Need help with 2 vintage bianchi's

Hi 2 bikes in the set of pictures in the link...
So the first bianchi
I'm really not sure if it's real because I do not see any bianchi or b engraving and it just looks a little bit off..is it real or nah? It comes with everything besides seat post and seat...but he heated up the frame and kinda messed up the painting so what should i also offer? apparently from japan,..
2nd Bike...
He is asking for 250$ for 8/10 condition
Pretty sure it is real, but apparently he is 5'9 and fits this bike perfectly but it looks extremely small, so i do not know if i should buy it

Imgur

Does anyone know anything about the bikes..

That first frame looks like it is toast. Looks like he did more than just heat up the frame.

I agree these are likely not the best deals around

This looks like a mid '80s Professional, built in the Orient, which came with Suntour and DiaCompe. Looks like the fork got stripped of its paint. If the frame got over heated the brazing in this area could be damaged. This is a severe project and if it was next door to me and my size I wouldn't give much more than $50 for it.



Where are you and these bikes? I think this is a '88ish Campione de Italia but a few things just don't add up for a US market bike. Looks like formula two tubing and Modolo brakes. This is another project bike and although the drive train has seen some upgrades it still needs a lot of work.

Size: He's 5'9 and he claims that second bike fits "perfectly"? I'm not so sure about that. That's a very small frame. Make sure, no matter what brand you want, you find a bicycle in your size.
Condition: 8/10? For that? I hate to wonder what a 3 or 4 must look like...
Assessment: Pass on both. Too much money for what they are, possibly not even your size. Not feelin' a good vibe on either of the sales even from here.

I don't know Bill I think 250 is a bit optimistic for the parts. While you might get a nice set of SuperBee derailleurs off the possible Professional model and maybe Sugino Super Mighty crank, I can't see the Modolo and RSX bits off the other one holding up their end of the 250 price. You might get 100 out of the smaller frame maybe.
