I bought this bike 2nd hand and I would like to find out more information about it, but cannot find it in the Bianchi catalogues. Might someone be able to give me some guidance? I know it is a Bianchi Forza made in the 1990s.

Top of the downtube showing the Shimano-branded downtube shifters Front of head tube showing "Bianchi" eagle crest head badge Left side view of bicycle, showing "Bianchi" on the downtube and "Forza" on the top tube Front of the seat tube, showing a "B" logo with "Superset II" across it and "Chrome-Moly" "Double butted" below

    Hi, welcome to bicycles! Did you intend to include a photo with your question? Please do include one or several photos, otherwise we have very little to work with.

  • That's no Bianchi, it's not Celeste Green! (I kid... I kid... kinda...)

This appears to be a 1991 Bianchi Forza (from the 1991 catalogue). The logo changed the following year, and the colour has changed from the 1990 model.

You can compare the 1990 model (from the 1990 catalogue) and the 1992 model (from the 1992 catalogue).

Based on your paint scheme and decals I think the 1991 is the best match.

There was no Forza in 1989

Forza in 1990
enter image description here

Made in red or Sierra blue - no two color scheme

Forza in 1991
enter image description here
Made in Aqua or Black/Slate
I believe the Black/Slate bike is pictured and it looks very much like the bike in question. The decals seem a little off but it's hard to tell.
I think this one is the best match.

Forza in 1992

For 1993 all I could find is what I think is a Japanese catalog - no Forza and the scan is so bad it's hard to make out details.
