Bianchi Pista.....


I present to you, my custom built up a Bianchi Pista.... reynolds chrome lugged fork, stripped the decals, frame 3/4 powder coated "creme", then added decals from 1950's Bianchi , campagnolo record headset, gipieme post, brooks saddle, which was custom trimmed along the lower edge to resemble a swallow saddle more, Nitto b123 drops, sr NJS stem, Truvativ bottom bracket / 165 cranks / and 48t track chainring, Campy crank bolts and chainring bolts, gold high strength track chain, gipieme seatpost binder, Christophe special chrome pedal cages w/leather straps, MKS silvan pedals, Sun M13II rim 32h front custom built with a vintage 1950's BH Racelite track hub, rear Sun M13II rim with Velosteel hub 36h, Continental gatorskins 700 x28c, and finished off with vintage Gem silver bar wrap tied off with fly fishing line at both ends then shellac'd, cork stoppers at the ends. I LOVE it. Rides like a champ...pretty much came out exactly how i wanted it to in my head....modern frame redone to look as vintage as possible, with a combination of old road and track.
