    Info about 1986 - 1987 Campione del Mondo Reparto Corse rare celeste color

    My dad is the original owner of this bike and it has been in storage for over 20 years and it is in perfect condition. It is 100% original even the brake pads say campagnolo (the tires are new but I have the originals). It says 1986 - 1987 Campione del Mondo Reparto Corse but i do not know anymore than that. I was thinking it could be limited because it is a metallic celeste color that i have never seen before. I do not know if it has chorus or record components either. Could someone tell me anything about this bike?

    Thank you.

    Oh and the wheels are tubular mavic gl 330

    Components are C Record. Campione del Mondo = World Champion. Reparto Corse relates to being built in Italy. Great looking bike.

    Thank you. But how can you tell that the components are C Record?

    I've been a bicycle mechanic for a very long time. I also rode those components back in the late 80's. The 4 arm cranks with the hidden bolt and the rear derailleur cage are the dead giveaways.

    And its 1st Gen C record too!

    All you need now is a C Record Seatpost and some Delta brakes to complete that sweet Bianchi.

    Ride it with pride!

    Super nice bike. Your Bianchi is probably one of the top models of that year due to the better paint and chrome. I purchased a 90's Bianchi with all that chrome and same pearl Celest paint from a friend years ago. Even has the top of the line tubbing (for that time) EL-OS. Thats a keeper!
    Can't chrome carbon.
    Yes, you can call me a slightly opinionated retrogrouch.

    I would say that if the components were sold off in parts; it may bring in just over $1000 for that alone then the frame is another story.
    I wouldn't be surprised if you got another $750+ for that.
    Browse on eBay and you will see what they are going for. Have a look under "completed items" and you can see what sold and didn't and how much.
    I wish I had the coin to offer you for the whole bike.

    How many miled did your dad put on her? He kept her in good condition, for sure.

    I was very tempted to buy a Bianchi in that exact colour. It was a Campione d'Italia absolutely mint condition too. It was going for $485 CAD, good deal?

    To the OP: Very nice bike, indeed. even looks to be my size. Hope you find it a good home if you're not going to ride it.

    Could have Cobalto brakes instead of Deltas. 1986-87 was when Campy pulled Delta 1 and sold Cobalto until Delta 2 were offered..

    Doesn't look like Cobalto's from the pics. they should have white O rings, for a start.

    what type of steel is the fraemset? it should be on the sticker on the seat tube.
    and what are the drop-outs - campagnolo, gippemme?
    is there pantagraphy (engraving) on the top of the seat stays and any other places? i think i see "bianchi" in cursive and i can see the bianchi eagle on the fork crowns.
    and one final thing... under the bottom bracket should be some numbers - what are they?
