Recently bought my very first road bike! A vintage Celeste Green Bianchi. Guy I bought it from says he thinks it's a 1977, but I'm looking for other opinions. Also wondering what you all think it might be worth?
Made in Italy sticker on frame
Campagnolo downtube shifters
Campagnolo Nuovo Record rear derailleur
Frame says 'Nuova Racing 12 vel.' and handlebars say "Mod Grand Prix, 3TTT"
Serial number appears to be on both sides of seat lug "1N" and "2395"
Has newer 700 Bontrager RaceLite Tires
Has a few scuff marks, but no rust and seems to be in pretty good shape overall. Wondering if this was built in Italy pre 1981 and shipped over, or if it was assembled in Japan...?
Thanks for the help!
I included a link to some pictures. I've got a lot more if those would help....
