WTB High Quality Italian Frame - 60-62cm C-T

Looking for a high quality (lightweight) steel lugged Italian frame with race / sport geometry. Not all-inclusive tubing below, but generally something of similar or greater quality. Ability to run at least 26mm tires. 126 or 130 dropout spacing. I will be building this up to ride, so does not need to be a collector/NIB/showroom piece. Max budget would be $500 but less would be better! Columubus SL, SLX, TSX

Reynolds 531SL or Pro

Tange Prestige

Super Vitus 980

*edited to adjust the size to 60-62cm based on recommendations

57 CTC is probably 58-59 CTT.

You might want to inquire of the seller some more pics but it might fit what you are looking for?

@Bianchigirll or @T-Mar (and others) might also help with their expertise in Bianchis.

hey thanks, I did some research on ‘Formula One’ tubing and had a tough time figuring out what exactly that was. I also found this listed (and maybe still for sale) but tubing, spacing, etc. not listed. The Tommassini probably would fit me better just based on the measurements.

The best guesses are SL main tubes and Cromor (which I love) stays and forks.

Sadly the true contents of Bianchi’s Special, Formula One and Two tubings may never be known but I found the Formula Two frame I had to be a very good rider. I’ve had my eye on that Vittoria and I sure it to use great rider and will be spectacular with lots of silver Campagnolo gear or some Suntour

BTW, whilst it might not be Italian that Miyata in the for sale section may be worth a closer look.

when your bored just search ebay for Columbus 59 and see what’s there. That’s how I stumbled on my fabulous Cornelo.

I could part with this Italian built Bianchi frameset. All signs point to 1985 with a repaint done in likely the late 80s. Their top three offerings were apparently the same tubing and geometry. Columbus SL probably.
61x59ish ctc.
