SOLD - Sydney - Bianchi Campione d'Italia

Postby RadioDog » Sun Dec 21, 2008 8:21 pm

Hi all,

Image

It's been neglected in my parent's garage for about 8 years, so they've forced me to do something with my 1998 (I think) Bianchi Campione d'Italia. The paint is ok considering it's age, it does have a few chips, scratches and the like but overall it's still in great condition.

Frameset
Size - 56cm (or there abouts)
Frame - Dedacciai Cro-Mo
Fork - Dedacciai Cro-Mo

Wheels
Wheels - Campagnolo Mexico 68
Tires - New Maxxis Detonator 700x23

Drivetrain
Shifters - Campagnolo Mirage 8 speed
Front Derailleur - Campagnolo Mirage
Rear Derailleur - Campagnolo Athena
Crank - Campagnolo Mirage 53/39
Cassette - Campagnolo, 8 speed

Components
Saddle - Bianchi Concor Light
Seat Post - Campagnolo aero
Handlebars - 3ttt Forma, 40cm
Stem - 3ttt
Headset - Miche
Brakeset - Campagnolo Mirage

$600 ono ... pick up in Petersham. Oh, and it won't come with pedals.

Thanks and seasons greetings to all!

Robbo

Darn, she don't look half bad, if you were in Melbs I'd make you an offer, empty wallet not withstanding.

Good luck with the sale!

Nice!! :shock:

Don't think I can justify another road bike though...

Cheers.

Ooer, those beans look mighty tempting but you can keep the goat ;)

Anyone interested? Any questions? The bike is made in Italy. The paint is the Bianchi pearlescent celeste. As much as I'd like to hoarde it, it's really got to go. So start haggling with me ...

A pox on this bicycle for being too small for me...and me all cashed up with the government bonus and all :cry:

Best of luck. Great price, nice bike. I know the feeling of "well, I'd love to keep it, but...I...just...cant..."

I think you should be ashamed at not riding such a fine piece of machinery.

Get it out of the garage, and make it your Sunday morning cafe ride bike :)
What is it with cycling? 30+ kmh and lycra???!!!

She just never quite fit right. Runs like clockwork and smooth as silk but not quite right size wise.

And don't worry, all proceeds going to a new "Sunday morning cafe ride bike" :D

Come on ... someone's gotta be interested :wink: I might even have a pair of similar vintage Scott clip-ons bars to throw in as well

Is it really 56cm? How much is it worth in your mind?

I always thought it was a 53cm but I measured it up before listing and it's definitely 56cm top and seat tubes.

To be honest with you, I'd love to get a little more for it but it'll need a decent service and maybe some new bolts and bits to replace the ones with surface rusting. And I have spent about $100 on tyres and tubes and bar tape. It's definitely worth more than the $600 I'm asking, I just want a quick sale :)

Dunno 'bout the clip ons, but I'm really tempted.
Any Sydney riders care to hook up with Robbo and check her out for me?

How did you measure to get 56cm seat tube? Where were you starting and end points?

Centre of bottom bracket to centre of where top tube hits the seat tube. Please forgive me if I'm wrong ...

If the point of measurement is the intersect of the axis of top and seat tubes, then you have certainly measured it correctly. 56cm it is.

*sob* she's gone forever. I know I neglected you but, but we had many good kilometres. At least you'll be going to a good home. *sniffle* :(
