1983 Bianchi Road Bike

In 1983 my dad graduated high school and his parents gave him a choice: either a brand new top-of-the-line Bianchi road bike or a new car to take to college in Chicago. He chose the bike. It's been to cycling camps in Colorado to rides across my birth state in Maryland. It's got a long history that shows. More than 30 years later, I'm still riding it around.

Thanks! This bike has a lot of history and after ten years of being a trophy needed minimal adjustment for riding. :)
