3rd Bianchi in less than 3 months?

I don't think I am out to collect Bianchis, but I just have to get it if the price is right. Here is my third Bianchi in less than three months. This one is a light pink Trofeo, vintage 1980 something that I haven't had a chance to find out more about it. Campagnolo shifters, FD and RD.

Nice Bianchis. The new one is an '86 Eletric Rose Trofeo. You don't see many of those Formula 1 frames mostly Two. I wonder what the difference was.

If that is going to be a keeper I really recommend replacing the brake blocks for some new Kool Stop Modolo blocks.

Great advice for any bike.

I own two Bianchis, though one is a frameset I haven't built up yet. My Volpe fits me like magic. I don't even understand why it feels so damned good. It's not light, and it's not quick, and these are two qualities I usually want in a bike.

According to Wikipedia, Bianchi is the longest continuously running bike company. They must be doing something right.
