Bianchi frame on eBay - please help identify

I'd like a classic (celeste) Bianchi, but know very little about the individual models. Can anyone tell me anything about this frame?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

It looks perfect - like it's been newly painted (not necessarily a good thing). No headtube badge/decal and no other identifying stickers or decals. The seller says it's 1990's and Columbus - that's about the limit of the information he's given me.

Thanks.


PS. Failing this - is the Mega Pro considered classic yet? I know they are fairly recent and - horror - not steel!

greatlooking Bianchi. but again this is a European frame so it is different from ours. I looked through the '93 to 98 (missing '97) and the '93.96 Reparto Corse catalogs. only some of the '96 frames show the chromed triangle with the painted dropout but they lack that pointed flair. the BB design looks alot like a '93 CroMor frame amd it would also have the SuperSet design with the ovalised DT. but again it does not have the fancy painted drops.

it certainly looks like a nice bike but again having decals removed from the frame make identy hard.
