I would like to send a huge Thank You to ChicagoAl who, despite his marital problems, was a big help to me last night. I stumbled across something on CL that I had to have but the seller would not ship. originally I had contacted Al as i was having trouble emailing the seller. Al offered to drop everything and rush right over and check it out.
a few hours later he called me from the sellers house and described in detail the condition of the bike and components. after confirming that the bike did indeed appear to be original Al and I came to terms on purchasing it. I immediately sent Al the funds to cover the purchase plus shipping. Al will try, again despite his difficulties at home, try and get me some better pics later today and get the bike packed and shipped for me also.
OH yes of course it is a Bianchi but you have to wait until I get it to see just what it is. it is not however a X-4 or a Centenario.
thank you again Al for your invaluable assistance.
Al do hope you will keep the details under your hat for me
