    Bianchi - What is it and what's it worth?

    I'm hoping you guys can help me with this one.. This is in the local classifieds for sale for $400, maybe still negotiable.. The seller sent the ff info:

    Purchased 1984
    12 speed
    Dia Compe brakes
    SunTour shifters
    Sella Italia saddle
    Road Champion Sakae Custom bar

    Seller states it's in "like new" condition. Worth picking up? I like the bike, but don't want to overpay..



    Thanks in advance for any input.

    is this bike in the US? the decals seem to indicate '83 or earlier, but I can't really find a match between color chrome and components. can you get more information?

    I would not recomend spending $400 on it.

    if it is in perfect condition $200 would be top dollar without knowing more about it.

    Personally, I wouldn't pay over $200 for it, but I guess it depends where you live/your market. BianchiGirll might have a better idea of its value.

    What kind of tubing does it have? Can you get the serial number off the bottom of the bottom bracket?

    What are the derailleurs?

    Thank you both! I also checked out Bulgier's catalogs and can't confirm the model of this one or what tubing it has.. Anyways, the seller seems pretty firm on the price so i think I'll just pass on this one.

    Thanks again!
