Bianchi L'Una

https://ibb.co/F6VGsm1I picked this up from member 91bear as a frameset plus extras, and built it up with some Shimano 10 speed kit I had on hand and a set of Flashpoint wheels I got from member Michael Maddox. First ride last night of 30 miles. I'm very happy--beautiful bike aesthetically and ride. My first real road bike was a celeste Bianchi and I have wanted to get another for awhile.

I should have sent along some matching silver handlebar tape I found. Sorry about that.

And Jagwire makes a celeste cable.

No worries! Though I like the clean black and white, I do feel it needs a touch more celeste. It comes out more in the sun. My riding buddy was impressed.

My friend has one with super record 11 on it. The paint is amazing! Such a neat low production frame set. Real beauty
I'll see if he will send me a picture of his.

Back to circa 2000-2001 I think I had one of these.
Was a nice bike at the time though mine suffered from a couple of crashes and the resulting impact damage.
My brother uses it as a town bike now !
