I thought that's what they were. I've got a set of NOS Seoul 88s I recently had laced. I believe they are just a renamed omega v.

the other bikes look great.

why thank you Mr Mango
I got a frame as gift from a bike shop

nos, max steel, a fine piece, but I fear the cost of sourcing an nos period gruppo would be astronomically prohibitive, as it's a little too big, and all I've kept I justify (poorly) by using, so it's just been sold, and will pay for the dream cx full bike and leave a little change
also got an esa mexico awaiting finishing touches

My 73 crescent pepita... Powdercoated because of a bad reprint when I got it. Sometime in the 80s someone replaced the pedals with superbe pros and the brakes with gran compe campy clones... Everything else is nuovo record. I replaced the downtime shifters with suntour barcons. The saddle is a fujita belt that I went crazy on with a blade... More comfy this way tho.

is this worth it?

Hi all, I am looking to fix up a bike, however, I am not too familiar with certain brands etc.. What do you guys think about this bike as a fixer upper? Can anyone tell me something about this Bianchi bike, and is it worth $30?

this is the craiglist site for better photos.. Bianchi Road Bike 80s

Thank you to everyone in advance.

btw, my bad if i'm posting in the wrong forum..

Your request will get more eyes and a better response if you post this in the C&V What's it Worth forum. It may be worth $30 to you (of course you always offer less and see what he says) but there is so much to checkout to determine the condition and if you'd have to plow much money into it. And is it the right size for you. Maybe you should just research the forum a lot regarding vintage bikes, bike fitting, restoration issues you could face, etc. These can be great bikes or money pits if you're not careful.

It has a lot to do with what you want it for. Best to repost to What's it Worth.

1984 Trek 770 with Super Record. I previously owned a 1983 Schwinn Traveler, but sold it. I bought the Trek from the original owner via Craigslist, who had changed nothing in his years of riding save for the chain. It was in quite good shape considering how long he'd ridden it, but the rear wheel was beginning to crack around the spokes, so I reused the hubs to build new wheels and replaced the Regina compact freewheel with a Shimano from Amazon (Megarange is nice for me, and the Regina for some reason had two 16t cogs). I took about a month and a half to gather materials, tools, clean everything up and replace the consumables. Decided to go with a more flashy color palette (but still 80's). I went on my first long ride a couple days ago, and this thing flies. I love this bike.

pretty ALAN Competition, set up as a FG. Swapped the alloy forks to some more sturdy "forcella originale" from Columbus, converted a GS crank to a pseudo pista crank by mounting it on a modern sealed bb with a shorter spindle. 52/17 is pretty strident, but managable.

Thanks. Indeed very much conversion style, 2008 to be precise, that's when I started converting FG's when the fixie craze started to hit the shores here (The Netherlands). It's somewhat in full swing now.

Mid 1980's Trek Pro Series 560. First road bike and loving it! The rear original wheel the axle was bent, so I replaced it. Trying to go for the vintage-modern look
