    Help identifying bianchi

    I bought this Bianchi bike at a yard sale and am trying to figure out about what year it is, the model, and value. A local bike shop offered me $40, but my guess is that they would turn around and sell it for a good amount more. It obviously needs some work. I am attaching pics. Your help is appreciated.

    If you clean it up I think in the 200-250 range, maybe more if you can get rid of the rust. My guess its 1980's vintage, but Bianchigirl can tell bette than I.

    Morning peterdw welcome to the forums. Nice find. That is an '85 Stelvio, the lowest priced Italian Bianchi that year. I've never ridden one but I understand that Special frame was pretty nice. Bianchi used the same frame across most of the Italian models that year, the exception being the Mondiale and the Centenario.

    What did you pay for it? $40 may be a quick doubling of your money. Just looking at the photos it needs a lot of work and some parts to get it in good selling condition. A full overhaul is in order, remove all parts from the frame clean and wax it. Clean all the parts then reassemble. new tires, cables, bar tape, Kool stop brake blocks and brake hoods. Actually you may be better off just getting some Tektro aero levers, it will be about the same price as hoods (if you can find them) for those older Modolo levers).

    If you have the tools and the skill to do all the work you might invest $50-100 in parts and 5-8 hours of your time getting it into shape. OH that quick release on the seat post has to go.

    The shifters and derailleurs are Campagnolo Triomphe, the crankset is Ofmega branded for Bianchi, the hubs should be Ofmega as well.

    Hope this helps.

    I only paid $10 for the bike. If I just cleaned it up what should it be worth to someone? Thank you for all the info on it.

    If you put minimum effort in to making it look nice you might get $100-150 for it and pass all the work on to someone else at an inflated price.

    If you only interest was how much you can make off it you should have left it alone. Also if your more interested in turning a profit than doing the right thing, that is fixing the bike up correctly before reselling it, go back to the shop and get the $40 they offered.
