He had also previously bought the bike from an expat who had been riding it for years before that. So I reckon the frame is around 8-10 years old, if it is indeed a real Bianchi frame.
Appreciate any help!
OK so the bike has been stripped of its original components, painted a different color (although we now the original was white, which really narrows it down) and bought second hand in an unknown country from an "expat" of a second unknown country which is where the bike was possibly originally sold.
Looks like an early 2000s alloy something or other. Bianchi has a habit, atleast Bianchi USA anyway, of using the same frame across several models so finding the original ID of this is almost impossible.
