1988 bianchi champion d'italia. Please help this new cyclist!

So here it is... Please give me your thoughts & appraisals - I have very little knowledge when it comes to bike/component valuations. Thank you in advance!

I'm no expert but I'm guessing that's on the steep side.

Where are you located? Market makes a fairly big difference, here in Winnipeg a similarly equipped bianchi was up for sale at $300 for a few weeks.

it is a great looking Bianchi, it is actually an '87. I think it is a bit over priced. $350 to 400 tops. the frame is nice I have a similar '88 frame and it rides very nice. the Suntour drive train is nice but, if you need to replace the FW they can be pricy.

Market....

I'm in the Chicago area - would that affect pricing too much? The seller also includes "Ambrosio 19 extra rims". Would this justify the higher price? Thoughts are greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much in advance everyone!!!!

Cheers

the Ambrosio rims were stock, there is nothing super special about them.

He's saying firm $475. I think I'll say "pass".
