In case anyone missed bianchi boy, I'm now going by the handle "tarwheel." Then again, maybe nobody noticed BB's absence. Seemed like it was time for a new screen name since I primarily ride my Gios now. Plus, the reconfigured board wouldn't let me log on anymore as bianchi boy.

I've still got my celeste Bianchi, I just don't ride it as much as the Gios. Actually, I've considered putting some celeste & blue marbled bar tape on the Gios along with some green Axial Pros. That might be considered sacrilegious, though.
Do it, man!nigel

That color scheme would be bad-ass. Also, a kind tip of the hat to your older steed. Glad you're back with us, though, He So Recently Known As Bianchi Boy.

Actually, it's "sacreligious." And no, it wouldn't be! :) nmnigel

btw, Bianchi made some outstanding motorcycles including the 350 (cm^3) Freccia Celeste in 1924 ridden to fame and victory by Tazio Nuvolari. Eldorado Bianchi built his first bicycle in via Borghetto, Italy around 1890. They also made the military bicycle around 1916 called the "Bersagliera", named after the crack Italian light infantry regiment.

The works also built cars, trucks, and industrial vehicles.

Edoardo Bianchi ....breck

...not Eduardo ......sorree, a slight switch of the letters mi made :)

"Edoardo Bianchi born July 17th 1865 in Milan in the shdow of Italy's most famous cathederal, the "Duomo". He was taken into the care of "Martininitt" Orphanage where he was brought up and had already received the rudiments of mechanical instruction by age seven."
-from the chapter Le Origini (The Early Days).

Actually thought would get the "massage" from using "celeste-green" but this was a private joke with bianchi boy back on the old board where i posted as Wade Kelly and Big Ring at times.

cheers,
breck
