    It sounds like a 1980s Japanese Bianchi to me.

    i dont think this bike is worth that much

    this bike was made in japan and not italy

    it doesn't have compagnalo parts

    the derailleurs are suntour which is cheap

    it feels quite heavy

    i checked out ebay

    i checked out some values on ebay and found a lot of different bianchi frames

    some sold for $300-$400 but i think they were bikes made in italy and they did not look like the bike i have
