> Could one of the Bianchi experts identify the frame vintage(early 1960's) and quality of the hook-lugged Bianchi shown on ebay # 140179976811 ?. Was this a basic Sport model or better quality frame? Plain forks without cut-outs in the crown sides,plain bottom bracket lugs,simple seat stay end caps make me wonder where it fits into the Bianchi product array of the time.

It looks like a mid to late 70's sport model to me, probably low to mid-range. I would not be surprised if the head tube and lugs are a one piece casting.
