This may not be the best forum for it but it's the one I most frequent. Can somebody here facilitate in Boca Raton, Florida?

I don't know Bianchi well, but I am not entirely sure this is a "super leggera" as advertised.....

Does this fork look bent? I asked a few months ago on this thread about how to see bent forks and I am still trying to figure it out.

I looked at a bunch of other Preludes online, and unless they all have the most slightly bent forks (they don't), your fork is just fine. Every company is different in their fork blade curving, and some curve profiles look less confidence-inspiring. To me, with what I've seen online, you're fine and the bike is good to go.

Nice job on finding the balance point for the bar "stand." How long did that take to do?

I think it is. Looks like an ‘89 and the top three models that year, including the Super Legerra had the same frame/fork with SLX tubing and Gipiemme dropouts. Not too bad a price if the frame and parts are in decent shape.

See if @miamijim or @shoota know someone near there??

It's not the Somec or Pogliaghi? That Somec is my size but not what I need and sort of overpriced.

The ‘88 was SL and had a blue line in the decal. This is an ‘89, same group but SLX frame and red line on the decal.

Schwinn Paramount

Listed as a 1973 but I think that's a bit early and the wrong model Paramount.

Wow, do you have a link to the ad for the Pog? Looks snazzy but I searched for "pogliaghi" and can't find it

Actually, it's for this bike.

Ad copy: "I have a vintage Bianchi road bike all Campagnolo parts ready to ride asking $375 obo no Lowe ballers I know what I have so if ur gonna low ball don't bother"

Er, right, ready to ride? Notice, rear QR and hub is out of the dropouts, there are no brakes or cables front and rear, Gipiemme seatpost, not Campy, Campagnolo NR crank but missing the crank spindle bolt and dust cover cap, Gipiemme Moser panto ring (on a Bianchi?). This is ready to ride condition?

Who needs brakes on a racing bike? They'd only slow you down.

Cheap Tenax framed Schwinn. Weird they mention quick release hubs when the rear is bolt on.

Depending on the model, the TTT post was likely stock. But I agree this far from ‘ready to ride’.

Here is another ‘89, 90, SuperLeggera. Unfortunately the wheels and drive train seem to have been swapped out.
