    Red Bull delivers to your place?

    I wish the pic was better but that is an '88 Campione de Italia. The cranks are Ofemga branded for Bianchi yes? There should be a little mark that looks sort of like this ~ near the number for the teeth stamp.

    Those Formula 2 frames rider pretty well.

    You always remember your first...

    Hello all,

    Just wanted to share a couple photos of my first road bike ever, a Bianchi Special. (I think it's an early 80something).

    It's a little tall for me, but learning to work on bicylcles and satisfying my need to tinker has been epic. Oh, and the rides. I ride it to work most days and try to throw in a few rides a week after work before dinner and longer ones on the weekend. Hoping I lean up a bit.

    I'm not usually one for gold anything, but i needed to replace the off-size steel clunkers it came with anyway, and these gold Velocities just kept speaking to me. On top of that, I'm a rabid 49ers fan so that was the tipping point. A local bike shop threaded some old Dura Ace hubs I found on ebay. I haven't decided how I feel about them... while it looks slick I think I compromised the integrity of what I thought would be a period specific renovation.

    In reality, I'm looking for a better frame to fit me and move my components onto. One that is in my size, using that famous Columbus steel, and in the trademark Bianchi Celeste Green...

    1953ish Bianchi Selvino.

    Originally built by Bianchi as a 3-speed city bike with a Simplex derailleur and a very cool internal cable routing for the RD and rear brake cable. I call this a "creative" restoration. The paint was shot so off to the powder coater. I had the wood rims lying around and I thought the woods fenders and bars would be a nice touch. Nothing is original on the bike. I especially like the FB spindle and crank I had for it.

    Thanks Bianchigirl. You seem to be the bianchi guru around here. May I bother you with a question? Would you know what kind of bottom bracket and headset this bike takes?

    Or would anyone reading happen to know? I know it's a japanese Ishiwata model, with 126 hub spacing.

    Thanks everyone for your potential help with this!

    Going by the decal style and crank this matches up to a '84 Special. The headset (HS) is simply listed as Bianchi 25, think they were stamped Bianchi but I am not sure. There is nothing listed for the bottom bracket (BB) but I suspect it is/was just a basic Sugino steel cup model. The HS is of course 1" English thread and the BB shell is English threaded as well.
    @iab that is beautiful, the bars are really something.

    Anyone care to guess the model/year?

    Donated frame. Paint is bad, but metal is good. Thinking late 80's.

    Take a photo of the BB shell. That should help us identify the year exactly.

    Given the chrome and the engravings on the fork crown, it looks like a high-end frame.

    Donated to who? was this thing in a fire or something? Is the seatpost stuck? Does it have Gipiemme lugs or dropouts?

    It looks like a '89/90 Mondiale frame but looks like somewhere along its abused and neglected life it even lost its CampI headset.

    Hi there!

    Here's my old Bianchi, it's been resting/rusting about 15 years in daddys garage. Unclear where the old man got it from, probably traded for a couple of cases of beer. Anyway, parents moved from house to apartment an wanted to get rid of it. (ID?) Under the saddle to the right: 2.8 and to the left 202
    If anyone could help me identifying the year it was made I would be grateful.
    It's a SuperLeggera and I've shifted the original wheels to something (I believe) not so delicate. The originals rests in-house for the time being.

    Hello Tonyett, welcome to the forums. the Super Leggera was always on of the nicer models normally in the top three. If this was sitting for 15+ years it needs a lot more than different wheels before you start riding it. The grease in the bearings, if there is any left, is likely rock hard and doing more harm than good at this point. I good overhaul and scrubbing is in order for this Bianchi. Then it needs rubber hoods for the brake levers, new cables, brake blocks, maybe a chain too.

    I can't quite make out a few details that would help with dating, maybe some more pics? Judging from the decal style and what details I can make out on the brakes, I think this is around a '77 or '78 machine. Is there a date on the rear derailleur near where it bolts on to the bike? Does the front brake have a regular hex nut holding it on or a recessed allen type? lastly are the brake quick release levers flat or domed?

    The "2.8" would indicate a 1978, check the date code on the rear derailleur and the cranks.

    Nice bike, really worth cleaning up.

    Just got back from my first ride on it with the new fork. Yep...I like it.

    Thanks for the info Bianchigirll! And the advice.
    I will take it apart during winter.

    I'd say the front brake is held by an regular hex nut.
    The derailleur has a stamp on it saying PATENT-77 and the brake quick release levers are flat

    From all that it's certainly around 77/78. The Columbus decal is certainly pre 79 and although bits do get swapped around these all seem fairly consistent. Might be a problem moving the seat post after 15 years and I wouldn't spend any time on it until that had been looked at.
