1998 Bianchi Trofeo 57cm NOS

Having bought over 400 vintage bikes in the last 5 years this only the 3rd one that I have found in this condition. This bicycle was bought new in 1998 at Highland Cycles in Louisville KY by a bike enthausist who owned several other bikes. A computer was installed which shows just over 300 miles. The rest of the time it sat stored in a spare room in the house. 1998 was the last year that Bianchi frames were hand braised in Italy.
