When it comes to vintage bicycles, there a few things as iconic as the famous "Bianchi Celeste". Indissolubly connected with the epic victories of Fausto Coppi and Felice Gimondi and others, the Bianchi paintwork has become a legend through the years.
Many of you out there may have already experienced, how L'Eroica events are literally packed with "celeste bicycles". They are - as proven through the popularity in such events - really sought after by vintage bike lovers around the globe.
This Bianchi Specialissima Superleggera shows perfectly the typical Bianchi charm regardless its age. In 1981, when this bike was produced and sold, the model with Campagnolo Record parts was one of Bianchi's top models - still with a classic flat fork crown. The frame is in great condition and still sports its original paint. The parts with their milled details and pantographs are in a nice condition, too!
If you are looking for a genuine Bianchi bicycle to take part in cycling events as L'Eroica, this Celeste beauty won't disappoint you!
Great racer for great rides!
