Vintage campy biacnchi

info in the ad is limited, non drive side pic, etc. Let's assume its a full campy group.

The tires are tubular. Are you prepared to run them? If you prefer clincher tires, you should factor getting/using a clincher wheelset into the equation. Nice bike, is it your size? It appears (just guessing here) that it's about a 58cm seat tube...I'd ask for size from the seller if you really are interested.

I have 6sp wheelsets ready to go if I were to keep it and I agree looks 56-58 cm by that headset. I may flip it or keep it, not sure, just looking for a value so I can determine if there would be profit assuming I flip.

not alot of profit i would think - but...if you think it'll be fun to ride - at least for awhile - it shouldnt be hard to get your money back out of it - to me then - it might be worth taking a shot here

edit: i should say i'm no bianchi expert and have been known to buy high and sell low

to me the optimal position to be in is when you arent pressured to sell
i have had bikes were i put on CL at a "i really dont want to sell #" and then it sold
if this was my bike in my area - i would probably start it up at around 500
and work my way down
campy is funny stuff though
depending on the exactly what quality group you have can effect the price dramatically

Only (slightly) profitable if you part it out.

I found a 1973 de rosa campy especial for 35 dollars in a garage sale it has nuovo 73 components it had a little rust and the original campy tubular wheels which I changed to bontrager race lites it was a ten speed I changed the cassete on new clincher wheels to a 14 speed its sweet and fast I had it powder coated at my work place by a friend , this old gem flys along the ground ! it is all togeather as fast as my trek 5.5 madone ! but I can ride my sweet madone all day long where the de rosa is for shorter runs like no more than 50 or 60 miles round trip . keep the relics alive they are things of beauty and grace !
