Colour code Bianchi -82

I bought an 82 Bianchi with full Campa SR a year ago and was a bit dissapointed that it didn't fit. But I am going to try with a shorter stem and see if that does the trick. It's painted in horribly red/blue and I plan to get it repainted but I don't know wich colour. I have seen in the forum that some models came in a rather nice charcoal/anthracite. It appears they only came in celeste in 81 and a choice of celeste or black in 83 according to http://www.bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/ . Sorry to say I don't like the celeste but would black be appropriate? Is there somewone who has the colour code for the black/charcoal/anthracite? What model is it I have anyway? Superleggero or Supercorsa? (Left side of seat tube says 45 and right side 82.)

black would be appropriate, although the best money is with celeste, if you ever plan to resell.

I'd vote for Celeste, too. Hey, sea foam green is not my favorite color, but when you put it on a Bianchi, I see it in a different light. I just looks good.

I looked at the freewheel and saw it's an Everest (and not Regina). Does that make the bike a Supercorsa? Did Bianchi have a Supercorsa in 1982? Anybody who knows?

Celeste is an acquired taste

There was a Super Corsa in 1982 and it did have an Everest freewheel and Super Record components. Does your bike have Chrome headlugs, fork crown, seat stay caps (with Bianchi pantographed on them) driveside chain stay and dropouts? If it is a Super Corsa there would also be a serial number on the bottom of the BB shell in addition to the numbers on the seatlug.

If it is a Super Corsa I would definitely vote for Celeste as the Corsa is the team edition bike and Celeste was the team colour.

I didn't know it was possible to be a Bianchi fan and not like celeste.
I'm confused, I need to think about this one.

Ok, I give. Celeste it will be. I found an original new Everets freewheel and ordered black sew on handlebar cover. VIP: Yes, it's all there as you describe it, exept that I can't find a serial number. It could be that it's over painted. I'll try to get the old paint off next week.
On the forum I found the celeste (or one of them): Sikkens 455A1. Would that be the right one?
I want to do this right so I would really need pictures of a Super Corsa 1982 and also the superleggero for comparsion. And the specs like this 1981: http://www.bulgier.net/pics/bike/Cat...hi-81a/pg4.jpg I really searched the net but couldn't find any. Someone here?

Old thread, but it still makes me wonder if you did build the bike? Pics?
