Sometimes you just need a bike that can take it.
Good description for much of my vintage assemblage. Not all of them but most.

Just a couple mid late 80ís Bianchi

Iím aware that both bikes are not the highest model of Columbus tubing but the Bianchi Formula Two frames are great riding frames for a daily riders... Both in very good to excellent condition... the red Giro is in immaculate shape. Very similar bikes, both mid-to-high end level bikes... just one has a full Italian Campagnolo groupset and the other is full Japanese Shimano. I love them both... which do you prefer?

Red 1986 Bianchi Giro (my sunny day bike)
52cm
Full original Campagnolo Victory/C-Record Groupset with 3ttt Handlebar/Stem/Seat Post. Original white Bianchi Stella Italia saddle and Ambrosio 19 Extra Super Elite wheels.







1988 Bianchi Trofeo Argentin (my daily rider)
50cm
Full original Shimano 600 Groupset with blacked-out Forks and 3ttt Handlebar/Stem/Seat Post. Fizik VS saddle, Celeste Lizard Skins, and black Ambrosio 19 Extra Super Elite wheels.

Nice resto mod.

That SP is a Campy record that was original to these, you've listed it "generic".

Hubs are close to original spec as well.

If the S/N is there it/we can tell you exactly when it was made.

this weekend I just came across a Waterford W-13 frameset....made in 1996 in tribute to the P-13 it only has ~1000 tender miles on it. Looks stunning. I'm starting the build this week but will take a few weeks for sure, hand picking parts now

Well you have it right, J=Sept, 9=1969, 22= 22nd frame made that month.

Normally the shift cables exit the bar tape at the same place, wherever you decide that is, the other thing is to anchor it securely to the bar with something strong so it doesn't jack the bar tape around down the road.

Again, very cool, I love Paramount's, have 5, here's the 58, just for fun.
