Is my Bianchi a Rekord 74? 748?

Hello all! I need some help here with the identity of my Bianchi, which I'm planning to restore. The Serial # on the head tube reads 3G52209

Thanks in advance!

It appears to be a 1973 Bianchi Rekord 71 with several replacement decals. Please provide a photo of the whole bicycle, taken from the drive side.

if the fittings have not been changed out would expect it to exhibit the NERVAR Sport cottered chainset, Campag Valentino gear ensemble, Sheffield Corsa pedal nr. 655,




frame constructed of house branded hi-tensile tubing using Agrati "AM" pattern lug ensemble, head is bulge-formed

Wow... You are spot on! I went to Google Rekord 71 and the groupset matches! Bravo!

Thanks Juvela! Yes you are correct! Nervar Sport crank.... Valentino rear D. The miss matched decals got me... Been search so long on Google with nothing matches.

I have come to the right place!
