Gary, I have an idea.
How would you feel about having a pic of your Aussie built bikes along the same lines as you have for your Italian display, or if your lense isnt quite wide enough :wink: perhaps you could break it up into states?

Not a bad idea - I'll have to work on it.

I'll post a group shot of my track bikes in the Fixed / Singlespeed Thread. Nothing much has happened there for a week now.

Hi xx86,

In the 90's Bianchi's were again bought into Aust. by a bloke who was a grandson or great grandson of Edoardo Bianchi. He lived in Queensland at the time. The rumour getting around was that he was a bit unreliable and eventually he stopped importing the bikes. I wonder if there is any connection?

Look forward to the MTB photo's as you do it up.

Gary.

Hi Paul,

The Bianchi is a 1982 Campione del Mondo model. A mid-range Bianchi that is from an era when Piaggio (Vespa motor scooters) owned Bianchi. This Bianchi era is easy to date - you can even identify which 2 week period of the year the frame was made. Mine was made within the first two weeks of 1982.
