    Bianchi campione del mondo early 70s

    I am going to look at a friends fathers bike that sat in the basement for the last 20yrs or so. I was looking for any info on the bike that anyone has. I have only seen one picture and it has nice chrome lugs, but I can't tell what brand components or type it has. He said he actually bought it in Italy in the early 70s. I was also wondering what I should offer him if it is in good shape.


    Thanks,
    Gregg

    Nice bike, but why is the seller boasting about the original chain and tires? Those are the first items which need to be replaced, along with the rim tapes, brake pads, cables, and housings.

    Cool, but a low-end frame. With the mix of parts maybe worth $200, but of course would do better on ebay.

    The bike is suposed to be an early 70's bike but it has a Shimano 600 kit. I thought the early 70's shimano were named after birds like the Crane long cage. I have forgotten the name of the one below Crane. I emailed him this morning saying I would pay $200 and maybe more after seeing it. I guess he took that as a guide because it went up at $300 in NH right after that. The better Italian Bianchis I remember from the day all had Campagnolo and the Suntour and Shimano was on the Japanese bikes and lower end Italian.

    I'll let it be someone else's treasure.

    An opportunist seller, brought from Italy, showing a German bike shop label... and Japanese parts. Gotta love it.

    Update on the bike. The great uncles trip was to Sweeden not Italy. The bike weighs 25.5 pounds so it isn't a Columbus SL for sure. No explanation on the derailleurs but I think the bike is a little newer. The 1973-1974 cam from a sticker on the bike of the world champoinships Bianchi took. The same sticker was used until their next victory which might have been 1981. The owner is an ok guy who is more into mountain bikes and doesn't know what he was given. He is also now more realistic on price.
