For Sale 1986 Bianchi Specialissima X4


Retro Newbie
Time has come for me to part with my beautiful Bianchi X4. Owning and riding this machine has been an absolute joy but, with a heavy heart, I need to move a few bikes on to raise money for another project.

Dated late 1986 due to the presence of the modified centenario bottom bracket shell and the inclusion of the 1986 world championships decal.

Unmolested Columbus SLX frame with original paint and decals. A few small touch ups and few scratches comensurate with age, but overall paintwork is in excellent condition with no dings or dents and everything is straight and true. A truly stunning bike which is a pleasure to ride.

This is just too precious to post, so it's either collection or I'm willing to drive up to 100 miles from the Vale of Belvoir (Leicestershire) to deliver or meet, for cost of fuel.
