Yesterday my mother gave me my father's old Bianchi bicycle. It is definitely NOT in good condition....my brother spray-painted most of it when he was a teenager, but he thoughtfully did not paint anything that had the Bianchi logo on it. My dad was born in Italy and came to the US in 1954. This bicycle either dates from his university days--he started at the University of Rome in 1939--or when my folks got married (1952). Are there books, catalogs or websites I should look at? Or is there somebody in the Maryland/DC area who might be able to identify it?
I will post a picture, likely tomorrow, when I have access to a camera.
