Restored bikes

Hi there wileyone thanks for the reply I'm looking to buy my first Bianchi I really like the look of the Bianchi tsx, with the chrome forks and chrome in the back. If I can't find complete bike maybe if I find the frame, is there someone that can build one with nice parts. Do you have any leads or any suggestions thanks

I saw these guys at the toronto international bicycle show. If you're looking for an absolutely pristine rebuild, that's what they had there - if you don't have a frame yet, they had turnkey restorations at the show - maybe the best I've seen.

Their site doesn't show the vintage bikes, but that's the card the guy gave me......

The site does show some seriously nice new bikes built like the vintage ones - thin tubes, lugged frames, quill stems, horizontal top tubes.... might be cheaper than a full restoration.

A buddy of mine recommended this shop, I haven't had a chance to visit yet as it's quite a ways from me but might be worth checking. Toronto Bike Repair, sorry can't post the URL apparently my post count is still too low.
