Hello, again-

One of my housemates has had this Bianchi road bike in the basement forever; I finally got him interested in restoring it (no, it's not for sale), and now I'm trying to possibly find some more info before we take it all apart...rough condition, all campy NR (dated '74) except for Zeus hubs and off-topic saddle and post. The 'MANN' stickers are what pique my curiosity- my ravaged brain has a fuzzy recollection of Mann as a sponsor of pro cycling in years past, so I'm wondering if this might be some sort of team bike...here is the link to a Flickr set called  Ali's Bianchi ....

Any info appreciated!
