Has anyone ever found their “holy grail” bike but it was on the other side of the country? And you didn’t know anyone there?

If so and you bought the bike. How did you do it?

I ask because I found an almost grail bike. It’s the correct model, size and vintage. Just not color (beggars can’t be that choosy).

Cheers

Lots of people here do that, all the time. You can look here - "The Facilitators" Thread - Post here if you're willing and able!
You can also ask on this thread, or make a thread looking for help. There are BF members pretty much everywhere and they tend to be a pretty helpful bunch. Doing a deal long distance can have some pitfalls and shipping can be pricey, but if you are looking at your "grail Bike" these are just obstacles to be overcome. Clear information/good communication will be your friend.

There is a facilitator page on the forum you can ask for help. Which side of the country are you looking for help wirh? I think there are plenty of people that are willing me included (left coast southern California). If it was grail bike, I can see you spring for the $$ but the shipping cost for me typically is the turn off.

IdahoBrett In addition to facilities you find here, you might find a bike shop which can pack and ship your almost grail bike.

I nabbed this one this morning. I don't know Bianchi all that well so I am trying to ID it; should probably make a post about it.

I disagree. Its real. But, the decals are an older set. Those are the proper cable guides from 1979, as well as the BB with the winged "C" and the lugs didn't have the hole cutouts after 1978. Maybe the fork had rust, and was fully painted, but it has the right profile.

Its a real Cinelli, just not as vintage as the decals portrait.

Huh, well its not an SC which I guess I should have specified, so what year and model do you think it is?

I don't claim to be an expert but I do know an SC has to have the iconic seatstay treatment which this one does not.

I don't think this is any Cinelli we normally concern ourselves with if it is one.

It has a vintage SC decal which aside from being very wrong is blatant fraud, even stupid IMO.

Just went back and looked at the pics and there is no clear picture but looks like it might have the classic Bilatto brake bridge?
