Frame doesn't weigh 2 pounds, more likely 4 to 5 pounds.

That guy is an insane liar. That price is crazy - "Campagnolo Parts" - there are no parts except the headset! the bike has no tubing decal. 2 lbs w/ fork or w/o fork? Come on.

+1!

Or is there a Bianchi expert that can "enlighten" us mere mortals, as to why that would sell for either of those figures!

I "asked seller a quesstion" to see what his take on it was.
Hopefully I stated it politely enough to merit a reply.

We'll see. I'm "watching that item".

Well, except dropouts and BB cable guides.

And, c'mon, it's Celeste Green...that's gotta be worth at least $500 itself.

I doubt that he will respond. Probably hoping some idiot will bid the overpriced starting bid.

I wouldn't pay that much if it was brand new old stock. My roommate has pretty much the same bike, in decent condition, that he got for $350. Before I clicked the link I was thinking $100.

Hey, come on, give the guy a break. He meant two kilos; he was still a little foggy from his recent score.

My local CL has a complete Bianchi Campione listed for $500. Even that seems a bit steep to me...unless it's got some high end Campagnolo group. Looks like it has modern brifters.

The lightest lugged steel bike made by Bianchi was a proto-type,an EL-OS.It was in 1991.Complete with pedals it weighed a shade over 17lbs.It had a titaniam stem.Doing the math,the frame was no less than 3lbs. The bike listed can't weigh 2lbs.,frame only,let alone with fork.Start with a falsehood,the rest flows from there.

I got a frame to paint from Craig Calfee one time. He said the goal was to keep it less than 2 1/4 pounds.
It weighed 2 pounds, 1 1/2 ounces when I got it.
It weighed 2 pounds, 3 7/8 ounces when he got it back! (wheeew!)

BTW, Calfee frames are carbon!
except for the bamboo frames.

So even 2 kilos is generous!

Now revised, no weight and reduced price. It's actually a pretty interesting Bianchi frame. I've never seen that seat-stay top or fork crown before. Looks like a 70's bike except for the extra bottle bosses on the seat-tube. Maybe added later and repainted?

If he had an accurate scale and could show that the frame/fork weighs 6lbs, I would say $500 might be an ok price if it is an SL tubeset. But I'm a sucker for Bianchi's.

IT IS every bit of a 6lb. bike. NOT worth $500 even if it hadn't been re-painted,which it HAS,at LEAST a partial.I know "un-authentic celeste when I see it.
