The Bianchi Specialissima is undoubtedly one of the most iconic racing bicycles which the Milanese brand has ever produced. Mostly produced in the famous "Celeste" paintwork, the Specialissima has been developed in different versions which stick out for unique manufacturing and attention to detail. 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 SLX tubes and differed from other contemporary models for a few, refined details:
- a sloped aero-fork crown
- aero-shaped seat stays and fork blades
- "V" shaped brake bridge
The Specialissima X3 frameset was then subsequently used as the base from which the Bianchi Centenario model was developed. The very typical fork crown, rear triangle and brake bridge of which 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 and decals. Here we see a rather rare ivory pearl paintjob. The bicycle is fully equipped with a Campagnolo Super Record groupset.
Whether for collectors or Bianchi lovers, this Bianchi Specialissima X3 is a nice riding and beautiful bike.
Suitable for all Eroica events worldwide.
