Looking for any info anyone can give me on this Bianchi. Owner doesn't seem to know much about it. Looks like it could use some work, so any suggestions on how much I should offer would be appreciated.

Seems pricy for a bike needs a lot of cleaning and tune up and most likely could benefit from a complete overhaul. Seems like it is an '83 with a DB ChroMo frame and ChroMo fork.


10 Speed Bianchi Limited , 61 cm frame size



Top tube to ground 35"

Perfect for tall guy !

Rear Tire changed last season.
Upgraded rear rim
Racing and original cluster
Suntour V GT Components

Minor paint scratches here and there.
Its an older model but great for Weekend Athlete!
Purchased originally for $ 900.

Rides fine now but a tune up is always recommended after purchase.
Local pick up, sorry no international shipping. Thanks!

How much would you say is fair? I'm attempting to replace my current road bike which is a mid 80's Panasonic DX-3000. If I were to restore this bike would it be considered an upgrade from my current ride?

Not that particular bike:

Needs a full overhaul
Wheelset does not match
Fork doesn't quite look straight.

You know I kept looking at the TT just behind the lug and was thinking something looked odd. Now looking again fot the 10th time I agree the fork looks odd. I would suspect this had a good crash of some kind.

What do you want a bike for? Exercise? Commuting? riding with the kids? If you just looking for something to ride around on the weekends I would check this out. Doesn't seem too bad, some here will poo poo the stem shifters but they work and if you like and really use the bike you can always move them.

My main source of transportation is my fixed gear, though I have a mid 80's Panasonic DX-3000 that I use when a geared bike is required. I'm mainly looking for something to add to my collection that could be considered a step up from the Panasonic. I tend to prefer the older classic/vintage bikes rather than the newer stuff.

The above particular bike is about to go onto its 3rd year of listing on craigslist.

I've got two large frame Raleighs, a Super Course '72 and a Super Course MK II, available in SE Michigan.

I didn't know, I don't usually peruse Detroit CL. I was wondering if this has or had that plastic cable stop on the underside of the DT?
