This is Part Six of Our Bikes, a 1986 Bianchi Pista (parts one through five can be seen here). That (behind the bike) is a 1943 CV-11 (not ours), more commonly known as the USS Intrepid. The constructeur of the Intrepid was Newport News Shipbuilding, an independent shipbuilder that was later subsumed by defense contractor Northrop Grumman.
The color cast and harsh morning light make the Bianchi look more mint green in color than it actually is. The bike is stiff, twitchy, and (when the rider is in his element) absolutely flies.
