55cm Bianchi Sprint S Classic Italian Road Bike c.1978



The bike that ticks all the Eroica boxes. This celeste green Bianchi is the Sprint S model from 1978. Perfect for any of the classic cycling events in your calendar, it's 100% Eroica compliant, with external non-aero cable routing, down-tube shifters, toe-clips & straps, plus original tubular wheels.

The paintwork is original and still in great condition considering its age. Parts are a typical mix of Campagnolo Valentino, Universal brakes, and Bianchi's own chainset. Finished with classic Velox Tressorex cloth bar tape & Vittoria Rally tubs. It's ready to turn heads on those rocky white roads.

As with all our bikes, it's been fully stripped, inspected & professionally polished & re-built. The frame is straight & true without any dents or dings - please inspect the photos for cosmetic condition as we photograph the bikes so you can see the exact condition of the bike before purchasing.
