Posted some comments but haven't gotten to post a pic of my new Bianchi fixed. Anyone know the history of this mid-80's purple Bianchi color? I get LOTS of comments!

I saw one like it years ago. It isn't something you'll soon forget! Kind of a berry sherbet color. I don't have any useful info on it though. It makes my purple frame look mild in comparison.

Is it a "Sports SX"? Looks like one. Mid 80's short wheelbase tourer. Nice bike. I have one in light metallic blue. Use it as my winter beater geared bike. Rides great.

Yep, it is the Sport SX and does have a pretty good ride. This particular one was made in Japan where I understand Bianchi's were produced (and very well made) for a while in the 80's.
