Is this vintage enough? Bianchi content ahead

Just picked up this 1991 (thanks for dating the bike Bianchigirl) Bianchi Forza a few days ago and I have to say it was a pleasure to work on this one.

Before,











After,

Nice...lots of potential. My '92 Axis has similar graphics..."of the period". I think they look kind of goofy now, but it's fantastic bike. Get rid of some of that rust and have a great ride.

BentLink; if your Axis has graphics like that is a '90 or 91.
