The mid 1980s were an exiting time regarding Bianchi's top class models. Some of the finest Constructions left Milan in these years to shine a celeste light onto the world. There is the Specialissima X3, then - of course - the Centenario anniversary model and the Specialissima X4. But there are also the high class models which left the Reparto Corse workshop with their details that derived from the regular series.
Our Bianchi Specialissima Reparto Corse is an absolute top class bike, equipped with the last edition of the legendary Campagnolo Super Record groupset, thus making it a close relative to the former Superleggera bikes.
Details like the fork crown and the seat stay caps are clearly borrowed from the Specialissima X4 as are the head lugs. Also the the bottom bracket shell had been used on some X4 bikes before. Interestingly it had originally been designed for the Centenario, but the word 'Centenario' has been filed off, as well as the '19' of '1985'.
The tubing differs from the X4, as it has classic round shapes and is Columbus SL.
The pantographs on the groupset are as nice as they are restraint: Just a simple Bianchi lettering on stem, right shifter and chainring.
The handlebar is covered with the typical Almarc leather.
A classic clean top class Bianchi with beautiful details and a legendary groupset.
Checked and serviced, the bike is ready to be ridden.
