I just bought and fixed up a nice bike for the wife's cousin-in-law. I believe it is a 1999 Veloce X3. This is the "before" photo

I have since put on a shorter stem, removed the dork disc, overhauled all the bearings, trued the wheels, replaced the cables, tires + brake pads and adjusted the deraillers. It is a very nice bike that rides and looks new.

I really should have an "after" photo.

Personally, I never really got too into Bianchi because I don't dig celeste, but this one is sort of a pearly celeste. Sooo Pretty in the sun. And, it is *all* Italian. It is surprisingly light (a hair over 19 lbs according to my luggage scale) for a 14 year old steel entry level bike.
