    I wish I had a better answer but all the catalog says is Bianchi Cyclone. I know in the past ('80s) most of the 'Bianchi' cranks were usually Ofmegas. I wouls suspect this crank is simply a rebranded SR, Sugino or similar quality crankset. the Cyclone was used on several bikes that year
    Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto (2), '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '88 Trofeo SOLd, '86 Volpe, '89 Axis SOLD, '79 Mixte SOLD, '99 Mega Pro XL Ti SOLD, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,

    Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '86 Bertoni (sold), '09 Motobecane SS, '98 Hetchins M.O., '09 K2 Mainframe SOLD, '89 Trek 2000, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape

    Ditto on the 1980s Bianchi cranks being Ofmegas, just as the 1960s were Magistronis (Ofmega's predecessor company, reportedly).

    the finishing is kinda sloppy, sharp edges where the spider and arm meet. i might swap it out for an early 90s rx100
