Bianchi is the world's oldest bicycle manufacturer, starting in Italy in 1885 and still going strong today. Bianchi not only have a long history but an enviable race pedigree too having been ridden to great success by Fausto Coppi and Marco Pantani as well as many more, and they are still represented on the Pro Tour circuit. Often easy to spot thanks to their distinctive celeste paint, Bianchi have a special place in the heart of collectors and vintage bike enthusiasts the world over.

This early 2000s aluminium Bianchi frame and fork still shows the vestiges of an older time before Bianchi started building bikes in Taiwan and modern parts completely took over. Still made in Italy, the Pro Team Race is built from 7000 series alloy for the frame with a 6061 alloy fork, held together with a semi-integrated headset. The frame has braze on mounts for downtube shifters and is spaced for modern 10/11/12 speed groupsets, the fork steerer is standard 1 1/8" threadless.

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.
