I have a January 1981 Bianchi Pista, Model E.1.51 (not Super Pista, Model E.1.50),complete with the big rectangular gold F.I.V. E. Bianchi sticker on the bottom of the seat tube that I have been told by several sources indicates Reparto Corsa production in that time frame, despite it being having Gippiemme fork drop-outs and unbranded trackends. Is this wrong or does "all" in the above quotation only apply to road bikes?
