The stem and maybe the bars are older, but the bike model is '89 Campione de Italia. The rear derailleur and wheels, which look mismatched, and I think the brake levers have been changed. Judging from the looks of the bar tape and dirt in other areas while it works it may need a good overhaul.

IMHO the '89 Campione de Italia while a nice riding bike fell a little short of what it could have been. Bianchi tried real hard to get an "all Italian" bike in the $600-700 range hence the Quattro group made up of rebranded parts from Suntour, Ofmega, Modolo and others. Personally I would not go much over $275-300 on this example because of the work I think it needs. That Cromor SuperSet frame should be a good rider but this is nothing too special.

Thank you so much bianchigirl, I really appreciate your examination . Well the seller currently willing to let it go for $300.
There's another seller offering me 1997 campione d'italia for $375. It comes with campagnolo mirage set, dedacciai frame. Unlike this 1989, the frame has more nicks and few scratches. Which one would be a better buy? I heard deddacciai frame is little heavier?

Thanks
