You can also find brake housing. Pantographed parts for Bianchi are widely available as well if you are looking to add a bit of retro look.

I have a saddle - ponza, maybe? Just sitting waiting for me to sell my '01 RC Ciclocross, which is not likely to ever happen, so I can donate it to the cause for the price of a medium priority mail flat rate box, whatever they're going for nowadays. PM me if interested.

FYI, i was surprised to see at REI the other day that they have planet bike celeste bottle cages on the shelf. $5 bucks a piece. they look pretty nice and if i had a celeste bianchi i would throw them on!

I do have some Celeste bottles. A pair. Would probably be better for a restore than a daily rider.

You guys are the best.Thanks for all the responses.It is true there is much available for Bianchi/Celeste stuff,but the thing that sent me "running to the oracle"was seeing a pair of non panto ,non leather toe straps going for almost $40,just because they are Celeste! Really appreciate all the help and generosity.

Remember, Celeste has not always been the same color. Some years it's been more blue, some years more green; some years lighter, some years darker. The paintjob on my bike is on the lighter green side, with a crazy blurple candy coat over top that you don't see unless the sun is on it. There's no way I'm going match it with components or accessories, so everything metal is silver and I roughly follow the Velominati rules with saddle, tape and tires. Pompous as they are, their aesthetic sense is fairly in line with my own.

Good Hunting!

Rule #8.

Big grain of salt with most of them, lest you come off as an Arrogant Roadie Douchebag, or one of those names the Scots have come up with for Donald Trump.

FWIW, Hudz all come in celeste for the brifter hood replacements, if you plan on going a route that involves brifters. http://odigrips.com/store/road
1988 would be about a 6400 shifter set or 7400, if Shimano instead of Campy.
