Hello welcome to the forums. youshould check 'sticky' on apprasails. can you post a few pics? condition is everything. and location two.
as for you '86 Vittoria, it is (like most all steel Bianchis) measured from the center of the bottom bracket, where the cranks bolt to the frame, to the top of the seatlug. it should be something like 49,51,53,55,57,59,61. going by the '86 Bianchi catalog it should have a full Campagnolo Victory group, Avanti was not around in the '80s. is your bike Celeste or yellow?
while a Columbus frame is a good thing sometimes the "custom" Bianchi frames like Formula One do not fair as well. Vittoria while great components are not hugely popular with alot of people. plus not having index or aero brake cables is a detractor.
OH that codes, they should have something to do with the manufacturing date but I have no idea how to decode it.
Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto, '90 Campione del Fausto Giamondi Specialisma Italiano Mundo, '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '86 Volpe, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,
Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '09 Motobecane SOLD, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape
