Ken Denny tells me there is a "marque enthusiast" Bianchi expert, David Carpenter, in the Veteran Cycle Club, who has maintained a Bianchi serial number list for decades. He goes on, "I recommend that any of you guys with a sincere interest consider joining the VCC. It is the oldest organization of it's kind in the world, and records of hundreds of vintage marques, including Bianchi, Cinelli, Ephgrave, Hetchins, et al, are maintained, and generously shared, without ego, to members. David Carpenter's email address is davidandjoan@cwcom.net"

I haven't yet joined VCC nor contacted Mr. Carpenter, but I thought I'd pass that info along - without ego, or as close as I can get ;^)
