1987 Bianchi Vittoria not in catalog???

Hi,

I'm obviously brand new here so I've been searching the hell out of the forum archives finding great info! I found a very clean looking 1897 Bianchi Vittoria, almost completely original, for a decent price ($350) so I've been looking up as much info about it as possible. But I downloaded a pdf of the 1987 Bianchi catalog and the bike isn't in the catalog! Can anyone help shed some light as to why that would be?

Thanks!

I have several bikes that did not show up in the catalog, including some high end ones. There are a variety of reasons, including catalogs being printed well in advance of actual production, so plans often change. Basically, a catalog is out of date the moment it is sent to the printers.

I have no idea, I am brand new to road bikes!! I've always been/always be a Mtn Bkr, just decided that a vintage road bike would be a great way to get around, save $$ and get me to stop driving 1/2 to go places, hahaha!

Where would the Vittoria fall on the list of bikes from Bianchi? Is it below the Volpe?? Please enlighten me, as I am eager to learn ; ) (...please take that with absolutely no sarcasm, I really don't know **** about road bikes, haha)

The Vittoria would be an upperend bike and normally had CampI components on it. It would be above a Nuovo Alloro but below a Giro.

I can't recall if the Vittoria was a '87 model or only '85/86. It most likely has a Bianchi Special or Formula 2 tubed frame.

It would be well above the Volpe in the lineup.
