Bianchi Folgore, and vintage fenders

I don't think I've posted pics of this bike before, if so my apologies. I love the look of this bike, while a little crusty, it looks like it was put away for years. I wanted to show the fenders I just purchased, comparing the colors to the old bianchi. I know celeste colors changed over the years, that along with years of age, make for a difficult match. the fenders are missing the small front section. I know a lot has been written about bianchi celeste. this is just a comparison

Well that's a fine bike. Congrats on finding proper fenders, a difficult task. Do you have more pictures to share? Flickr perhaps?

Also, one very specific question, how many teeth in the rear dropout?

Is that a bell, or an anti roll away device on the NDS seatstay?

Fabulous Bianchi. I’m not sure correct year fenders would have been my first concern but……l.

That shifting is crazy.

the old bianchi sports it's original fenders, the other fenders just received from. feebay I was just comparing color and patina which is what my rambling post is about. bought the fenders for the right bike that might come along. then we're back to color and patina again
