Such a bikes value???

I've been watching this bike on Edmonton's Kijiji.
It has gone down in price by $300.
Is it priced reasonably? I would like to make an offer.

Thanks for your opinions!

Maybe if it comes down another $500.

Clean bike, though.

Overpriced by quite a bit.

Hmmm...
I didn't expect it to hold such a low price.
Perhaps I'll low-ball the seller an offer.
However,
I doubt he’ll sell it as he has been
sitting on it for such a long time.

Might be worth $350 to $400, depends on your market. Bianchi buyers tend to want Celeste color bikes, so those enjoy a hefty premium.

$799 buys a lot of bike in the vintage market. Heck, $400 buys a lot of bike.

Really, I know very little about vintage bikes.
I have always wanted on and this one seems to fit my bill.
