Maybe. Assume this bike needs a 1" fork. Nashbar has one for $70. But it is a road bike fork. Not lots of clearance for big tires like a touring bike uses. No cantilever or V brake mounts. You will have to look around to find a touring bike fork in 1" steerer. Figure $100. It will likely be threadless steerer, so $25 for new headset and $25 for new stem. If you can find a threaded 1" touring fork, then you can use the existing stem and headset probably. Firgure this bike is 7, 8, or 9 speed. 9 speed bar end shifters can be found for $75 easy enough. 7 or 8 may be difficult to find. Maybe new cassette for $30 from Nashbar and new chain for $20. Without really replacing anything that does not need replacing, you are at $200-300. And you doing all the mechanical work yourself. Not paying a shop to do the work. If you have to pay a shop, add another $100 labor. Is it worth it? Nashbar has a touring bike for $650 before discount codes. Bikes Direct has a touring bike for about the same. Probably a few others out there. These bikes are better equipped than the Bianchi will ever be. Fixing, upgrading old bikes usually does not make economic sense. Unless you get the parts used or super cheap, do your own mechanic work, and only fix it to a working level, nothing extra. Now i am not saying you should not fix the Bianchi and ride it and enjoy it. Just keep in mind you are sort of, kind of wasting money and throwing it down a hole. No reason not to do this, but realize you are doing it.
