WOW! Looking very very smart.
What a transformation and has turned out such a lovely replica.
You've certainly done a great job.

Why you think so - think it's ok ... 1mm +/- to left ot the right

sorry but problem is, in the meantime that the headbadge is under a clear coat
so I can't really correct it without destroying the livery

Ah it must be the photo angle/shading, looked like the bottom was a bit to the right. Apologies

:facepalm: ... but be perfect is impossible without exact measuring and marking before - normaly I used the "natural light axle", which will shown by a glossy tube
to find and adjust the stickers for the right place on a tube ... wait and see the final bicycle ... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

simple white Elite

WOW! That looks beautiful.
You have done an amazing job. The transformation from what you started with, which I didn't think was a bad looking frame, to what you have here is testament to your eye for the fine detail.
Love it.

Best looking Bianchi I have seen, unicrown forks, anatomic bend handlebars, bonded frame and downtube shifters, beautiful blend of late eighties components with the technology that was just emerging at the time.

Pat
