Hello!
That sure is sharp, all it's missing is a leather saddle to match the hoods

Yup, not all Bianchis are Celeste in color.

I like the frame colors and chromed fork! That saddle does need to go unless it's perfect for your bottom...

Ride quality is smooth as silk. Very happy with it but it is not my size.

It looks exactly as my wife's bike did when I brought it home from the bike shop in 1984. Her's is blue with gold decals which after 28 years is faded almost away. I put a triple crank set and long cage rear derailleur Miche pedals and an SR seat post on it over the winter and now it is back to a Dura Ace crank and the original Sun Tour arx rear derailleur. Also the saddle was changed until we settled on one she liked.
