57cm Unbranded Bianchi Badged Vintage Road Bike Frame

✓ Original vintage frame - built in the 1980s
✓ Suitable for historic cycling events such as L'Eroica
✓ Thoroughly checked over & photographed in detail
✓ Worldwide shipping

A very nicely built 1980s road frame with some high end features. Though branded as a Bianchi we doubt it is one, the minimal internal brake routing, vertical dropouts and shot in stays all point to a frame built for racing, the down tube ovalises at the bottom bracket into a purpose made lug which is designed to increase stiffness too. The fork supplied is a new old stock chromed one that suits the frame very well.

If you're taking part in L'Eroica or a similar vintage event, this frame is of the correct age, so you won't be disqualified for being a rule breaker!

The frame's been carefully checked by one of our mechanics to confirm the alignment's correct and there's no damage to the threads. If there are any minor issues worth noting we will do so in the overview section below. Please take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition of the frame before you buy.
