80-81 Japanese Bianchi Professional

After doing some searching, I realized I had a Japanese Bianchi. I bought the frame new and assembled it when I was a kid. I went with the Ishiwata frame to save money. After reading some of the various comments regarding these bikes on the web, I would have to agree that some of the Japanese bikes might be better than the Italian counter parts. Anyway, here are some photos of my bike. I put the sew ups on for the full shot but normally run clinchers. The bike is full Campy and weighs just less than 21 pounds. If you look close, you can see the drop outs are Suntour PRO. The bike is amazingly efficient and out coast all of my friend's bikes.

Nothing wrong with Japanese made Bianchi's. I don't think Bianchi ever made a bad bike in general. They had a few low end gas pipe bikes i've seen here and there but the majority are really good bikes.

I agree nice looking Bianchi.

One morning you wake up, the girl is gone, the bikes are gone, all that's left behind is a pair of old tires and a tube of tubular glue, all squeezed out"
