When it comes to vintage bicycles, there are few brands which are as well known as Bianchi, Italy's oldest manufacturer still in business. Indissolubly connected with the epic victories of Fausto Coppi, Felice Gimondi and many other riders, the Bianchi bikes have become a legend.
As many of you out there may have already experienced at Eroica events, vintage Bianchi bikes are pretty popular and beloved. Bianchi lovers from all over the world are at large at these events. And there is always lots of talking about the different models, may it be a very typical one or one that just does not fit right in, as far as the catalogues are concerned - just like our Bianchi Reparto Corse Road Bike.
Some details such as the cut out bottom bracket shell hint that the frame has been made for Bianchi's Reparto Corse division - the department which was responsible for special racing bike builds. Then it has the unusual combination seat stay caps and fork crown known from Campione del Mondo 12V and head tube lugs with nice cut outs on the sides.
This Bianchi is equipped with top notch Campagnolo Super Record and Nuovo Record components, some of which carry the pantographed "B" symbol. The 3ttt cockpit also has Bianchi pantographes and the bike is completed with equaly fine parts like Nisi Contach rims, 28-t Everest freewheel or NOS Larcia saddle.
Very fine road bike in iconc celeste colour.
