It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

Very optimistic given that they are only £10 an issue and that they are only up to issue no.36.

Nice mag. But hardly rare.

Not sure if this has graced the thread.

Remarkably similar one sold on Saturday for $73.50 http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/251233845835 (feedback shows buyer is now seller)

Must have been too big.

Must of bought it and discovered that not all Bianchi's are created equal. They use to do the full range, Pro level through to K-Mart specials.

I had heard once that a local builder who's surname is spelled in a similar way to Raleigh imported a bunch of low end shitters and re branded them as Bianchis.

Totally. A much nicer 700c Routens sold for around the $2000 mark about 6 months ago. As nice as Routens stuff was, it has nowhere near the collectability of a Rene Herse and the seller is asking Herse money.

I think this was cheap, on checking the highest bidder they have zero purchases? would this be odd or would the sale be pulled?

I would love this!! 3 bids already

I hate it when there's a O buyer bidding. It reeks of fraud to me. Keep driving the price up d***g.

That front derailleur in particular looks very cool.
