A tidbit of information that I got from some Bianchi collectors:

Lugged steel Reparto Corse frames were Bianchi's the top of the line models, hand made in their special pro shop just like Raleigh's SBDU shop used to be.

Some of them have a Reparto Corse label.

All Reparto Corse Bianchis from the C&V era with lugged steel frames had Campagnolo dropouts. Those with Gipimiemme dropouts weren't Reparto Corse frames.

Note, not every frame with Campy dropouts is a Reparto Corse.


Don't believe everything you think! History is written by those who weren't there....

Chas. ;-)
