Bianchigirll will be along momentarily to fill us all in.

in the meantime...this is a base model from the mid-sixties called Strada. these things are quite heavy and "dead" in their ride. not a sought after cycle.

photo nr. 9 shows a closeup of the Simplex y-adaptor chainwheel mount. this is an aid to dating.

one plus is that the machine looks to be nearly all original, save for the brake levers.

do hub barrels read "bianchi" or do they read "simplex?"

good job with the pictures.

I think it might be early 70's because of the brake lever extensions, not sure they were around in the 60's,

Ok I see I was mistaken, the brake levers are a later addition, 60's bike

Hello Btslay41,

if your aim is to maximize gain the best route wouldst be a part out. the wheels could be cut up with the rims and spokes commended to the scrap bin. hubs enjoy a modest collector value; this would have been the greater if they were marked with the name of the actual mfr - simplex. the fact that their plating is kaput reduces the salability and value however.

the ambrosio stem and bar set along with the universal 61 brake calipers are both readily vendable.

some fittings, such as the sheffield pedals are near to valueless.

two other commonly seen colours for this model were rootbeer flambouyant and red flambouyant.

your pictures do a good job of assisting readers to assist you.

photo nr. 11 helps to narrow dating. the los angeles license decal reads an expiry date of 1966. a bicycle license term at this time for los angeles was three years so it is likely machine's original purchase was made in 1963.

best wishes with the bike.
