Which Vintage?

I'm curious for input on whether either of these bikes i'm looking into are good deals or are the sellars asking too much..? Thanks!

1- 1984 Bianchi road bike- fully restored- Campagnolo or equivalent component group, 10 speed, new tires, new pedals, new chain, new gear set, etc... $750


2- 1987 Nishiki Prestige- exceptional condition- 23lbs, Suntour Alpha 5000 Front and rear derailleurs, indexing shifters, brake levers, Dia Compe sidepull caliper brakes, etc.,,, $600

Thanks for insights/thoughts!

I would agree even without more info these price seem way high. The Nishiki is likely only worth $200 or so. I would guess not much more for the Bianchi sense they don't sate model or actual components I would assume it is a mid level or lesser model with miss matched components some of the lower end Campy.
