A Grotty Bianchi Reparto Corse

Bianchi Reparto Corse FrameHere is a rather grotty Bianchi that is, as best we can tell, a 1986/7 Bianchi Reparto Corse product in Celeste with Black fork and stays just like Moreno Argentin’s World Championship winning Bianchi.  Apart from that, there are some slight differences from the World Champ bike – namely very minor differences in the decals and Gipiemme rather than Campagnolo dropouts.

We have created a set of these decals and the frame is off to Atlantic Boulevard for a complete renovation.  The frame itself is very sound – just that the finish is showing the signs of its hard life in the hands of a hard racer.  But then, that is what racing bikes are for!  Racing bikes are tools, albeit beautiful tools, to do a job.  When their job is done, we can lovingly restore them and enjoy them in a whole new way.  The owner is looking to build this up with Campagnolo C-Record with Cobalto brakes – awesome! This classic frame will get a whole new lease of life.
