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 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
