What Bianchi is this? (1984?)

Found this thing on the local classifieds, 19.00 and i was rollin away with it.
I was wondering if someone can help ID the bike, and maybe give me some info, especially if its a better bike than my nishiki rally.

sorry for poor pics




diacome 500

these levers basically made it almost worth the price for me, if the bikes junk, i will transfer them to my nishiki.



im not sure what else to put for info, the frame appears to be steel, the serial is DS492xxx

I do not know what level your Nishiki is but sadly that is not much of a Bianchi. Pretty much a bottom of the barrel most likey Asian built frame.

Would make a decent townie bike, but that's about it. Sorry.

Are the rims alloy or steel? If steel, then sadly, bottom end. If alloy, you could probably put some drop bars on it and turn it. Looks like a low end high ten steel frame.

Looks like someone took drop bar brake levers and straightened them to use on flat bars, but I am not sure.
