*the blue pictures are the bike when i bought it. it was covered in surface rust and was taken completely apart for the rebuild.*

the bike was recently tore entirely apart, cleaned up, glass bead blasted, powder coated, polished, and rebuilt...

green tape was removed for help twine. she rides beautifully. its a good start. plenty of room for improved components. full shimano 600 group. its pretty much a sex machine.

some more changes after the pics...

That thing is gorgeous. Very well done.

Great color!

Very nicely done. How was the powdercoating process for you? Does it obscure the lug detail? I have two or three bikes I'd like to powdercoat.

process was good. lug detail

process was good. lug detail was okay. the stamped "bianchi" on the frame and "b" on the fork arent as pronounced as they were before but i highlighted those with brown paint afterwards anyways. i had mine clearcoated to protect the powdercoat as well. the only thing that was obscured was the serial number on the bottom bracket.

i definitely recommend it. i was very happy with the results. make sure you get it done at a good place and they watch out for and plug the threads, clearances, and holes on the bike.


It came out great!! Nice color choice, too! (Maybe leave a "before" picture up to show the progress?)

thank you

what kind of tubing is the frame? I can't make out the stickers in the pics.


its the cr-mo... its a japanese-built bianchi

added a few more pics to help

Right on! The Japanese make

Right on! The Japanese make great frames. I had a Nishiki with Champion 2 tubing that handled like a dream and was extremely light. I really like the fork crowns on your bike, should come out quite nice.

"Track bike"

So I'm just wondering: in what sense is this a "track bike"?

its not...

mistaken tag fixed... my bad
