Yet another bike, needs some work
well here it is, i went around to yard sales yesterday lookin for something of interest, found a few bikes, almost all were NEXT's and Mongoose, which are prodominantly wal mart bikes. So i shruged em off, then i found this other bike, seems like a road bike or a hybrid, it was cheap at 10 bucks so i picked it up. Looks slightly aged and battered.
It's a Bianchi Broadway, has a Suntour shifter and some no name brand brakes. Has a good amount of surface rust which would be easy enough to buff off, the frame itself is good, no loose paint, has an interesting emblem on the bar where the stem and fork pipe go thru.
Anyhow i'm just wondering if anyone can identify this bike for me? is it a wal mart brand? is it old? is it worth anything? Should i actually put the money into it to restore it to working order? Needs new tires and inner tubes, saddle and post, chain, and possible needs either a rework of the brakes or new brakes all together.
any help would be appreciated, pics on request
