    Well Mario,
    actually I do not have better photos than you.
    Pics of the Bianchi are rare on the internet.
    I also searched my collection of classic motorcycle magazines but with no success.

    I also used this link as a guide for my model:

    Bianchi by Koji Sugita

    Regards
    Uli

    I'm doing some serious work on the front fork, complicated as it is, I managed to complicate it a little further and make more scratchbuilt parts and some other parts yet, to replace those plastic ones in the kit....



    A view of some of the parts used just to assemble the front fork....


    [/IMG][/IMG]



    Everything was prepared to assemble via scale hardware and those chromed parts in the kit were replaced by aluminum parts turned in the lathe and polished...

    [/IMG][/IMG]

    [/IMG][/IMG]

    [/IMG][/IMG]




    The front brake scratchbuilt parts in a testing stage...

    [/IMG][/IMG]

    [/IMG][/IMG]

    [/IMG][/IMG]


    At this point, the front fork works very well, it really bounces in its sole central suspension spring...

    Notice the new front axle devised, made from a 2 mm diameter stud and 2 Pocher nuts...this, to replace the single screw used by Protar which is non - scale...

    See ya....

    Hello Mario,
    leave of that brass piece to fix the front brake.
    The front brake cable would not work with that bend.



    On my model I also shortened the handle bar holders on the fork to lower it.

    Greetings
    Uli

    Haven't posted in a long time, very busy building for my client.....

    I'm updating this vintage bike build.....

    The wheel making according to Protar is a mess, so I made a wooden jig in the lathe, which made things easier...

    Good to see you back Mario. Good to see you're at the bench again too. The bike is turning out extremely well.

    Hi,
    Could you possibly supply me with an instruction manual or copy as my wifew threw out the one I had just as I was about to start the wheels.Most kits are easy enough to assemble without the book,not this one.Any help would be appreciated.
