As some of you may know, i've been looking for a bike to build up. I've always wanted a celeste green bianchi, and today at the San Rafael bike swap meet, i found a mid 80s bianchi frame. It's celeste green, and it says nuovo on the side. I paid 100 dollars for it.
Did i get a good deal?
I'm also planning to build up the rest of the bike with a shimano 105 grupo, not sure how much that is though. I have a friend with hook ups in a bike shop. I'm planning to spread the buildup throughout several months, i'm in no hurry.
Also, i've noticed there are some small dings in the paint. Is there somewhere i can get celeste green touchup paint?
I'm also thinking whether i should take the bianchi decals off... they look kinda ratty and their design is straight out of the '80s (the ugly lettering). Please discuss.
