I wanted to put a real vauge title on here like "new toy arrives" or some such nonsense. but since we can't, or atleast I never figured how to, edit a posting title.
anyway I am sure some of you saw this little item on the apprasail threads. well I have been wanting a TT/Funny Bike for awhile now and when I saw this I just manuvered to get ahold of it. also there is a good chance that although Bertoni was Univega's "Boutique Label" it was built by Bianchi.
the Olympiad is a '86 with a Columbus SL frame, full Super Record group sans hubs. the wheels are, atleast according to the brochure are Ambrosio disc wheels. the frame and the wheels were repainted at one time. the seller apparently worked for Cycle Art and was going to do a wild paintjob but decided to use the stock color instead, and also painted the wheels to match. the stem is Cinelli and the bars TTT.
i have not had a chance to assmeble it yet, I ran out this afternoon and met a BFr who was in town on business, nice guy. I'll get it together tomorrow
BTW, I am on the hunt for a nice 650c front wheel clincher or tubular or a good condition rim
