Hello Two Wheelers !

Hello Bikers!
It's been oh about a million years since I bought a bike, but I am / have been a marathon runner and go fast car guy seemingly forever.
That said suddenly at a local charity bike used sale I tripped into this 97ish(?) Bianchi San Remo for $100.
Here it is after a four hour clean up:

Then feeling soooo suddenly Italian I couldn't pass on this 65ish Specialissima:

Will keep you posted on how things progress.
I need to get a bike configured for some races / events. I have a Ducati CF frame but will, presumably, need to add wheels and brakes.
Stay tuned for that idiocy.
cheers!

Hello airbil, I would guess your San Remo is older than 1997, but I could be wrong .

If you haven't already found your way there, you should head for the Classic & Vintage forum and ask the experts. But, the San Remo has downtube shifters which means it's probably more like 1987.


Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
