Trying to Identify this Bianchi...



Hey all,

I'm looking into this bike but my expertise is limited.

The seller called it an "Edoardo Bianchi" 10 speed which obviously was not the name of the model.

Apparently he found the words "Tubi Calibarti" on it which did not help much more... other than the Italian meaning "calibrated tubes"

The most hopeful piece of information he gave was the serial # 2l29075
but upon some more research I realized that even Bianchi is not very helpful with.

I emailed them for more pictures and will follow up if this is not enough.

Thanks ahead of time!

Keep Riding!

if this is a cl or similar offering perhaps you could contact seller to get additional pictures.

It looks like a mid-range model. It might be from the late 70's.

The lack of forged dropouts is not a great sign, honestly I didn't know Bianchi made and stamped frames. The crane RD is neat though. I believe Crane was the predecessor to the Dura-Ace line.
