Greetings all,

Just signed up last week and as a means of introduction I offer my roughly 50-year-old Binachi. It's one of about 20 or so in my bike garage with more to come...

1961 Bianchi Specialissima. Mostly original second owner bike with original paint, decals, cables, bar tape, hoods and straps. Original Campagnolo group including rare second generation 151 BCD cranks and 1st generation record, cable stop, front derailleur. non-original pars include the brakes, Universal Mod 68s, and the tires which are new.

Steven

Wow! :shock: Beauty! And this exceptional condition. Composition of headtube lugs and headset cups is great.
BTW If you don't have enough storage space I can help you!

Thanks to all for the warm welcome. The other bikes in the garage are mostly Italian and American Road racing machines ranging from the 50s to the 90s. I also have a few mountain bikes.

Looks great, be sure to dribble show your other 19 or so bikes through slowly. If they are all as good as this one some folk on here may have heart failure if you hit them all at one with these gems! Looking forward to seeing the others :D
