The Bianchi Specialissima is undoubtedly one of the most iconic racing bicycles which the Milanese brand has ever produced. Unmistakably Bianchi for the famous "Celeste paintwork", the Specialissima has been developed in different versions which stick out for a unique manufacturing and attention to details. Just as the Bianchi Specialssima X3, a rare model released in the early 1980s and sold for a short time. The frameset was built with Columbus SL tubes and differed from other models for a few, refined details:
- a sloped fork crown
- aero-shaped seat stays
- "V" shaped brake bridge
The Specialissima X3 frameset was then subsequently used to build the Bianchi Centenario model, whose very typical fork crown, rear triangle and brake bridge were basically adopted from the X3.
This Bianchi Specialissima X3 arrived at Steel Vintage Bikes in original condition so we decided to preserve its authenticity by keeping the original paintwork, decals and parts. The bicycle underwent a full service and worn parts such as chain, tyres, cables and bar tape has been replaced with new, yet style matching ones. Regarding the components, the bicycle is fully equipped with a Campagnolo Super Record groupset.
Whether for collectors or Bianchi lovers, this Bianchi Specialissima X3 is a must-have. Suitable for all Eroica events worldwide.
