Brand New Bianchi Campione 00s with Full Campagnolo Mirage/Veloce

Hello hello,
Can someone help post the pictures from my gallery album in this post please?

This Bianchi Campione was stored in a garage for over 20 years collecting dust. Condition is brand new.

Seems to be a 2001 Bianchi Campione with Campagnolo components.
derailer campagnolo mirage
brakes: campagnolo veloce
cranks: campagnolo veloce

Is it rare to have it in this condition?

Is it rare in that condition? No. Bicycles are in the recreational/exercise category, a lot are bought and never ridden. Condition is all about how the bike was stored over the years. Once it comes out of a box, its not new. Even unridden, bikes degrade over time. Tires get dry rot, grease dries out, etc.

Trying to sell on ebay is a lot different than successfully sold. In the end, your bike is not new, it's used. Now it may be in excellent condition, that is a plus for sure!

I purchased a nice Univega in this condition a few years ago in similar condition to what you describe --- it was a 50cm with Campy Veloce triple groupset and a decent set of Fulcrum wheels

I gave the gent $275 and immediately stripped the bike and used the components to build a DeBernardi frameset i had recently aquired

I gladly paid the $275 and likely would have stretched it to say -- $325 due to the condition , but no more than that --- it was very nice to have a donor bike that i could re-use almost everything though but Veloce and Tig Welding just didnt add up to a lot to me at the time

If its Celeste green it might be worth $500 to somebody - who knows.

I suggest looking at comps for SOLD items on Ebay to get a general idea for the larger audience that is the world...then look at FBMP for what is might fetch in the local world.

We wouldn't want to steer you wrong with valuations...are you buying or selling?

Pic assist...


As already mentioned, the OP's bike is not brand new even though it might have seen very little use. As a rider, it is a very nice steed but as a collectable item, no so much. The Campy group is not matched, a bit of a draw back in my opinion. The frame is internally lugged and the uni whatever fork is equally of minimal interest to most collectors. To me, the handle bar tape looks to be poorly done and the rear derailleur cable is, again, unprofessional in appearance. Both of those things, though mostly cosmetic, will negatively impact value (my opinion). The celeste green is, indeed, a value feature as it the bike's condition. I might add that the bike is a popular size and will appeal to one of the larger markets.

Condition is always important and the OP's bike is in stunning condition, with only a couple of minor concerns. But an old bike, even a brand new or unused one, still needs maintenance attention. I, personally, no longer trust old tires and 22 years old is old. Nor do I trust grease in hubs, bottom brackets or headsets to be worthy of great lubrication abilities. Simply put, tires and grease do deteriorate over time. The same can be said for brake caliper blocks.

Is it rare to be in its condition? I would say yes but not super rare. Again, as mentioned, lots of road bikes were purchased with great "get fit" intentions in mind. Sadly, or not, depending on one's point of view, lots saw incredibility little use and found their way into early storage. Sometimes storage was excellent, allowing the bike to reach today in pristine cosmetic condition...



sometimes not so much...




I am not sure if the OP was seeking a value appraisal. Were I buying the bike, I would pay $500.00 in a heart beat. Were I selling the bike, I would ask for and hold out for $1000.00.

...Bianchi marketed all levels of bicycle over the years. The top of the line ones are pretty nice, if you get them roadworthy and put new rubber and bar tape on them. Yours is not one of the top of the line ones. We just had a long thread in the regular C+V about how people offer low valuations here, without sufficient consideration for all the factors. I confess I have zero interest in the brand newness of a bike that sat in a garage, gathering dust for 20 years. It sounds like something that will require at least disassembly of all the component parts, and reassembly with new grease. And probably new rubber all around.

It was sold as a Tri bike, which means it was not marketed or designed for the same audience as the classic bike people who are looking for one of their better models, made from Genius, or whatever was trendy in 2000. And Mirage is sort of a middle of the road package.

But good luck with the sale of it. I honestly have no idea what the value might be to someone looking for just that thing. I don't even know who that would be. Triathlon guys generally don't look for older tri bikes, they want the newer, lighter stuff. And the old bike guys don't look for them, because the real race bikes are more fun to ride. By the year 2000, Bianchi was selling a bewildering array of bicycles, including full suspension MTB's, aluminum, steel, and CF road bikes. If you Google up the 2000 company catalog pictures, you can get an idea of where this bike sits in the hierarchy.

Here's one from a flipper in my area. And another. And another. All are older lugged frames.

Funny how people who should know better can't spell Campagnolo properly. Add to that the inference that this is or was worth $3,000.00 is beyond the pale.
I'm talking about the third one above, in Fredericksburg.

Technically true. The bike retailed for 1100$ in 88/89. That is 2,717.88$ today. If you include tax, you're around 3000$.

Depends on location, size, and how hard you look. Celeste Bianchis enjoy a celeste premium and a brand premium. Comparable bikes that aren't that color and brand tend to be less.

Savvy buyers will know a bike that has been sitting for a couple of decades will need a thorough service. I am not talking a bike shop tuneup.

Not what I've read. I say that the Bianchi Campione D'Italia was MSRP $550 to $580. The person who said it was Bianchigirll and I'd take her word for it given her experience selling them at the time.

From an online calculator...

$550 in 1988 is worth $1,358.94 today

...a whole lot of bikes back then did not sell for the MSRP, when first they were sold new.
There has been a lot of mission creep in the pricing of new bicycles since then, so maybe it rubs off by association.

y.

You sure? That looks like conventional road geometry and at that time period, tri bikes usually had 650 wheels, a pronounced upright seat tube and the bars to go with it IIRC .

Yours is an older version plus a lot higher model = a lot more value.
