just another bianchi.....

I spent some time rebuilding this one and putting some campy on this build, i sold this in september. I usually take photos of all my builds and flippers, this one came out pretty good so i though i'd share with you guys, i know how much people like photos on here.

In case you're wondering, this one was already sold before i could list it, i had a person harassing me for a while for a celeste in his size, and finally she turned up. I've had about 4 celeste's go through my hands this year, this by far was the best conditioned one.

Enjoy!

would you mind terribly if I grabbed a few of those photos to update the images I have of the Modolo Flyer brakes & levers on VeloBase? I'll leave the watermark intact and put the source down as what ever text you wish. Let me know. Thanks!

what's so good about the wheels out of curiosity, is it rare or so?

they are great wheels is all especially since they appear almost unused. MA40s were the hot must have clincher back in the day. they rode great and were easy to change tires on, unlike their Ambrosio counterparts. they were just good solid wheels. people want crazy high prices for NOS Mavic anything these days

Huh?, Modolo "Flyer" brakes?? Have not seen this model before but I suspect it's just another version of their ubiquitous side pull brake design from the 80's. It seems like most of the difference with these mid level brake models from the company were their names and finish/colors. They sure squeezed that design for all its worth!
P.S. Make sure you post the Flyer on Velobase if it's not there already, so the list of brake models from Modolo will be as complete as can be.
