Help identifying a Bianchi frame

Hey everyone, I've recently purchased an older Bianchi frame "Campione Del Mondo" I believe is the name of the frame as well. On the head tube what I believe is the serial number "4B29370" is printed. I know that Bianchi serial numbers aren't really understood, but does the 4 mean it's likely a 1984? The only original component still on it when I got it was a two part campagnolo pump bracket, if that could help date it. I've posted a couple pictures but could post pictures of any other part if it would help

Thanks a ton!

Can't really help you on year or model, othe than its from the 70s or 80s, but its not a high end Bianchi. The eyelets for the fenders would not have been on the high end racing models, but its a nice frame in good shape. I wouldn't repaint it, the paint is in pretty good condition.

That must be older than 1984. Do the dropouts and fork ends say "campagnolo"?

Also, is the sticker on the down tube (near the head tube) a tubing sticker? What does it say?

Thanks for the quick responses

The dropouts do not say campagnolo

The tubing sticker on the down tube says "Tubi Bianchi Calibrati 1 - 20"

I do like the frame, I'm by no means interested in flipping. Just a nice frame that I'm gonna enjoy

The frame is a Rekord from the mid 70's. It was the low-mid line Bianchi depending on the gruppo. I believe they are straight guage or perhaps butted main tubes and about 7lbs and change for the frame and fork.

It's no Specialissma but still a very nice riding frame, and worth building up with a Nuovo Record gruppo and a nice set of wheels.

Bianchi's from the 70's are pretty rare in the States. With good 70's period parts that would be a really nice and somewhat unique ride.

Here's link to a catalog page showing three versions of this frame built: Rekord 748, Rekord 746, and Rekord 745. You want to build it up like the 748!

Hi,

I'm afraid I'm coming some years late to this thread, but I've got also a Bianchi Rekord 745 and I'm looking for information to know which original components did this model have. Unfortunately the link that Otis wrote is not online anymore, or at least my computer can't not open this website. Does anyone of you still have some of the information or an alternative link to that website?

Thank you very much in advance!

Hello maestroinpatio and welcome to the forum!

The forum has had other discussion threads on the Bianchi Rekord 745. You can use the forum's search function to bring them up. To know how kitted one would need to know a model year; they kept evolving.

The unmarked frame ends on the subject frameset are likely Agrati "CORSA RACING." Frame constructed with Agrati bulge-formed head "AM" serie nr. 000.8046 and Agrati seat lug serie "EXPORT."

I had an earlier version of the Rekord shown in the photos. The one I had came with the red decal set in the older script. If memory serves, the derailleurs were Valentino, brakes were Universal 68, cottered crank, Record saddle, and the wheels came either clincher or tubular, I had seen them both ways. Mine had clinchers.

The subject frame is a 1974 Rekord 74. It was club racer designed for tubular tyres. The frame is straight gauge, hit-tensile steel. Correct build includes Campagnolo Valentino Extra derailleurs and Universal 51 brakes.
