First off...sorry about my spelling
I recently aquired two Bianchi road bikes off of CL, the 1st for 80 bucks and the second for 30 bucks (SCORE!). I am trying to figure out exactly what I have and finding it rather difficult. I am putting them both at mid 80's, but could be wrong. ANY help would be GREAT!
So the 1st one....
I know it's a Bianchi Brava, it has a tiny little Brava sticker on the top tube near the front
Formula 2 columbus tubing
Suntour Sprint, the front is stamped BH and the rear is stamped BA
Modolo America brakes, front and back
Bianchi stamped cranks, I don't see any other markings on them except on the screws which are stamped ofmega.
The headset is also ofmega
Ambrosio 19 elite rims
Regina Extra 8x on the on the smallest cog in back
nothing on the hubs
The handlebars and brakes levers are not original, someone had put flat handlebars on it at some point, so I changed those out.
Made in Italy sticker
The serial number is 690715 on one side of the BB and "hi" stamped the other direction on the other side of the BB.
No model name anywhere on it. It has...
Suntour SVX, front is stamped BL and the rear has CA in a circle.
Sugino VP cranks with VP in a raised circle, 613 in a smaller circle with 3 dots, Made in Japan 6 and 170 all stamped on the back.
Araya 27" rims
Suzue hubs with 6 A LPF stamped on the front one and 5 C LPF stamped on the back one.
Suntour Perfect rear cogs with either BK or BR stamped on them (hard to tell which)
Champion with a wreath is all that is on the handlebars
SR stem with Suntour stem shifters
Shimano brakes BR Z57 made in Japan 43-57 LB on the back brake and I cant read what's on the front (it looks the same as the back), except for the stamp IB.
Has a Cr-Mo 3 main tubes sticker near the top of the seat tube and Made in Taiwan sticker near the bottom of the seat tube.
Serial number is 60237268
