So I went and picked up that Bianchi I had posted trying to ID from the CL photos the other day. See thread here.
So anyway, I give the lady the cash, put it in my car, and drive the 2 hours home in the snow storm we had gotten out of nowhere. Upon arrival I pull it out, pop the wheels back on and look. The sticker says "Nuova Racing 12/v" which I have no idea what it means. But comparing the date stamp (3.M) to the catalog and parts spec leads me to believe it is the one listed as a Nuovo Racing.
The bike is original right down to the tubes according to her. Her husband bought it for $900 in 1985 or 86 (Probably on closeout for that price I am assuming?) and rode it for 2 summers before hanging it up in the garage where I pulled it down from, cobwebs and all. A small spot of surface rust at the base of the head tube and that is it. Just needs a good cleaning and it will be good as new. Purchase price was $175, and 4 hours of driving round trip.
