Thanks! That makes a lot more sense. I had asked the owner and he said sometime around '95 but the decals also reminded more of the '80's Univegas.

Edit: Checked the serial, it's a '91!

Those early - mid 90’s steel stumpy’s had the loveliest rear dropouts. Could you guys please post up a few close ups of those dropouts? Pretty please?

Yep thats the stumpy, though I'm not 100% sure about it being an '85. And yes I live in California. It is a lovely rider, though also quite heavy. With the baskets and all i think this thing weighs close to 50lbs!

full disclosure

I am an addict. I can't pass up a bike that I believe I can breathe new life into. In the beginning I tried too stick with certain winners Mongoose IBoc Comp, Univega Range Rover, First Gen Eddie Fisher, Kamikaze Shox and on....
In the first 2 years I had 4 stolen and realized my garage was being watched!!!!
Then I got a beautiful Bianchi frame with Campy crank and BB which I lovingly restored. I purchased a huge chain and combination lock but one summer afternoon fell asleep outside the UC Berkeley campus with my bike and back pack by my side. The chain was in the pack with the lock open to the combination.The pack also contained...(yeh stoopid)
I woke to find my bike and pack gone..
I had had enough.....perturbed!!!
finding a friend with a car we went to every tent city until finally I went to the spot were the XXXXXX hung out
I was extremely reasonable not offering money but offering the same treatment a thief would expect in Saudi Arabia if I suspected....
One week later my bike was chained outside the BART. Same combination
Is this a miracle

Cheers

That's beautiful. Love the color and contrasts. I'll bet it rides fairly nicely.

Slush Bike

Here is the slush bike for winter in a small Ohio town. No mountains but slippery when wet.



Hilarious fenders repurposed from on old Huffy or similar.

Yes it is a really nice riding bike. The fellow I bought it from was letting his son ride it and it got the rear wheel bent out of shape and the plastic bits in the Altus brakes broke so I think it was parked for many years. I'm also surprised how the Avenir suspension seat post works so well. It feels tight and stiff but moves smoothly. I had the bars on a Giant ATX once so I knew I would like them. The Hiland branded stem was an Amazon purchase which also fit nicely. The 2016 ATX was not vintage, but served well as a travel bike for our camper van.

Fresh score today! Really low mileage on this one. Sellers were super nice folks, and they even had the owners manual.

That's a minty looking DB, looks like a '91. Here's my latest project, a '97 RockHopper.

This is the circa 95 Bianchi Nyala I've owned since new. It's currently in the shop getting a new headset, rear derailleur and deep clean.
