1964 Bianchi Specialissima in original, rideable condition.

Campy pedals with Christophe clips are rusty, but spin well.
Hubs have been re-packed, adjusted and feel great.
BB spins well, but sounds dry.
HS spins well, but bearing condition is unknown.
The points for a freewheel removal tool are striped, but FW and chain are both on good shape.
Limit screws on front derailleur are seized.
Tires are a little dry rotted, but hold air.
Brooks saddle is rideable, but not great
