    New 80's Bianchi

    Hey guys,

    Let me know if I'm in the wrong forum for this thread.

    I'm pretty new to the cycling world, despite knowing how to ride a bike for most of my life. I just recently purchased a early 1980's Bianchi. I was wondering if you guys could help me with a few things. I want to identify how much it is worth, as well as exactly what year it is. It says on the frame Bianchi Limited, with an emblem that says Piaggio. The 022 chromoly badge below the seat says Ishiwatacrmo. The components are Fuji it appears with Suntour shifters. I plan on converting this bike to fixed gear, any thing I should be aware of?





    I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've always worked for me.

    Well, you should be aware that Fuji never put parts on a Bianchi bike so at some point someone switched out the original stuff. However, that really doesn't mean a whole lot as you aren't using them anyway.

    Please don't cut, file, hacksaw, or grind off any of the braze-ons. That way the frame can be returned at some point to original condition.
    Laterally stiff yet vertically compliant.
