1970's Bianchi

I don't know much about these, but I am told it is a 1970's original. All the equipment is Campi. Derailleur is Nuovo Record. The asking price for this is €550/US$600/GB£400. Seems a lot and I have the feeling always that with Bianchi you are paying extra for the name.
Any guidance?

For a mid to late seventies celeste green Bianchi with full Campy Nouvo Record group suggests, to me, that the asking price is not out of line. Value does depend on many things, of course, and knowing where the bike is located would add to or detract from the estimated value.

Anyway, were I in the market for such a bicycle, I would not be uncomfortable with paying the price or, better yet, just close to is. By the way, look at the top of the rear derailleur for two digits. Those will indicate the year the derailleur was made and, probably, the vintage of the bicycle, also. You can double check by removing hub lock nut and looking at the two digit number there, just for confirmation.

Hope that is a help.

Of course depends on the market, but around here, it would get that money since it is Celeste, with pretty good paint and Campy.

What's not to like about a celeste Bianchi with NR components? I've paid less for similar quality bikes but this is a reasonable price.

Looking at the photos, only the derailleurs and hubs are campy. The brakes are Universals and the crank Gippemme (sp). $600 seems a bit high but its a pretty nice bike, I'd seriously consider if I were in the market. Bike also has sew-up tires so be sure you are cool with that.

I think 600 is fair, so make an offer. More than likely, he will accept 525.00. At that point, you have a nice bike for a decent price.

Great bike, I love bianchis, Campagnolo Nuovo Record definitely got my attention! Great bike for a fair price, definitely see if the seller could go lower.

Ride it first before you make a offer to make sure you are happy with the ride. Quite often there are little things you cannot see from pictures that you can use to knock the price down to a more reasonable level. But if it is just a wall hanger you want, you can probably pay the asking price and do OK.

Worth it.
Could you get one cheaper? Probably, if you're patient. But you can ride this one now...
Plus who knows how long until you find another you like that fits?
