Thanks. It's actually the B17 Imperial (the ones that Brooks wanted several people to try out). I have found that the hole make a BIG difference in allowing a high saddle to bar drop without any discomfort (I have the regular B17 as well and this wasn't possible). It just as comfy as a Brooks Pro with this set up. I did 60miles on it yesterday and not a spec of discomfort.

That makes sense. Any word on when the Imperial will make its production debut? Seems like my dream saddle, as I like a big drop AND full sit bone support.

Why the right hand lever on a polo bike? You left handed?

The lever looks just about as wide as your bars in the second pic.

Good stuff.

I dunno. The kickstand and rear reflector could probably stand to go, and new toe clips look like a good idea.

The magic of photoshop (:

I'm leaning towards going to my guy at my local paint supply store for the shop I work at to see if he can somewhat color match the original color to respray. That color is a beauty and I'm between changing the color / keeping it. And yes, correction, the tubes are done for, not the tires. But the tires are somewhat weather cracked.

Edit: I just picked up another classic 80's Bianchi. Pics later.

Thanks for the compliments on the bike everyone.

The tires are done for, that's for sure. I just inflated them to take a decent picture. 5 minutes later, they were back to being flat. The frame has a lot of rust spots and so does the chain, crank, and especially the cassette. I used it as is for a while but I decided that things needed to be replaced.

Converting it into a fixed gear and it's primered for new paint. Just got to go to work and use the gun to
spray on a fresh coat of new color (haven't decided yet)

That's really too bad. Next time you want to ruin a frame, just buy an off-the-peg fixed gear. It'll be cheaper and won't require damaging a beautiful original paintjob in order to give you the perfect trend-mongering machine.

that bianchi is an ok bicycle at best. don't get me wrong, i love bianchis and own one. however, its a low range hunk and perfect candidate for conversion. its yer bike, do whatever the hell you want w/it. run it fixed and keep the brakes, since it has braze on guides on the top tube, which should either be ground off, or have a nice functional brake cable running through them, plus you can keep the cool paint, and just patch the rough spots. trend mongering? what is that?

New wheels! 36h Phil SLR 3x laced to Mavic OP Ceramic. I use the IRO in all weather and I wanted to have a brake surface that was better for the rain as well. The surface definately stops you faster and I'm amazed at how much lighter and faster the bike feels now. With the A-spoke I rode a 50/17, but with the 50/16 I have now it feels the same. Crazy how stiffer wheels make it easier

I'd like to know the groups on those two bianchis.
I have a thing for vintage road parts.
it's like a disease, and the only cure is more gold arrow (and other vintage road bits)

Yeah, I look at newer Bianchis and do not get even close to the same feeling as I do about the 80's models. Those are the best bikes. My girlfriend rides a late 80's Sport SX in full celeste. It's one of the lower end ones but it's still the best looking bike in the house.

It's true. You could get a cassette with a 28t to try to hide your weakness, but anything that looks like it's got much more range than a corn-cob looks kinda weak too.

I like Volpes. If I were to get something with a triple it would be a Long Haul Trucker complete though.

cant wait to see photos of the build.

i talked to the previous owner today. he bought it in 2003
rode it 3-4 times a week for 8 months, and then over the winter
he built up another bike, and left that bike as is until he dropped it off with me.

it had literally just been sitting in his basement for nearly 5 years.

I hope the "temporary parts" includes that ugly fork and all those spacers.

EDIT: The fork itself isn't ugly it just doesn't match the bike at all.
