Identifying Vintage Bike?

Sorry if I'm double-posting, but I think this is a better spot for it.

Could someone please help me get more info on this bike?

Hi,

Sometimes you can find out the age of a bike its components - provided that they are original. Some deraillers have date stamps on them, etc.

To start with, what sort of deraillers has it got, and are there any markings on the inside of the unit?

Mountech was released in 1983. Check inside the derailler unit for any writing or letters which will allow for identification of the exact date the derailler was made - unless someone else knows by looking at at. I would suppose that the bike is around 83-85 model, if the derailler is in fact the original equipment.

Maybe do a yahoo or google search on bianchi - suntour mountech - to see if any other bikes came with this equipment. Maybe this will give you more of an idea.
