- The Bike – 1961 Bianchi Specialissima.
- The Story – Pre-eBay days. I saw an ad on the Internet for a bike that I was interested in and responded to it. The owner said it was already sold but he had this other bike that he would like to sell. The bike was very original with some incorrect parts. More appropriate parts were sourced and installed including a correct stem that came courtesy of Dave Martinez.
- The Cool Factor – Original beautiful finish. Matching embossed and anodized pump. Nicely finished lugs and workmanship.
