1981 Bianchi Campione Del Mondo

I initially posted that I bought an 83 Tipo Coursa as verified by Bianchi, but today I received the bike via fedex and upon unpacking I found the bike is a 1981 Campione Del Mondo with record all around, goes to show you even the experts can be wrong. Although I was really looking forward to the Tipo, this bike is right in the middle of the year range I was searching for a Bianchi. Below are a few pictures and a link with more if anyone is interested. The overall condition of the bike is much better than I expected and as soon as I get tubulars ordered and glued on I will be able to test ride.

Gorgeous bike!

I will soon have a 1987 "Italian Ice" Pinarello Asolo w/Dura-Ace and Shimano 600 brakes. Needs some new decals.

I forgot the link to the album. There are a few more pictures and possibly a bit larger. I will post more to the album as I go. Thanks for the compliments.

Wow, that is absolutely stunning, and I'm not typically a Bianchi fan! Did you buy it on eBay? The seller deserves kudos for doing a superb packing job!

I did actually catch it on ebay and negotiated a decent deal below his BIN price and I requested to have it packaged by a bicycle shop. I am still amazed at it's condition. I have the right tretubi decal and NOS campy hoods ordered and have to order tubular tires. I think gum wall veloflex tires will look good on it.

The brake cables belong behind the handle bars not in front.

That looks like the next model up from mine (see signature). Very nice!

I suspect we have the same tre tubi frame, but mine came w/ Ofmega cranks and hubs and Modolo brakes.

Long have I been a Bianchi fan and that bicycle is absolutely lovely. I would ride it in a heart beat if it were my size. Nice going and enjoy that wonderful old bicycle.

Phenomenal shape.The quintessential Celeste bike, it looks perfect!
Are the brake cables really supposed to come up behind the tops? I didn't know that. Seems kinda acute.

Wow, that is beautiful. I'd most likely crash it as soon as I tried to ride it because I wouldn't be able to take my eyes off of it.

i love celeste.... are you sure it's not a repaint. that condition of paint on a bike that old is pretty hard to come by. Every celeste binachi from that era that i see has crappy paint, it seems like there's always a little chipping here and there or bubbling under the paint and rust.

Nice bike. IMHO, a 1981 Campione Del Mpndo is better than a 1983 Tipo Corsa, especially in this condition.
