I'm no expert on bianchi, and those pictures aren't great, but it looks to be in fairly good nick. Paint and components could come up nice with a bit of love.
If you intend to restore it, you will need a certain level of know-how. If you do not have a parts bin and a variety of tools (probably needs all new cables, bar tape, chain, maybe new tires and tubes) you will eventually end up spending a fair bit of money.
$245? Depends what you want it for, and what your market is like.

Hello welcome to the forums. Where is this bike? It looks like a '83/4ish 980, named for the Campagnolo 980 derailleur. More information and better pics would help.

$245 US dollars for that? I am with Rest_assured unless you already have all the tools and know how to give this a full overhaul don't bother. Having it done in a shop would run you another 100 or so for labor plus parts.

This looks more like a project to me and should be closer to $150ish. It does have a TreTubi Columbus frame but IMHO for 250 that should be ready to ride.
Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto, '90 Campione del Fausto Giamondi Specialisma Italiano Mundo, '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '86 Volpe, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,

Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '09 Motobecane SOLD, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape

Those brake levers have safety levers on them which strikes me as a little odd since the rest of the stuff on there is campy. That seat is nasty too.
