Hi from Sweden

Name's Tony and i'm from Sweden.
I just started using an old bike I got from My father when they moved to an appartment. He wanted to throw it away, but I thought it had some special "vibration" to it and took care of it.
It was an old bianchi and I just learned in another thread that it might be a '77 or a '78. Very useful info as I mean to bring it back to life and use it to go to and from work. And in the mean time loose some weight.

/T

Thank you!
Here's the old bike, it's narrowed down to a '77-'78 Bianchi SuperLeggera. Thanks to nice people in the forums!

Hi Tony, a nice Bianchi from an interesting period for the marque. It would be great to have some images of some of the accessories , such as the brake callipers and the derailleurs. A photo of the Columbus decal on the seat tube would be very interesting. What makes you think it's Superleggera? I think they were complete bikes with chrome ends: frames without kit were Specialissima. Stickers to that effect (SL and Sp) I have seen on the top tube.
