1971 Bianchi Pista
Here's the '71 Bianchi track bike that was on eBay recently. It sold for $1900 plus shipping which seems like a heckuva deal to me considering...
a. It's a genuine made-in-Italy lugged steel frame
b. Bianchi's heritage
c. Full Campy Pista gruppo
d. It looked to be in immaculate condition.
e. You can't buy a new bike that nice for anywhere near that money
Anybody have any thoughts on the vintage bike market? Old cars and old guitars have gone through the roof in recent years and have proven to be great investments. Is vintage lugged steel next?
