    I also came across a Bianchi "strada" with the world champion sticker on it. In searching the internet to find out what tubes the Bianchi "strada" is built out of, I came to the assumption that the world champion sticker was applied to their whole line of bicycles in 1988(or 1987). This would include low end to the valuble ones like you hope you have. I have not found out what my tube set is so Icould let me know your model/ tubing.

    Welcome to the Bike Forum's Antique Road Show.

    I think that what you're referring to as the model of the bike is a sticker that's on the bike. The first step is to find the model. If that isn't possible, knowing what components are on the bike, and any sticker indicating the type of tubing would be quite helpful.

    Do you see any decal with a picture of a bird on it that says "Columbus"?

    I think the tubing sticker on Bianchis is usually on the seat tube. Check for a "made in taiwan" sticker on the headtube, too (seriously). Some of the lower end Bianchis were made there, and marked as such. Not bad, but more basic bikes, usually.

    EBR898 is correct about the "Colorado Springs" sticker. I had one on a Strada I gave away; my Strada was a lower end Taiwanese model with straight guage Cro-moly tubing.

    Bianchi was ridden to the World Pro Road Championship in 1986 in Colorado Springs, Bianchi was also celebrating its 100th birthday, so 1987 bikes would for sure have the boasting decal. maybe even late the same year. the 100th anniv. bikes were quite wild at the top of the range.

    I'd be interested to know what components are on the bike, nuovo/super or C-record perhaps? Plan on building my frame up w/used nuovo/super components I have around for a daily comuter.

    Thank you, Poquemahone. I am glad to know the "strada" is CoMo. I originaly was assuming HI-Ten due to the spot welds used to hold it in place before brazing and it being a dumpster dive catch.

    The superleggera and other top-line bikes were made as well as any in the world, but Bianchi build quality was just so-so on the lower grades of bike during the 80's. They were trying to figure out how to stem their blood loss to Asia. I've had a couple that ride nice and look okay until you study how the dropouts are stuck into the frame and fork...

    campione del mondo

    hi there-

    i own a campione del mondo 1986-1987 bianchi. on the top tube it says campione de i'talia i bet yours does too if you still have it. which brings me to my first question. do you still own this bike, if so i would love an opportunity to look at it and possibly buy it. mine is in almost perfect condition i bought off a man in san diego who owned it for 20 years but never road it. i payed $400 for mine and it came all original.(tubing is columbus formula II) i have made recent upgrades and my bike now is worth around $1200. i have been looking for another one to rebuild but have not found one. its been a couple years since you posted this so you might not even have the bike any longer but if you do reply with some pictures of it.

    thanks

    The original poster hasn't posted anything since that thread... Not likely to answer your question.

    However, I am curious about what you have done to a 20 year old bike to increase the value to $1200... In most cases, I would expect a bike of that age to be most valuable if it was historically significant and/or in original new condition without modification.

    Of course, I would be negligent if I didn't ask you to share pictures of your bike... We do like seeing Italian (or other) classic steel bikes.

    Fortunately, my Bianchi is well-crafted (one of the last?), but your comments about sloppy workmanship would certainly apply to my same-vintage Peugeot.
