    87 Bianchi Giro d'Italia

    New member (kind of). I had registered years ago when I picked up my first CV bike, but forgot my login and password.

    This is my newest Craigslist find in very good condition. Nice Campy parts, but the rear derailleur seems to be on it's last leg (springs are sprung). I took a link out of the chain, and although not an ideal fix, it helped with all the slop.

    Question: I'm wondering if I should try to find a NOS derailleur of the same type, or should I be looking for something different? Although some parts are not correct, I would like to keep it semi-period correct.

    Thanks

    Here is another Pug that I picked up, Still waiting on the brooks honey saddle. Inspired by shuttervox's build.

    How's That? Kickin' Bianchi, my friend. I have pretty much the same frame which currently has a brifter setup which is a mix of dura ace and ultegra. I really enjoy the bike so far.

    You might be able to get replacement springs for the derailleur.

    Thank you WalksOn2Wheels for making those pics visible. What's the secret?

    @ John E: Replacement spring/springs??? Is that an option?

    The Peugeot is the princesses. I have been looking for a Brooks B17 woman's saddle to complete "the look" (honey colored), but they are currently priced out around $90. Anyone know of a good deal on one?

    Thanks everyone

    For Photobucket, when you are looking at your picture, you should have the option of an IMG tag to copy. It would look something like [IMG] url goes here [/IMG] I think you were trying to use the html tag. Those come in handy for ebay and CL.

    You nailed the problem WalksOn2Wheels.

    Try once more to get a picture in my post.

    Here is the 1st Peugeot I picked up for the princess. Paid top dollar, but it is in near perfect condition.

    Great looking Bianchi. is the tubing Formula 2? are you in the US or Europe? the decals suggest the frame is a '88. can you post a close up of the RD? I believe there is no spring on the upper pivot/mounting bolt on that Victory or Triomphe. if your happy running friction I woul lok for a midlevel early '90s Campi RD with a spring there and slant parralellogram designed RD.

    what are the brakes? the crank looks like a first gen Chorus. I believe the OEM kit on a '88 Giro was DA.


    HEY whats the name of that site with the different bike catalogs listed on it? I know the Bianchi catalogs are mixe up but I am pretty sure there is a '88 catalog there.

    Hello Bianchigirl,

    Hey thanks for the input and props. That celeste really grows on a person? Yes, it is Columbus formula 2. I'm in the US (Montana). PO told me it was a 1987. Here are some close-ups.




    I really appreciate your input.

    What's the reason for the 2-part shifter?

    The second small lever must turn the index feature on and off, so you have the option to go with just friction...

    I'll have to try real hard to remember to look this up but I am pretty sure this is a '88 frame and that Giro came with DA. the RD certainly looks like a Victory


    Pic from Velo Base, http://velobase.com/ViewComponent.as...749ee&Enum=108

    I am not sure if there was a Victory equipped bike in '88 but i would think this frame was built with parts from someone's bin.

    those Synchro levers are complicated little buggers.

    Don't ask me how I remembered to look at this thread but I did. the frame as I thought does appear to be an '88 which came with a Victory Syncro group. the Chorus cranks were likely put on by a previous owner as Vectory was only available in 170, how long are the cranks?

    the paint on this looks in fabulous condition I suspect it has had a easy life in a heated garage or basement. Great Score!!!

    also the catalog site was Bulgier here is the page from the '88 catalog incorrectly listed as an '86
