Bianchi with Super Record...

How much do you think this old Bianchi is worth? The frame is undamaged but there is rust near the brake cable guides on the top tube. There is rust on some of the components but the Campy stuff looks pretty good. The Matrix wheel set shows little brake wear on the rims, suggesting that the bike did not see much use. The abuse appears to be storage related. None the less, I have been keeping my eye open for some Super Record stuff, although I really don't know why as I don't have a bike to hang such a group on.

Anyway, what value would you place on this crusty old steed..?

I would say $150-200 if you really want it nice bike but pretty rough a lot of work for sure yet there looks to be enough left in the parts to be worth while and with some work the frame should clean up nice.. Interesting that the drive train looks to have a lot of wear yet the wheels don't I would suspect the wheels are not original.

Matrix was Trek's in-house rim/wheel brand, so those are definitely not original. And are mid-range. Mix of decent to good components, but lots of work needed to make it all good again. Unless I really needed a project I'd pass at anything over $150, and hesitate at much over $100 -- but the derailleurs cleaned up are worth that alone, so... Is it your size?

I got the bike for less than a box of beer. I have already harvested most of the components. The Campy Super Record derailleurs are in very nice shape. The wheels are in good shape. The Modolo brakes are a mixture - good levers, rotted hoods, some corrosion on calipers. Seat post is exc. Ofmega crank does little for me. Stem is stuck thanks to someone rounding out the hex key hole. Been there before and I know how to fix it.

Anyway, the frame is cosmetically challenged and a bit small for me, so its going to find a new home.

You did very well. I paid $100 for a set of second generation SR derailleurs with some other bits thrown in . That was a couple of years ago and I think parts have held up price wise better than complete bikes. I would agree that about $150 on the bike but more parted out.

I've seen box wine in the U.S. but I don't think I've seen box beer. Is this a Canuckistan secret Bob and Doug were keeping from us?

Well, that crusty old Bianchi produced a pretty nice harvest. Super Record transmission, Mavic bottom bracket, Matrix wheel set, Modolo levers (calipers are rough), Campy Barcon set (forgot to take a picture)...

Sorry I'm late to the party but it looke you have a sorely neglected '86 Trofeo, with as mentioned replacement wheels. With lots of elbow grease it should be a great rider.
