Anyway the ad has been removed so someone else got it. And yes I am a bit heartbroken as it has been years since I have seen a 3Rensho track bike in my size and a somewhat reasonable price.
Sharing my love of bicycles with sellers has hurt me more than helped me. Now, I keep internet interactions short and simple and share my passion more in-person if the seller seems like the type to care. Too many times have I thought a bicycle was owned by a passionate cyclist but I end up meeting a storage unit reseller instead.

They came cottered and square taper, I have one of each, the cottered is on a low level, cool older Bianchi and seems like it could have been original but I doubt it.

Would love to trade it for one my size.

Interesting and valid point. I have to change my strategy 100%. I think me acknowledging that I wanted this bike so badly left me in a horrible negotiating standpoint. I will NEVER do that again. Thank you for your reply.

Local sale a few years ago I went to see (but passed) was a very similar Bianchi, it had the cotterless steel Nervar, so yours could be original (and if so possibly earlier).

You may be right, it's 70mm so that maybe points to could be.

Look in a local coop and you will likely find a suitable fork to replace. For the record, never had a problem with the death fork at that time!
Someone should sell a t-shirt with the text "I had a death fork and lived!"

Pinarello Treviso (mid-'80s model) for $50 on NY CL. Bike is north of NYC in Ossining, NY. Bike is listed as a project bike. Set up as single speed, but seller has AND is including original Campy components. I don't usually see bikes like this listed, especially at this price.

Update: SOLD within about 6 hours of posting. I was starting to think nobody bothered with CL anymore. You only see the same overpriced, low-end bikes day after day. Somebody got lucky! I only passed on it because Mrs. C. threatened to hit me on the head with it if I bought it .. "NO MORE BIKES!"

I think it's a 1988, and should have 7 speed w Shimano 600 tricolor. No drive side pics though.
