| I have a circa 1960's varldsmastarcykeln w/the classic orange/checkerboard pattern and I was wondering aprox. how much it would cost now|
| One just sold on ebay on 6/21 for $36 (#330134873388). I have a higher end model with fancy lugwork that I would not sell for $150.|
| Looking for any info about UNIVAL bikes|
| I have been considering buying an old Bianchi but the owner is it a bit uncertain about its age. The bottom bracket is stamped 58.5 which is the size and also has a 59 on the other side. He has a feeling it is 1959. The Columbus tubing decal I suspect might suggest otherwise that I have seen on bikes from the late 60s. I cannot find any info on Columbus tubing history on the Internet. I've posted pictures of the bike at http://s191.photobucket.com/albums/z184/vool5/?|
I would certainly appreciate any input from some Bianchi enthusiasts. Thanks, John

| I don't know...it doesn't look like an older Bianchi. They had those integrated headsets. Is it a Bianchi at all is the question. The drillings on the BB shell and the lack of B's embossed on the forks. And it's a repaint. Buyer beware.|
| Having never seen a Bianchi with either a drilled BB shell or holes in the headlugs, I concur with Warren. The seatstays also do not look Bianchi-esque to me.|

for a guy. the brakes are mafac racer and the rear seems to come loose at the place it screws into the alloy bracket pretty easily. the owner who bought it new said that it did it from day one. since the rear brake mounting hole in the frame is vertical I have nothing that will fit as a replacement. thinking about using locktight, but thought I would ask anyones opine. jason
ps. whats with the biker babes picture ad on the homepage. wrong kind of biker babe.
| Locktight is the solution in my mind.|

Brake parts that cannot be replaced. Wheels cannot be changed to 27 x 1 1/4 because of brakes not working at all either. I'm limited with these wheels.
I'll spend days searching for these things.
