    Please Help Identify My Bianchi

    Hi all,

    First time poster, and newbie bike builder too. Here goes...

    Came by this 'Bianchi' frame cheap. Seemed like a good frame, lightweight steel alloy, nice butting - built it up and it rides pretty well. But still got that itch of whether it is truly a Bianchi, and if so what model/year. Didn't come with any components. Just frame minus forks.

    Frame received newly, and it turns out poorly, resprayed (paint is discolouring and coming away quickly).

    Decals seem to be a mix. Columbus Gara Tretubi, bianchi dacals and 'head badge' decal all suggested possibly a mid-90s Vento? But no model number on the top tube (604, 606 etc).

    However, also has a Campione Del Mundo Colorado Springs 1986-87 deal on the down tube.. which is confusing.

    Serial number hasn't helped at all. C56 on drive side of BB and 0350 on non-drive side.

    Anyone got any ideas??

    Cheers!

    you might try the bikeforums.net.

    the only thing i can help with is your cockpit. your rear brake housing is way too long and the cable should be routed on the other side of the stem/head tube. look at pics online. the cable should only be long enough to turn the wheel as far as it goes in both directions without binding.
    Yossarian: don't worry. nothing's going to happen to you that won't happen to the rest of us.

    Post it is the classic and vintage section of the website above. There are a couple of people who post there that have a lot of knowledge on these. Gara is mid level Columbus tubing. The components may help identify the bike if they are original. Campy Veloce was used a lot on 90ís mid range Bianchi. 8 speed would put it early to mid 90ís , 9 speed would be a little newer.

    If it fits you that bike will make a nice rider. Enjoy!

    He says he got the frame only.

    Resprayed frame without original fork could mean the bike was in an accident.
    Whatever decals they slapped on after the respray really mean nothing.

    Sorry to say, but I think you got shystered. That paint is just all wrong. Even if it were a real Bianchi, I agree with Mackers that it was likely in a crash. I would just move on from this frame.
    Wake me up when it's alarm green.
