Herewith some shots of my 1987 Bianchi Vittoria that I bought new. For 13 years it was ridden with the original Victory 12 speed group during which time it accumulated over 30000km. In 1990 it was updated with a Campy Veloce 9 speed group. In addition to the frame and fork, the front wheel, seatpost, head bearings, handlebars and paintwork are all original.

P.S. The Victory group has been installed in a 1976 Dawes Kingpin which I have turned into a "hotrod" Bike Friday lookalike. I have some pictures of this which might qualify as a "classic shopping bike"!. It's got a Pantour suspended hub in front and old Profile tri-bars. It's been a huge success and performs well against 700 wheeled bikes on club rides.

I can send description plus photos if you are interested.
