Not exactly a save .........

...... I bought a (very dirty and greasy) 1987 Bianchi Sport SX from the local co-op for $25. Couldn't pass it up even though it's only a 19" frame. According to the catalog, it has all original components except the bar wrap, and only missing one pedal and the chain. All Alpha 5000 groupset including Diacompe brakes, Sansin hubs, Suntour 6 sp freewheel, Suntour index/friction shifters, Suntour FD and RD, and Sugino 52 / 42 crankset. Made in Japan with Tange DB frame, Sella Italia saddle, Araya 700c anodized rims, and








what look to be original tires that still are holding air. With this great find, I plan to do a complete rehab; teardown, clean, and lube.

Good score on project..

Answered posting on Craigslist showing the Peugeot road frame for sale, with ruddy wheels included with it. Went and viewed it, saw it in nice shape and clean, no chips, hacks or rust. Snapped it up. Researched it and learned it's a sleek model from 1986 brochure. Used Campy Victory crankset, and I never saw its Modolo black brakes before. Seller told of odd size seat post it uses. Hoping to build it to original spec as close as possible. Might Shimano group work better on it, like 105 or Veloce? Thoughts welcomed, thanks.

Diamond in the rough..

No small save IMO, if you're looking for those, you can be hard pressed to find a good pair at any given time.

I'd strip them down, get the black off, maybe sand some of the worst scuffing a bit and clean up for a killer build of some sort.

Given the current state of my bike "herd" I shouldn't even be asking but, what are your plans for this one?
