Bianchi Campione 50cm

Have what a think is a good opportunity here for a weekend touring bike to supplement my fixed gear daily commuter. Love the color, obviously, and I can talk the seller down to around $150.

Couple things:
general info on this bike, is it a good deal, what should I look out for etc...
and, more importantly, I'm worried about the fit. I'm 5'7" with about a 31" inseam and my daily ride is a 52cm track bike which feels great to me. Is this bike going to be just way to small for me, or a bit cramped? Do you think I can make it work?

Thanks a lot for your help guys.

It appears to be mid-1990s with a lower tier Shimano group, possibly RX100. A 2cm discrepancy from optimum fit is typically not an issue for most people. Most would simply raise the saddle and stem, though some would fit a longer stem. $150 is a very good deal, provided there are no unforeseen, major issues.

Looks a lot more like a 54cm rather than a 50cm. Are you sure about the size?

I haven't personally confirmed the size. Either way I think I'm gonna jump on this one.

Thank you so much for the advice, Will post an update with better pics once I get it cleaned and tuned up.
