The Official Bianchi Celeste thread
The color Celeste, probably one of the most famous colors in Cycling. When you see Celeste you think, Bianchi, it's been their flagship color for a long time now. Most people love it, some hate it, for those that do, you suck.

Post pictures of your Celeste rides.

I'll start with mine.

My found in a back alley Bianchi Rekord 848 in "as found" condition...

My mid seventies Bianchi Sprint in cleaned up but otherwise untouched condition...

And, though not a Bianchi, the color of my Torpado Super Racing is listed as celeste...

1 Attachment(s) not a Bianchi, often heard comment in passing " I thought that was a Bianchi. " Color listed as winter mint in the catologue. Hey, the wheels are Italian ! Ambrosios roll nice.
Seriously, waiting for the Bianchi blessing to come my way. Be more then happy to post again.

My '54 Campione del Mondo. The most beautiful bike I currently own and have built up I think, maybe. It is an older restoration and not a rider, at least not yet, as can be seen from the tires. It is pretty much completely original except for the paint and decals. Not sure I really like the blue bar tape yet. I'll probably do a full photo set on this sometime soon, after a little servicing and cleanup.

My soon to be '83 Specialissima. In 83 the Specialissima was the frame only version of the Super Leggera. I have all the pantographed parts for a full Super Leggera like build.

I don't like the color itself, but I like the way it makes a statement. I like the way Bianchi takes a bad color and makes it beautiful.

These old Bianchis are the best, thought the new ones are terrific, too. My vote for #1 is Sante's, and blue devil gets my vote for #2.

BlueDevil63 06-18-12 07:19 PM

Sante's is indeed spectacular.
