I thought that's what they were. I've got a set of NOS Seoul 88s I recently had laced. I believe they are just a renamed omega v.
the other bikes look great.
thanks, got a dream cx on hold at mo, hopefully i get it before the people in white coats arrive
why thank you Mr Mango
I got a frame as gift from a bike shop
nos, max steel, a fine piece, but I fear the cost of sourcing an nos period gruppo would be astronomically prohibitive, as it's a little too big, and all I've kept I justify (poorly) by using, so it's just been sold, and will pay for the dream cx full bike and leave a little change
also got an esa mexico awaiting finishing touches
My 73 crescent pepita... Powdercoated because of a bad reprint when I got it. Sometime in the 80s someone replaced the pedals with superbe pros and the brakes with gran compe campy clones... Everything else is nuovo record. I replaced the downtime shifters with suntour barcons. The saddle is a fujita belt that I went crazy on with a blade... More comfy this way tho.
Here is my dad's 1986 Faggin road bike:
Rides so smooth!
well, alas, traveled nearly 3 hrs by train to collect, and it had a dent on the tt, was a dream cx, and the dent was in the crimp, so i left it (
Sorry I'm not sorry.
Hi all, I am looking to fix up a bike, however, I am not too familiar with certain brands etc.. What do you guys think about this bike as a fixer upper? Can anyone tell me something about this Bianchi bike, and is it worth $30?

It has a lot to do with what you want it for. Best to repost to What's it Worth.
Thank you for responding Prowler! Your response was very helpful. See ya around!
1984 Trek 770 with Super Record. I previously owned a 1983 Schwinn Traveler, but sold it. I bought the Trek from the original owner via Craigslist, who had changed nothing in his years of riding save for the chain. It was in quite good shape considering how long he'd ridden it, but the rear wheel was beginning to crack around the spokes, so I reused the hubs to build new wheels and replaced the Regina compact freewheel with a Shimano from Amazon (Megarange is nice for me, and the Regina for some reason had two 16t cogs). I took about a month and a half to gather materials, tools, clean everything up and replace the consumables. Decided to go with a more flashy color palette (but still 80's). I went on my first long ride a couple days ago, and this thing flies. I love this bike.
pretty ALAN Competition, set up as a FG. Swapped the alloy forks to some more sturdy "forcella originale" from Columbus, converted a GS crank to a pseudo pista crank by mounting it on a modern sealed bb with a shorter spindle. 52/17 is pretty strident, but managable.

My New to me Lotus Excelle
Want to convert it to Singlespeed/fixie with some ThickSlick tires. Buuuuuuuut dont know where to start. Might just leave it as is.
Now I finally have one too! 1990 Cannondale ST400:
Picked up a longer stem, now just gotta get some wider bars :D
Mid 1980's Trek Pro Series 560. First road bike and loving it! The rear original wheel the axle was bent, so I replaced it. Trying to go for the vintage-modern look :)
