80’s Bianchi Brava Project Complete

The 80’s Bianchi Brava is complete and it came out great!

Excuse the bad pictures, there is literally a swarm of tiny mosquitoes in the backyard.

I gave it a quick ride around the neighborhood and it is smooth and quiet.  Light weight, shifts quickly, brakes like an 80s bike with single pivot brakes.  I would consider upgrading the brakes to modern dual pivot brakes as time goes on.  Not that these brakes are unsafe but it’s comparable to drum brakes vs. disc brakes on a car.

Vital Specs:
– 55cm frame for riders 5’4″ to 5’8″, standover height is 31.5″.
– 12 speed, downtube friction shifters
– Standard pedals with toe clips
– Woman’s gel saddle

I’m going to release it to Facebook first and then on Craigslist after a few days.
