    Scooper is the expert but I'd bet Campy only had one version of those sidepulls at the time and they didn't quite reach down to 700c rims. I'm assuming original spec was tubulars? The frame was...

    Bianchigirll, I think that is a drop bolt to lower the caliper.

    Not enough info. Pics would help also. Value is all over the place, check ebay listings. Condition, frame size, specific Campagnolo groupset, etc., all factor into value. What year is it? Not...

    Curious as to why you would even suspect it might not be legit.

    +1, remove seatpost and examine. Are you using a torque gauge to tighten? Not something to take lightly, if it looks like a crack, have LBS check it out.

    Please don't take this the wrong way but what, exactly, did you search for? I googled gold plated Colnago and it brings up tons of information, pics, ebay and other sales, etc. Try looking again. ...

    It is apparently a Sears L'image. One was for sale in Vancouver until recently apparently. I like the yoked stays. Might be Tange 2, but not sure. Had a bike with Tange 2 tubing with same color...

    For grins I looked at some of the 56cm bikes listed. Saw a Schwinn Tempo listed for $260.00. Big upgrade over your previous Schwinn. Might bargain down a bit, but I sold one in My town a few years...

    Yes, Courier 6, they also offered a Courier 12. Probably same spec with a double chainring up front. Likely has Tange tubing of some iteration, which is good. Has rack and fenders and comfy bars. ...

    Do you have a bike co-op in your area? Buy a new chain and get the chainring and freewheel from the co-op. Should set you back $15.00 for the chain plus $20.00 or so for the other stuff. Then...

    That's not a beater in any sense. Decent frame, not the lightest, but who really cares. Nice saddle and stem upgrade. Ride the heck out of it.

    P.S., what else would you be wanting to upgrade?

    Date the components and the frame is probably within a year or two. Beautiful frame. Components decent, although not high end. Somec was a smallish builder back in the day and put out quality...

    I didn't say it wasn't original. Your first post lists Miche front and rear derailer. I was merely pointing out that it was Simplex, not Miche. It is a fine FD, but if it were mine, I'd want Miche...

    What you have is as it says, hand built in Italy. Reparto Corse means built in Bianchi's racing shop. It is likely a step above the standard pista offering. Don't know for sure, but I would wager...

    Gorgeous bike, however the front derailer is not Miche. It is a Simplex. I would look for a period correct Miche and replace it. Love the chromvelato paint. Nice score.

    That is a very tall frame. Better be 6'2 or better. Agree it looks to be an old Schwinn.

    $85 total, or per bike? Can't go too far wrong either way. Figure new tires and complete lube for each. Are you capable of hub and bottom bracket maintenance? They look in nice shape and would...

    I assume returning it isn't an option? Did you buy to keep or flip? One dent doesn't equal failure but it will scare off most buyers or cause you to discount. I'm not an engineer but it occurs to...

    Be more specific. What is wrong with cranks and derailers? Under no circumstances should you consider a repaint or even decals.

    Yes, they have a clue. If the bikes were different, better models they would bring a premium in that condition. I saw a supposed NOS Schwinn Varsity on my local CL and the guy wanted like $500.00...
