Bianchi...

Postby Timo » Sat Oct 02, 2010 11:55 am

Hi all, some of you probably know my Bianchi project from other forums but for those who don't I present it here. I aimed at a modern bike with a nostalgic touch: classic celeste and tutto Campagnolo. My old 1997 Bianch Mega Alu frame, new Mizuno fork and new Pro Stealth handlebar have been painted by BCP in The Netherlands and I build up the bike with a full n.o.s. 2007 Chorus group (including bottle holders, pedals, seatpost and even seatpost clamp), Record headset, Bora wheels (with custom white Campagnolo and celeste Bora decals), Flite saddle and Vittoria tires. On a set of Nucleons for now and with the brakes, cables, chain, celeste bar tape and pedals still missing, here's what I've done so far...

They did an amazing paint job.

That bar/stem is sweet!

Nice job!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

I second the bar/stem being sweet. Makes the bike imo.

What a great project! I love the attention to detail. And there is no such thing as too much celeste. :thumbUp:

Well done.

Now could you please do the world a favour and make 200 more and give them to Barloworld?

Good point, Barloworld Bianchi's are hideous. Perhaps I should do a similar project with a classic respray for a modern Bianchi frame :)
