Sorry believe the seat is actually a specialized ronin evo expert. Also the michelin tires only have probably 50 miles on them.
Unless it is a Brooks seats are seats. If you think it is valuable put the original on and sell it separately. the wheels too if you have the originals I would consider selling the fancy ones separately.
As for the bike..... rather new for this forum some may have a rough idea though just because they watch the market close. You need to figure out the model, did you buy it new?, if so what year? Compare it to Bianchis on Bikepedia and figure atleast half of MSRP
Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto (2), '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '88 Trofeo, '86 Volpe, '89 Axis, '79 Mixte SOLD, '99 Mega Pro XL Ti, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,
Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '86 Bertoni (sold), '09 Motobecane SS, '98 Hetchins M.O., '09 K2 Mainframe, '89 Trek 2000, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape
Well, Liquigas was getting bikes from Bianchi in 2005, and in 2007 Cannondale became the main sponsor. So that puts this as a 2005-2006 frame, aluminum/carbon blend. I'd price it around $500-600 and hope.
Bianchi used similar "AluCarbon" frames for a number of models in the 2005-2006 time frame, like the Alfana, Giro, and San Mateo. Bianchi continued to use that frame construction for the 1885 in 2007 & 2008.
My guess would be a Bianchi 1885. The top tube was shaped slightly different on those, bulging a little bit toward the front of the bike. The other 2005-06 AluCarbon frames I've seen are completely straight between the seat tube and head tube. The Campy Veloce components on this bike are 2007 or newer, though. Before 2007, Veloce cranksets were square taper.
Pricing can vary depending on where you're at, but I think JReade's pricing would be spot-on here.

Thanks for the reply's so far. I did some email digging and found that it was a 2006 frame. The guy I bought it from had it sitting around and built it up in 2011 to sell which would explain why the components are post 2007. Looking around the internet I've found the same frame but people call it by about 100 different names so still not 100% clear on the exact model.
Was hoping for more in the 700-800 range. I might switch out the wheels, list it for 600, and see what happens. I don't need to sell it so I will just keep it if I have to
