    bianchi racing bike

    hi, i picked up a bianchi bike at a garage sale

    i was wondering if anyone knows what it is worth

    the frame is made of high manganese steel and made with oji original frame tubes

    the shifters are Suntour

    there is "piaggio" sticker on frame

    colour is dark blue

    I'm not sure of how much it's worth but here's the picture from your link.



    what I suggest you do is search ebay for completed auctions, first Bianchi then Piaggio.

    thanks for getting my picture to appear - how did you do it?

    i looked at ebay - there are a lot of different bianchi

    i don't think this bike is worth that much

    it doesn't have compagnalo parts

    there were some bikes sold for $200 - $300 but they look different and i think they were made in italy

    this bike i believe was made in japan

    the deraillours are suntour which is not worth much

    this bike is quite heavy also

    I concur with your assessment, mlim123. However, it is probably a superb bike for general recreation and transportation, and it should handle much better than most of the other bikes in this price class.

    I bought a very similar bike to this (Bianchi Piaggio) in Minneapolis in 1990 for my lovely wife. We spent $200. It was a great bike and fun to ride, but I don't think it is worth a bunch of money.

    Depends on where you live. Probably would've fetched $150 in clean condition here in the SF area.
