Bumping an old thread back to life.

Funny to see where I was a year ago! I now have neither of those steel beauties (no steel in my stable anymore!) and have gone to the dark side - carbon fiber.

Mapleleafs-13, were you able to determine the year of your Bianchi? It is one of the few that I've seen with similar frame welds as a Reparto Corse one that I once owned. I thing I narrowed it down to 89-92, but am really not sure.

Nice to see this thread revived - I'm sure there are plenty of others out there who've added Italian to their stables in the past year.

My latest acquisition, 1985ish Spinella (Olympia):

The EL/OS was only made in 1996 IIRC.

Great thread! So tough to pick a favorite... but these two Bottecchia's have to be the nicest examples I've ever seen! Gorgeous!

[QUOTE=eja_ bottecchia;11952683]

I havn't seen any Basso's here, but I hope to add my new addition very soon. I'm dolling her up right now, but it should be ready for pics in a week or two!

Another excuse to get the ALAN out! Tomorrow I'm going for a ride on it's new "daily" wheelset (this crumbling tubular set is only for the pics) - C-record hubs (low flange) on MAVIC Open 4 CD's.

I had this one while ago. A classic but unusual paint scheme I think. Picked up in Belgium but unfortunately too small hence sold...

Very cool.

Boy, I sure have seen lots of top shelf Cinellis lately.

That Colnago knocks me out as well.
