Do the Bianchi-ists on this list believe that the would-be seller dated this frameset correctly, or is it perhaps later than listed? I ask, primarily in reference to the Bianchi pista that was discussed on the list recently. Many people thought 1930s or 40s, I suppose because of some of the parts, but the pista frameset looked like late 60s to me, with the bullet type seat stay top attachment. I think I remember reading here that the integrated headset stayed around till then, but how early was it in use on Bianchis? This CdM road bike has similar work (from what I could see, as the pista bike has no close-ups), but perhaps the stay tops are not quite as bullet like, if that makes any sense.
