There is a White 86 LX in nice shape on Criagslist in Houston for $350 at a local bike shop. It was listed for $400 for a while but never sold. Seems like a nice bike to me as an everyday ride.

I would encourage you to post detailed pictures, but at the very least a decent drive-side photo of the bike for a very accurate appraisal. Also, it depends on urban or metro. In busy areas like Portland or LA, you can easily get $100 more than Bozeman, MT.


If the bike is celeste (Bianchi's signature color, kind of a sea green) then I'd say $2-300 if it is in good shape. Deduct $50 at least for non-celeste.

p.s. Disregard the welcome, misread your mentions as your post count.

I post photos Saturday here thank you for the answer. But some info of my bike. When i buy the bike is had 700c wheels with 6 speeds free wheel. No have that wheels any more i forget the brand. i put on the bike fulcrum racing T wheels with 9 speeds cassette but finally i do one cassette 8 speeds 12-30. Crank when i buy the bike is was 52/42 i replace with 53/39 and now i have on the bike one crank 50/40. the colour of the bike is not Celeste is white. Also i replace the stem and the handlebar. I take out the fork and grease the bearings i put the fork back but when i ride the stem with the wheel is not center is little off. I wonder if that stem is make the wheel not look straight. the wheel is center. I not see any marks on the fork for i can alignment the fork all forks is no have standard side to put back first time i take out fork and put back. One person is wanted buy my bike maybe i have other bikes two road one aluminium one steel one aluminum TT bike and one steel mountain bike. but i not have deside to sale i like the bianchi plus this road vintage bikes is very hard to find in my area.

I think that is a good idea. Anyone shopping for a Bianchi likely wants it to be original. It sounds like this one has some user upgrades.

I recommend centering up the stem, even if you are the one to ride it. My method is to loosen the stem all the way, but then re-tighten so it doesn't flop around, but it is loose enough to move side to side. Stand over the bike like you are going to ride it and center the tire visually between the two brake levers. Tighten of course.
