Well here it is. It used to be purple with decals but someone Kryloned over it which would be pretty easy to remove and re-clear. So what do you guys think it's worth. Also it is in perfect riding order. I just had new tubes and cables put on it when I was riding around on it for fun. The saddle sucks. First bike I have ever ridden with paddle shifters on the downtubes. I guess it is like a jockey shifter on a motorcycle. Fun but kinda sketchy at times.

what kind of dropouts and forkends does it have? I think we saw this bike elsewhere recently. the component mix looks odd or a Squadra shimano LA, 'Z' brakes/levers SR crank....


OH sorry the calipers are Diacompe yes? what are the levers?

The forks and frame are all stamped with B and say Bianchi so I know it is a Bianchi but I have no clue what year model or value.

Best way to date any bike is to look up original component codes at the vintage Trek site.
