Do current Bianchis have anything in common with those of 25 years ago, other than the name, logo, and color (in the case of Celeste)?

Not much. My last Bianchi was Aluminum I believe. Maybe steel. Don't remember.

They just have a similar look. But u can say that about most major brands. In the end most of the major brands make good bikes IMO, and most of them are made in Asia, and painted to look a certain way - all are very similar except for the few unique frames.

Too bad - the old steel bikes were very pretty and detailed - and different. I remember when a De Rosa really had hearts in the metal - not just heart stickers on the frame. Now we detail bikes with logos and paint - not cool lugs or chrome work. Just paint and logos.

I find current Bianchis really well made with a nice attention to detail. At least better than many other frames at their price.
