If that’s not what dreams are made of… i don’t know what is :P I know that strictly speaking it’s not a fixed gear or singlespeed, but my god it’s pretty!
Loads more pictures and information inside! :)
This Bianchi Specialissima is a great vintage “rider.” It has a full complement of very cool and period-correct parts that look great, but the parts have been ridden before, so they can (and should!) be ridden again without the worries associated with perfect or NOS parts. Same for the SLX frameset (Bianchi’s top-of-the-line in it’s day). It looks great, but in fact the original paint has been touched-up in several places. Up close you can tell that the paint has many imperfections, but from just a couple of feet, it looks like a showbike. So you have the best of both worlds…a bike that looks like a showbike, but is really a rider. You can take it out, put in the trunk, lean it against a tree, whatever, and not worry about having a heart attack the first time you scratch it. Just touch it up and keep going – it will only add to the character of the bike.
