Hello Banquo372 Welcome to the forums. It looks like an '83 / 84ish machine, judging by the decal style and the under the BB cable routing. It is a Orient built bike but Piaggio decal has nothing to do whith where the bike comes from. Bianchi was (is?) owned by Piaggio Group and for a short time in the '80s they bore Piaggio decals.

Looks like maybe a Special or Classica model, T-Mar may know for sure. It does look like the seatpost is backwards and it could use a good tuneup.
