1986 Bianchi Sport SX 57cm

1986 Bianchi Sport SX 57cm

I may end up selling my Bianchi after some car issues so can anyone give me an appraisal on how much I can get out of this build. Its currently at my LBS getting cables and tires installed.

Thanks for the help.

If your Bianchi had original components, I'd say in the $200-300 range, at least here in the conservative Midwest.

But a question: Are you planning on a full modern Dura-Ace build for this puppy? I'd advise against it if you're spending anything close to retail for the groupset. Most folks don't want to pay for an old frame with modern parts unless they're getting it for a song.

Also curious - if you're planning to keep that 10 speed cluster, if you run into any clearance issues. There might not be enough room for the chain to run on the small cog without rubbing against the frame.

Much nicer than the Sport SX I built up with a mishmash of 6/7/8-speed 105 and centerpulls.

+1 to parting it out, though, unless you want to give away your nice DA/600 stuff for less than you could otherwise get for it.

I agree parting it out may be your best option. If the frame was a 23" and 1800 miles closer I would be interested in it.

Part it out...frame is nice...but with the Dura Ace stuff...parting it will maximize return...

The option did come to mind to part out but it will stay as is with Dura Ace 7800. So far it's cost me far less than buying the group whole. Bought each part separately thru craigs, ebay, friends etc.

I just got the bike back this morning and there are no issues with chain clearance even on the smallest cog.

Same size, isn't it? 57cm center-to-center, but 58cm/23" from center to top like Bianchi measures it?

I don't think Bianchi made any bikes that they would call a 57cm at that time but I could be wrong.

There's a middle man I know named "shipping" who can handle the 1800 miles.
