Vintage 69(?) Bianchi Corsa Special Bicycle Campagnolo Universal 3ttt 54/56 cm ( c to c seat/top tube). Very good condition. Head tube lug is stamped 2E69300. Front fork tips and fork crown are chromed. Chrome is in very good condition. This is a very original example of a late 60s or early70s Bianchi racing bike. The serial number and some parts lead me to believe this is a late 60s model, but the axle nuts indicate a couple years later or that they have been replaced. Check pictures closely before bidding!

MASI Special Nervex lugs NOS/near NOS campagnolo! – £1600 (London)

Up for sale is a restored Masi Special. For a couple of years in the early 1960s, Faliero Masi built his frames using Nervex Pro lugs. A relatively small number of Masis were built using these lugs, then Masi reverted back to the Cinelli-style lugs he had been using previously.

These Nervex Specials were all beautifully finished, the nervex lugs filed and shaped more finely than than most makers cared to do. These frames also featured the pretty matching Nervex bottom-bracket shell. These days these frames are virtually unfindable on the market.

This one measures a true 56cm c-t; 55cm c-c top-tube. The frame was restored to period-correct style by Brian Baylis, based on existing original-paint Nervex Specials, and he did his usual flawless job.

The restored bicycle is fully period-correct throughout, with NOS or near-NOS Campagnolo parts. Note things like the NOS pirelli tires. Cool Fiamme bar and stem, NOS Universal brakes with early levers and NOS hoods. The wheels have never been fully tensioned, since it was intended to be a show bike exclusively. This bike won the Judges Choice award at the 2003 Larz Anderson Concours for best restoration. The plaque comes with the bike.

The bike is in perfect, NOS condition, with a tiny bit of light wear on some parts.

I’ve ridden it once, about 25 miles, with user pedals, wheels and saddle, and it’s a lovely ride, plushy, comfortable, and fast, a typically refined top-flight italian road bike of the time.

This is a tough one to let go of, but for me she’s been a wall-queen, and I’m trying not to have any of those. She’s a consistent show-stopper, whether at a concours, or on the road. A one-of-a-kind bike, potential Queen of your collection.

Pipe dream of the day

Brakes set is a very 1st generation Nuovo Record model without lettering on caliper arms, extremely rare, introduced and manufactured in 1968 only.

Both rear and front derailleur look 1st generation Nuovo Record as well

(that rear derailleur Nuovo Record model was manufactured in 1968-69 only, without any dating marked on, just Patent)

Here’s some details which can help to identify frame dating:

. Georg Fischer fork crown. Head tube side windows appear for the first time on 1969-70 frames
. Georg Fischer bottom bracket with those six short separated opening slots again suggests us it’s 1969-70 because 1968 frames still had three longer not separated opening slots
. Nervex Dubois lugs shaped with shorter tangs and the new cutout tell us it’s a frame manufactured later than 1967 and before 1971
. Masi’s latest version of brass head badge, smaller and with a wider border than previous one, this one introduced for the first time in 1968
