Here's my Bianchi- I've been harboring this a few years. Its equipped with a Campy Valentino on the rear with a Gran Sport-style on the front. Campy hubs; I replaced the Campy Quill pedals seen here to make it easier for my GF as its actually her ride. The original Nervar Sport crank has been upgraded to an alloy Nervar; the original suffered a broken BB spindle. Rims are Mavic 'module E2' and the spokes are double-butted. Despite all that I think its a gas pipe frame but it sure rides nice! I gave it some wider gears to handle the hills in the area. Brakes are/were Universal 55s with Modello levers; I broke down and put a Tecktro on the rear which really helped out. I have the matching celeste air pump which didn't make it into the photo.
