I have the exact same frame hiding in a box 8) from memory as investigated a while back and poor memory

Not an x4 due to no engraved markings on the frame & rear brake bridge.

Bianchi used a basic SLX frame that covered various models during late 80s early 90s for them to be VERY top model coming from there factory they will have campag drop outs. Gip dropouts are again on lesser model (still SLX though)

My conclusion ended up being a bianchi mondiale slx

show some pictures of your frame


yep it sure looks more like 'mondiale' than x-4 or centenario
