ago. Some facts i know
    59cm Bianchi SBX frame, fork is Tange, i had swapped out the original for a carbon fiber while i raced. original was borrowed by a friend...forever apparently (unless he sees this post). SBX was Bianchi's proprietary tubing and was supposed to be the equivalent of SLX. 27.2 seatpost. small dent on downtube where handlebars hit during hauling. It's the only dent on the bike. The bike has chrome rear triangle with internal cable routing, Bianchi engraved on BB shell, Downtube lug, brake bridge,

    I believe it has a Campy C-record crankset (possible 1st generation, please advise otherwise). I do not believe the rings are original to the crankset.
    Super Record front derailleur with the 3 hole cage.
    Campy Chorus 9 speed rear derailleur which is being used with an 8 speed cassette with no problems.
    Ergos, unsure, but They may be chorus or record, they work with 8 speed cassette but something reminds me that they may have been 9 speed but worked.
    Campy Chorus headset, unsure of date.
    cassette, just a 8 speed campy.
    rear wheel, as you can see from the pics. It is a Mavic Open Pro SUP clincher with ? Campy hub, unsure of make, date, model, etc.
    Campy brakeset, monoplanar? unsure of model and date.
    BB is Campy Chorus, not the integrated types but rather the "all those parts are a BB?" types that the kid's comment on.

    pedals don't matter, they are TIME midi and staying with me. The seatpost is not campy. seat is a Bianchi celeste saddle.
    So besides having a mix of Campy of multiple groups from what i believe, which BTW work wonderfully. What am i looking at overall for this bicycle. Also, are there areas that are worth more and i should be aware of and conscious of when dealing with people. Normally I would hold onto this frameset forever but in honesty, i haven't used it in years and I use my Alloro more often, and I am in need of more items for a build i am doing now. I have considered putting the Alloro Components on this frameset and selling the Alloro frameset and this mixed bag of parts but i need to know what the heck i have. Please don't judge me. haha. I know i probably have not done this bicycle justice. Please see pictures below. I will include two posts with about 20 pics. If it is too much. let me know. I just wanted to try and get pics of the various parts so it would be easier to ID.

    Thanks! Yea, i rode a 59cm with a tall post, low stem...those were the days. Now i have level bars with level saddle. I just hope some Campy fans, you know the guys that ID stuff in their sleep jump in. Like i said, i need to know exactly what i am working with so i know my stuff.

    Nice Bianchi. I know a girl who would love to try a SBX frame. I'll let more knowledgeable members talk about value but I think is something might go quick to the right person at $500 or so or could languish on the bay for months at $350

    The frameset itself I am not too concerned. i have an idea. It would probably go anywhere, as you describe from $350 in a low market time to probably 650 if the size is right and the individual is thrilled. It's a great frameset. Which is why i am deciding on what to do, If i think it is more valuable to me. I may keep it and swap over some components and wheels, etc from the Dedacciai tubing Alloro would sell lower, it is also a sweet frameset for comfort. I just don't see this bike getting it's fair justice on a shop wall.

    Five hours there, Five hours back. Doable, but a long trek. It would realistically mean an overnight, or spending most of a day in a car.

    I've done Toronto to Louisville KY in a day, but that was with another driver swapping out. Toronto to Ottawa or Toronto to Montreal is about 5 hours as well, have done it many times, but not there and back in a day.

    My only time in PA was passing through on the way to Sandusky Ohio to go to Cedar Pointe.

    Is that a dent right ahead of the downtube boss?

    Yes, see the clipped and cut from the original posting.
    "small dent on downtube where handlebars hit during hauling. It's the only dent on the bike."

    Also, still looking for any confirmation or ideas on the componentry IDs.

    I understand that! I have been doing some long treks this year as we look at places in North Carolina. They are exhausting. Besides, i would meet you half way! haha

    Reparto C frameset is probably worth $300-350.00 by itself on Ebay, depending on how the dent is received. I would think 600.00-650.00 is realistic for the whole bike. . My RC TSX-UL frame which is a few years newer than yours retailed for $750.00 in 1996. These frames are sought after.

    Yea, the frames seem to draw quite a bit of interest. I remember the TSX-UL. This was the 'heavier' version. They used to tell you if you weighed over 145 to go with the SBX. It's a shame Bianchi didn't keep very good records of some of the builders through the 80s and 90s because a good deal of these framesets quality is Top notch and if it were tagged with a 'maker' name. They would fetch higher dollars. Not that there is anything wrong with Bianchi's name. But i think most would understand that.

    The dent was actually caused from Scott drop handlebars. The handlebars were transported on a rack with the wheel removed and the handlebars turned towards the frameset and strapped. I didn't do this, i had someone take the bike from an event for me. The end result was the Scott drop bar left a dent after the bumpy ride. Unfortunate but it happened. It's almost worth probably more money to part out then sell as a complete. Which it is starting to look like i will be placing the pretty bits upon the SBX frameset and selling the other parts.

    Thank you for the input!
