Let us know what kind of Bianchi (modern or classic steel) you're looking for or the details of the Santa Rosa model, maybe someone can help facilitate a purchase for you. Where are you located?

Nice. I had actually considered seeing if someone would check it out and send it to me if it was in good shape (which it seems to be) but I don't really need it.
Let us know what kind of shape it's in. Post some pictures, please.

A Course Is A Course Of Course Of Course, Unless...

Classic Raleigh Super Course - $100 (James Island)




"Classic Raleigh Supercourse steel 10-speed bike built in Nottingham, England. I believe the bike is from about 1978.

Not sure of frame size, but I'm 6'4" and it fits me. I don't think it would fit someone shorter than 6'.

Price $100 or best offer, so if I want it, make an offer.

New Gatorskin bike tires (worth $25 each alone).

Great opportunity for somone who wants to restore. Could be a beautiful classic bike for someone who enjoys that kind of work.

Has been kept in a garage, has some superficial rust, but that's all. Bike functions and rides well, and has been a lot of fun. I rode it in 4 triathlons over the past few years, so it's reliable (but don't expect to set speed records, it's probably 35lbs)."

You rode it 100 miles home? WOW, that's trusting. I don't think I've ever ridden a purchase home, even a few miles, not knowing what it might need.

Paint on that Paramount frame looks very thick, almost like PC. And it's been cold set.

The cold setting is sort of irrelevant. Whatever is going on with the head tube near the headset is disturbing, however. Was the headset powdercoated onto the frame?

That doesn't look like headset bits, but whatever it is, there's some weird... um.... "stuff" going on there.

'51 Paramount anyone? Strange description but cool bike. If the poster owns the thrift store it's in, wonder what he paid for it?

And the dropouts/fork ends look like they've been spray painted with that cheesy "chrome" spray paint that looks sorta like chrome when you apply it, then quickly fades to a dull pewter lustre.

Looks like a lever operated Simplex front Derailleur. Don't see many of those. I wouldn't describe it as the "holy grail" though since it's a touring model Paramount rather than the race model which the Paramount name is usually associated. Check those pretty normal seat stays. Still a cool bike, but $5k is ambitious.
