We need bianchi girl to chime in, but, with the fork crown, I -think- it's an X-4? Doesn't look like it has its panto bits, but at $500? Yeah - if that were local I'd be on it.

Yup, that's the Argentine X-4. It does have the panto bits, including the panto headbadge.

I don't think you udnerstood my comment...

I mean the cranks, panto'd deltas (which I believe came on this model) stem, and, I THINK, seatpost. I'm by no means a Bianchi guy, nor am I overly familiar with the x-4, but I think x-4s had elaborate engraved parts.

Gotcha. It seems there were more photos last time this one was listed, before they pulled the ad, and all details checked out against this:

The wheels are replacements, and I can't see the shifters, but they look distinctive. Maybe [MENTION=20650]T-Mar[/MENTION] knows what the shifters are. If they are Shimano, then the rd is likely a replacement.

The brakeset looks like Campagnolo SR v2.

I bought the exact same bike recently to abscond the Turbo saddle on it. I'd say it's a great buy for 125.00. I got mine locally off eBay for less than 100. It's a very spartan lugwork and finish, not fancy at all. Someone with a collection wouldn't want it, but an entry level CV buy or great rider.

I've seen those Arctic Cat Stellas sell at high dollar amounts too. I guess it is because of their uniqueness.

That was posted before I thought I emailed the seller but I don't ever remember getting a reply I would be interested in knowing just what size it is

Super clean all original Bridgestone RB1 road bike. Size 54. Very collectible and sought after.
Substantial price drop, if anyone was holding off for that reason.

Sawed up De Rosa. I don't know if I can ever do that. It does make it quite functional for travel. $949 with a day left.

Ha! Just saw this one this morning, myself. Considered it, as I could forgo shipping and drive to pick it up, but I am tapped out at the moment.

Seller mentions stress cracks on down tube by head lug...that plus mismatched wheels sets off warning bells to me. Parts may be worth it if local pick up. Just my 2 cents worth.

I'm pretty sure that's a Record du Monde, which is roughly translated as "Schwinn Varsity". The forged dropouts are there to trick you!
