What Type of Culumbus is this??

Hi!... ok, so Three of My Bianchi Bikes all have Columbus tubing... they all have this same sticker that appears to be kind of generic... what "grade" of columbus is this?

I'm just curious since all three are the same tubing...

Here's a pic of one of them...

What model is that? I have always wanted a Torquise Bianchi. the tubing is custom drawn for Bianchi. I think it might be something like a SL/SP/Alle mix but I have nothing to base this on other than SWAG.

Here is what Bianchi has to say in their '85 catalog. the Formula tubes came along in '86ish and Formula 2 in '88ish. I am fairly certain your bike is a '87 model whatever it is

Hi, thanks! It's a Trofeo. I have two trifeo's.. This one is higher end with all campy and frame engravings (the stickers are under the clear cost to protect them (this is factory), it was all campy but has been upgraded (by me) to half campy and half Dura Ace (pictured with tiagra but its now dura ace) the other trofeo is pearl white (Modolo brakes and suntour spirit gearing, but it's now a SS)

The third bianchi is a ? Campaign D'Italia ? Something like that... It was Celeste green with full campy, but it's now repainted light blue and is a fixie with Full Dura Ace 7400...

All three are Bianchi Formula Columbus Tubing...
