Until recently, Bianchi's legendary Reparto Corse was the shop where only a few hand-built frames were made, including those for the brand's legendary racing teams. This shop starting building fine racing frames more than one hundred years ago. This frame, part of the last run of steel Bianchi Reparto Corse frames, was made according to that fine artistic tradition.
It is made from Bianchi's XL-Boron heat-treated triple-butted steel tubing and comes with a full carbon fork.
Though not new, as you can see in the pictures, the frame's first owner treated it as the work of art it is.
