I am not sure I would label this as 'rare' but you certainly don't see them too often. A '93ish (need to look it up) Bianchi Project 7, 700c Mountain bike, not a hybrid. This was festooned w/ top o the line Suntour with grease guard BB and hubs.

Nashville TN. $500 Rare Bianchi Project 7 29er MTB 19" commuter hybrid beautiful & solid

Not sure what model Nishiki this is, but the RD is a Suntour VGT-Luxe, and the FD is a Cyclone (looks like first gen from a blurry pic the seller texted me). If I had the time I'd probably buy it just to part it out.

If I was in the market for a tandem, I think this is one I'd jump at. Kuwahara, looks like 7 sp Accushift. Nice shape! Halifax Kijiji.

Its all about the punctuation or the syntax or something. Buffalo, 200 for a mid '80 Bianchi "fixie" Beautiful Vintage Steel Bianchi





54cm Blue Steel Bianchi Limited. Pretty sure it's Japanese made, maybe Italian.

This was my daily rider for years. I had great ambitions to set this up as a city bike. But my wife got a job out of town and she needs to go.

Great bike, needs some work. You will not be able to ride this home. Set up as a single speed now. Needs a tune up. If you're mechanically minded or just looking for a great old steel frame. This is for you.

$200 or BO. Moving to Brooklyn. Make me an offer.

I bought that exact model last year with a wrecked frame just for the parts. I think I spent more than $75. Campy 8-sp for the win.

If someone local wants to go in with me on this, I will pay for the bike, you can have the frameset, I'll take the parts and wheels and pay shipping.

It might be an '88 paramount and therefore a anniversary model but it isn't the model. Also if it is an '88 the brakes (caliper and levers are wrong. The link doesn't work.
