Several years of scrounging and collecting bits , nearly finished ( I've got to glue the tubs on ). Sort of a late 80's team replica but I guess the bars/stem should be 3ttt and the rims Ambrosio. I made a dogs dinner of the bar tape :roll:

Lovely. Retro bike rules stipulate that you'll need to drop it off round my house though if you don't set about recreating that photo immediately :D :D

Thanks for the comments. It is SLX ( '89 I think but Bianchi serial numbers are a bit of an unknown ). Certainly later than '86 as it has the World Champ decal. C-Record throughout except for the seat pin which is probably Athena or Chorus. Rims are a great pair of Mavic SSC from someone on this forum. Cobalto calipers. I've been after a headset for some time. Bought a couple off ebay but they were trashed. One had been fitted with a different size of bearings so it had two rows of dimples in the bottom cup :D .

Looks very good. Is it original paintwork?
