1980 bianchi

Any idea what this Bianchi Piaggio is worth? Says Bianchi Superset on the seat tube & "Professional" on the top tube. Running gear is SunTour Super D. Finish is fair.

that would be SunTour Superbe, of course. Frame is made in Japan.

great looking Bianchi. I saw this yesterday but wanted to wait until I had a chance to research it a bit. are you certain about the year? the style of the 'Bianchi' decals and treatment of the staycaps looks more like an '84 frame and I think this model is the 'Professional"

what ate the components? Crank, Brakes, Pedals and Hubs? what size is it?

I'm not the owner of the bike and so I'm not certain about the year, but yes, the model is the 'professional'. Frame size is 22". Unfortunately I don't have the component specs, but seem to remember the crank was stamped 'Aerox'?

AH a SR Aerox crank, that sort of seals the ID part. '84 professional DiaCompe, New Grand Compe 400 brakes, Suntour Superbe Pro, hopefully it still has the Sprint hubs.

I really hate to give valuse because they vary so much by area, condition and what you want the bike for. if this was near me and fit I might pay as much as $350 or so, but would certainly rather pay 200 - 250. while this is a nice it is as you stated is not an Italian columbus tubed bike and has no Campi on it. if you are looking for a great classic Bianchi I would persue this bike. if you are just looking for a steel frame to modernize or build into a SS/FG I would look elsewhere.

also I don't see much room on this bike for flipping. (unless of course you are picking this up from a neighbor for $50)
