    Bianchi ? newbie to the folding

    world.do not currently have one ,but before the end of 09' i feel i will ,i'am leaning more to a vintage one,the reason being,i would like to have a Bianchi in Celeste color,did Bianchi offer one in this color? preferably a 1970's or 80's year range ,i own a 82 Celeste Bianchi roadbike ,and would like a folding bike to match it,if i cannot find the correct color i would still like a bianchi,i can always paint,i guess my question being, are the Bianchi's pretty easy to come by?and worth my $$ to invest in this brand?i know the roadbikes are awsome..

    I'm willing to bet money that that Bianchi is a re-branded Dahon Helios, or perhaps a cheaper version of the Helios, since it does not have a replaceable derailer hanger, just like my Dahon Yeah.

    You're looking at a fairly recent bike in that pic.

    I am not familiar with Bianchi folders at all; I think they are popular in Japan. From what I have seen, all Bianchi folders are re-branded OEM folders.

    I agree, looks Dahon .. Bianchi were selling Birdy's and Reach Racer's in celeste.. I made an attempt for the celeste Reach a couple of years back... I was a year late apparently .. no joy..
