I've got a 1987 Bianchi Limited frame (Bianchi Formula Two tubing) that I'd like to build up with as much originality as is reasonably possible. Does anybody have photos or a specification list that would help? The 1986 catalog says only it came with the Shimano 600 groupset, but that leaves out a lot. What about the wheels, for example? My frame has 127mm rear axle spacing, a Shimano octalink bottom bracket (probably not original?), and adapters that fit over the shifter bosses to take cables from some kind of handlebar shifter. Would a 1987 bike have integrated shifters/brake levers? The frame also came with a Bianchi black seatpost (27.2); would that have been original? The headset is Shimano 600. There are holes in the rear dropouts (horizontal) for adjusters like the ones for Campagnolo rear dropouts, but I gather that these frames were sold without adjusters. Thanks for your help.
