Hey,

Is there anybody out here who can help me sort this out? For years I had this old roadbike hanging around in the basement. It's candy apple red, lugged frame, looks Italian to me, probably fabricated in the 70's/80's. It's got Columbus decals here and there and B's on the fork and seatstays (see pictures).

My main question is which brand is it? Benotto? Who can help me out? Thanks in advance!


Greets,
Mike

Looks like the Bianchi "B" but I can't quite sort the model...

I would also say Bianchi, even the number on the top of the seat tube points in the Bianchi direction.
