Start of the Bianchi

So today at lunch I’m taking the vintage Bianchi frame (that I got a deal on) to the fancy bike shop to get the headset installed. And I’ll have them pull the bottom bracket too.

I ordered a new Campagnolo Record headset which should compliment the vintage frame well. I’m a bit nervous of course, because there could be issues with the head tube. But if they can get it installed ok, then I should be able to start building up the bike.

I’ll repurpose the Sugino messenger crank from before. Then a new seat post and Brooks leather saddle. Probably a vintage Bianchi stem (we’ll see) and some Suntour or DuraAce brakes. My plan is for a fly bar messenger bike setup.

This is what my vision for the bike is:

Yes, imma do the brown with the Celeste frame. If I’m lucky mine will look much like this one.

More to come.
