Paging Bianchi GIrl!!!

There is a Bianchi X4 in size 58 on CL! Isn't that your size? The seller is asking a lot but since you are such an avid Bianchi fan, it might be worth it to you. Here is the link.

Isn't that Bianchi that was listed for like 200$ and then someone bolloxed the deal for BG? And now the guy is listing it for like 5 times the original price? If so, no one from this forum will buy it I hope.

thanks for the tip but I have aready seen that one. I am suspicious of the size headtube especially the space between the pumppeg and the DT lugg looks rather small for a 58

For what it is worth before ebay it was on CL here in Boston at $200. I actually went and saw it, didn't know what it was (it looked really rough), and thinking two bikes not in my size didn't make sense at the time, I bought the SLX Sannino he was selling that was in way better shape (same size). It was once I posted an inquiry about what the bike was on BF with a link to the CL posting (I'd been curious about it as it looked so unusual), with no intention of buying it, that BG expressed interest, we discussed through PM, I made arrangements with the seller to pick it up, and in the couple hours before I could get out of work and back to him someone called the guy up and made a big deal of what the bike was and swayed him. Once I was on the road to see him and called with an update he informed he was pulling it an putting it on ebay. So yes - whoever made that call definately did it out of some sort of selfishness of malice or something. Definately not an honorable kind of guy (seller told me it was a guy).

Any Experts on JAPAN made BIANCHIs?

I can hardly find any info on this Bianchi i snagged from a friend for $20 about 16 yrs ago. Finally cleaned out storeroom and started getting rid of stuff? I was like "Why have i been lugging this old bike around all these yrs?" It's obviously way too tall for me...being a 5'5 woman. So i put it on few online local selling sites n got alot of hits. It wasnt til then did it dawn on me, that maybe i had somethung worth lil money. Wrote down all the lil words/numbers written on it everywhere. I noticed a sticker from where the bike was bought, and gave them a call. I adked to speak to the guy who has been working there the longest, n Mike gave me some valuable information: mostly that yhe bike was worth way more than $60 (the most i was offered online). Im going to tk it to him to get a hands-on estimate n what Easy-Cheap-Quick fixes I can do to increase it's worth. Cuz even tho i won the bike rodeo in 5th grade (1980), i no NOTHING about bikes, except hoe to ride one. But i really want to get someone else's opinion/advise besides a guy that works at a bike store in a rich neighborhood. It's not the guy i dont trust, it's the neighborhood of richy rich that often have the perception thst :If it don't look pretty, it ain't worth nothin', that i don't trust.

I'm not looking for NEGATIVE comments from disgruntled, gold-winning cyclists, who enjoy pouncing on those less worthy, unless, of course u want to contribute some worthwhiled/knowledgeable information.

Here's the pics have so far n will add the specific part numbers n names later today. Thx for any input....

Ok well i cant figure out how to even add a pic... Ugh. It wants the URL ehere pic comes from? What the hell does that mean? Cant i just copy n paste...
Anyway, so most parts are Suntour, various parts stamped 'Made in Japan', the long arms going to pedals says 'Custom'(stop laughing!), part of 1 sticker on frame reads '***Mn ***se Steel ***G. Frame T', below seat is sticker w/ army green Phoenix with blue banner reads'Edwardo Bianchi' going across bird n blue n blue diamond above head with SR written inside (i think), has black leather seat, and serial number is GS3006U7. It's painted all white, n tires are 27 x 1 1/2 wo. (What's wo mean?)

You can add pics directly from your computer, just clickon the 'go advance' box at the bottom of the window, then click on the papaer clip at the top of the new window.

Anyway while pics are needed to be certain, it seems like you have a Manganese Steel or High Tensile Steel frame.

If you've been hauling a low end Bianchi, that is too big for you, for 16 years I think I grab the $60 and say thanks. It likely needs a good tune up and other things like tires and tubes and the buyer will be spendiung close to 100 to get it in shape to use.

Yesiam, what you have is a 1983-1984, Japanese manufactured model. The carbon-manganese tubing, in conjunction with the 27" wheels indicates upper entry level, though we'd require more details and pictures to determine the exact model. BTW, w/o means wired-on, the style of tyre with wire beads encased in it, to hold it onto the rim. They're commonly called clincher tyres, though that is a misnomer.

Based on the very limited information, I'm not seeing a lot of value, maybe around $75 fior average, basement/garage condition. After it's been overhauled, probably around $150-$175. You're probably going to spend more than it's current value for little if any increase in your profit. Re-post it for $100 and settle for $75.
