Bianchi Record

The s.n. for the Bianchi, at the top of the seat tubing is 45961.
Any idea of the year of fabrication?

Very interesting bike.

I'm thinking either late 1950's, or early 1960's based on the lug work.
@Bianchigirll?

I saw on-line something similar, with the same head badge, 1963 made.
The bike is missing the rear wheel, it was on a training machine.
The derailleurs and shifter are Huret.
The bars, stem and brake calipers are replacement, as the pedals are newer Shimano 600.
But for 10$ it worth the 25 miles trip. As i got a bonus too: a 1985 Schwinn Super Sport for 25$.

It sounds like an excellent deal for a pile of fun!!!

The Universal calipers may well be original, but the Weinmann brake levers (I think) are probably replacements.

It's definitely pre-1970s, based on the serial number and location. Both the 2nd generation Huret Allvit rear derailleur and Universal 61 brake calipers are era appropriate and indicate no earlier than 1961. The Allvit got redesigned for the 1969 model year and Bianchi continued to use the integral headset until at least 1967, so all I can definitively do is eliminate the 1st and last years of the decade. However, an educated guess would be 1964-1965.

In addition to the Weinmann brake levers, the Avocet anatomic saddle, SR stem and Shimano pedals would be replacements.

I have an inexplicable love for those old Rekord Bianchis. Cool bikes.
