BIANCHI SPRINT - INTRODUCTION

 

I have tried a good number of different procedures for finding vintage road bicycles.  Some methods work well and some work really well.  The first Bianchi Sprint that I came across I almost passed on buying due to the unusually high price the owner was asking.  The second, a considerably older model I believe, was given to me for free - sort of!

There is nothing really special about either of these entry level Bianchi bicycles other than the fact that they are vintage.  Both have managed to survive the trials of use, abuse and neglect.  And both have done so well.

These two old Bianchi Sprints were used in vastly different ways.  One spent the bulk of its life in storage while the other's was considerably different.  At least that would be my guess after listening to the stories that each had to tell.  And every vintage road bicycle has a story to tell.  A story that is not all that difficult to hear if you only take the time to look and hear.
