Hey Man, the details show: it's the wonderful X4 frame, moreover a race version. The concealed cable routing and the engraved head badge eagle are clear X4 specifications.The X4 however made with SLX (later TSX) tubeset. Maybe it's on your frame the Columbus stickers were replaced for an SL?

You surely seem to know the Specialissima variants. It came to me from Germany as a frameset only. Number tab sure renders the pump peg useless. Next time I have the BB apart I'll have to check out the buts on the tubes.

All right. I look forward to seeing the spiral inside the tubes. But the engraved eagle on the head tube was only on the X4 and the Centenario models to the best of my knowledge. The ends of seatstays with this shape and bianchi script manufactured only on X4, Centenario, Mondiale and Specialissima SP types.The last two made of SL tubeset, but with decal headbadge and braze-on rear brakecable guide. The rare Centenario has centenario engraving on rear brake bridge and in the headbadge.

The Chainrings are counterbored with tricolor jewels inset.The whole package turned out terrific and a joy to ride.

I have notice that a lot of your bikes have jewel inserts. I really like you used these. How is this done?
