    Vintage Bianchi Model

    A friend of mine recently gave me a 90s vintage 12 speed Bianchi Road Bike for trade. Most of the decals are missing so I have no idea what model it is. I was told it was the last year they made steel frames before they started making them in Taiwan. I love the bike but would like to know what it is. If anyone knows please share your information. Please check out my bike pics here, and thanks!

    Hard to say without some more info. Is there a frame tubing decal anywhere? The Shimano 600 group would tend to indicate a nice upper mid-range model. I thought 600 became Ultegra in the late 80's though. The downtube shifter and 600 components make me think late 80's but I don't know. When did Shimano go to STI?
