Hello from Hawaii.

Hi, I'm originally from Seattle and since moved to Hawaii for college. I started out doing some mountain biking back in Seattle with friends, but have now taken up road biking.

Here's my bike, an old Bianchi Nuovo that I purchased from a close friend and we are in the process of restoring. This is a picture after we stripped and repainted the bike. The paint was in pretty bad shape before. Yes. I realize we painted over the bottom cup on the headset. It was too rusty to leave unpainted. I intend to replace the headset as soon as I can afford it. Also, I removed the bar tape because it was in poor condition. I am undecided on the color which is why they have not been rewrapped. The toestraps were also in pretty bad condition, and so are gone in this picture. They have since been replaced. The rest of the components are in relatively good shape.

Hi swif, your Bianchi looks pretty good for being repainted. Are you planning on returning to Seattle eventually? I'm in Kent, by the way.

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