Puch Mistral frame/fork, made by Bianchi 57/58.5, $199+shpg

selling this Bianchi-made Puch Mistral frame and Bottecchia all-chrome fork since I concluded that it's really just a bit too big for me, plus I really don't need another project !
This f&f has been covered in another "Puch Mistral" thread and T-Mar offers that it's most probably made with a "superset" of Columbus SL with the down tube and chainstays SP (typical Bianchi practice, in spite of this having an SLX sticker.
Original paint and graphics, this has numerous chips and scratches and some minor rust speckles on fork chrome but looks pretty nice from 10 feet and the metallic green is very rich and satisfying (for you 'green bike' fans!) comes with with the sealed bearing FSA headset and Shimano BB7400 bottom bracket, bottle cage bolts (2 sets), BB cable guide and chrome pinch bolt, chrome on the Gipiemme dropout faces and the drive side chainstay, the fork has Campy forkends. takes 700C wheels and recessed brakes.
It measures 22.5" (57cm) C-to-C and 23" (58.5cm) C-to-T with a 22" (56cm) top tube, 126 rear spacing (I believe, but will re-check) and Italian BB threading, no dents or structural damage that I can see, and I had this stripped bare and shot some framesaver into the tubes, all threading is good.
$199 plus shipping, local pick up in SF Bay Area is welcome














Send me a PM with any questions or specific photos wanted

No, not really since "resistance is futile", after all.

Thanks to the Mods for helping me re-up this old listing, it had some "tire kicking" but is still available and still at the old pre-Covid 2019 original price!
Ask me any questions here or via PM.
I have a bike-box at the ready to ship this in (with some modifications and plenty of padding), I expect it would not be over $35 via BikeFlights to ship to most any ContUSA address.

This bike is sweet but I’m with post 2. Sometimes resistance is not futile. But it does get you a free bump.

How is this still up? If I had space for another bike I would have already driven down to SF to pick this frame up...

UPDATE: there are two interested parties that have gone farther than "tire kicking" (what, no tires?).
So I think this will be selling to one of them (but ya never know).
Thanks to all who asked about it and you who just wished well, will update if/when the deal is done.
