Dear List Members,
I have an old beater 60's Bianchi Specialissima that I bought used when I was 15. I thoroughly abused it in high school and college before I knew any better. I'm looking to restore it but it needs the following:
1. Bianchi Headbadge (I ran into a chain across a drive way at night with an abrupt stop that threw me over the bars. The badge fell off and of course as a teenager I just threw it away. The headtube now has a small ding but a Badge would cover that.
2. Fork (crashed a couple of times more; fork broke way down by the dropout at a rust spot. I threw the fork away along with the bent wheel that had a three piece Campy front hub. Oh, the sins of our youth!!!)
a. steerer tube needs to be 17.5 cm from top of crown to top or longer; but hey beggars can't be choosers so I would take a shorter one and change it.
