Curious about a Bianchi Sport SX and an unknown Cannondale (80's?)

Thanks for your help. I don't know to much about bikes and I'm curious about these bikes.

First Bike, a Bianchi Sport SX (80's?). It has Shimano Ultegra components. There is a tear in the seat and a few scratches on the frame. It has all the original parts including the original wheels which have been changed.


Second bike is a Cannondale and I couldn't find any stampings on the frame. It has a Suntour Cyclone derailleur set and Royal Gran Compe brakes. Other than that, the bike is as pictured with a few scratches on the frame.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome aboard!

We prefer pix from the right or drivetrain side of the bike - helps in identifying components.

#1 is an 80's Bianchi, most likely Japanese rather than Italian. I can't see the tubing sticker but would imagine it's Tange, Ishiwata or Superset. Brake levers look aftermarket, like Tektros.

#2 is a mid-80's Cannondale road bike, perhaps the SR400. Beer can aluminum frame.

They're both nice rides. Depending on your local market, maybe 200-250 on #1, 250-300 on #2, assuming both fully tuned & ready to go. The usual disclaimers - your mileage may vary, ask your doctor or pharmacist, etc.

That Bianchi has been entirely rebuilt. 600 Ultegra didn't come out until 1988 but those decals preceed that. There's no 1986-1987 CdM decal, so it should preceed even that. Based on the features I'd say it was a 1985 and probably Japanese double butted carbon-manganese tubing.

The Cannondale appears to be a circa 1985 SR500 with new rims or possibily an SR600 coverted from tubulars. In both cases, we can establish the year via the serial number.
