What is a bianchi record 965?

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Bianchi-Recor...ht_4342wt_1348

I am interested in this frame as it is small and I have been searching high and low for anything good quality and small. (if I can get it at a good price), but not sure what the number means or where record would be in the 90's hierarchy. I have found many references to rekords with numbers....but makes no sense to me.
I read that cromor is pretty good.
It would so annoy my husband if I also had a purplish bianchi, but one that is better than his...

That is a European market model and is different from what we have here in the states. I think it looks more like a late '80s and very early '90s frame judging by the horizontal dropouts, embossed seatstay caps, semisloping fork crown and the Record 965 decal with the red line running through it. I think the decals on the DT are replacements.

I am unfamiliar with Euro market Bianchis but I believe they use a system where they have several Record models perhaps a Record 955 Record 965 and 975 and they share a frame and just the components make the difference in model.

THis one could have been something like our '88/89/90 Campione de Italia. if the biding does not go too hight $140 or so with shipping might be OK for this.

+1, though I was going to compare it to a US market Bianchi Brava. The headset is Shimano New 105 which, if OEM, would place the frame 1987-1989, inclusive. The Cromor decal would eliminate 1987, leaving 1988 or 1989. Cromor, Gipiemme dropouts and lack of front dreailleur hanger indicate a mid-range model. If the OP does acquires the frame, I may be able to determine the exact year via the serial number.

Thanks, since the bike is in Germany, a European bike would make sense. I am surprised they would have different bikes for the European and American markets.
I so want to rescue it!

Everything is different in Europe. did you ever see the goofy cars they drive? and do not get me started on electrical outlets!

Heather are you looking for a frame only or a whole bike? someone posted on of those "Terry style" Centurians in the are you looking for one of these Cl and Ebay thread. I believe it was a pretty good deal.
