93/94 DA would be 8 speed STI.

I wouldn't pay it, but its outside my budget limit.
Unfortunately that basic unicrown was Bianchis standard fork of the day.

Everything is changed from what original? A real Reparto Corse frame came as a F/F and at different times (esp '92-04ish) Bianchi would offer a variety of 'kits', just like Gita, 10spd Drive and countless other importers. It is always possible that the frame was purchased and the customer simply added their old DA group.

I do agree $900 seems like a lot for this. It might be interesting to know if it is 7 or 8 spd I am thinking 7 but something looks funky with the cassette.

It is very clean and looks like a good solid bike. I never had the chance to ride on but I would imagine that EL rides like a dream. Maybe closer to $500
