Email correspondence;

I found out as a new member I can't post photos until I have made 10 posts.

I greatly appreciate your help. I have just 3 photos to post but can take more photos if they are needed. I read on the forum that Bianchis were made in Japan for a while and I'm guessing mine was one of those considering the number of Japanese parts on the bike. The part I thought was interesting was the hub on the rear rim was made in France but the rim itself is a Japanese made rim Araya.

Thanks again
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but that frame shows none of the traits of a Bianchi built with Columbus SLX tubing. Is the B on the fork engraved or a sticker? What about the B at the top of the seat stays? Is there anything stamped on the dropouts?
