50t Sugino

I rescued this bike out of a barn. Is it fair to say that this thing is a Bianchi? There is no branding on the frame other than the Bs stamped in on the fork and at the bottom of the head tube. There are no markings underneath the BB, no serial number on it. Any idea why that would be? It had everything on it that you see here other than the wheel set and the saddle when I bought it.
The dropouts (front and rear) are Gipiemme, the bottom bracket is Gipiemme as well.
If you can tell me anything about this thang that would be sweet.

Good find!

ser number

possiblt stamped at the seat clamp area, on both sides. I had a Campion Del Mondo, click on it and see the comment thread, was very helpful for mr. good luck and post what you discover.


can't say that its a bianchi, but I can say you need to lower your seatpost and level your seat. Other than that awesome find man!

ha yeah well i haven't

ha yeah well i haven't ridden it yet. obv. The damn seatpost is stuck too.


Pull the crank & bottom bracket and mount the bike upside down in the stand. Drip a good amount of ammonia in the BB shell so it trickles down the walls of the seat tube to where the aluminum post touches the steel. Leave overnight. Put a shitty saddle on the post the next day and start twisting. Should break loose. Ammonia is the only chemical that breaks the Al/Steel corrosion bond.

BTW yes, that IS the Bianchi B.

Right on
