help identify a 1985'ish Bianchi

Trying to figure out the year and model of this Bianchi, it was a birthday gift from my sister to my son. May be a 1985 Trofeo, but it is difficult to get an exact fix from online searching.
thanks.


here are a bunch of photos

Is this a trick question? It says Veloce right on the top tube :]

Here's a pic from another 85 Veloce I found on pintrest; they look similar.

My mistake, thought Veloce was the grouppo, that helps a lot!

Group appears to be Campagnolo Triomphe.

About mid 80's, Bianchi's tubing and made in Italy make it nice a bike.

So my son decided he prefers my old Colnago, and with enough bikes I would like to sell the Bianchi...any thoughts on the value?
Thanks

Bianchi Special tubing defines it as a 1985 model. The componetsd are triomohe, so that does make it a Veloce. Orignal MSRP $650.00 US.

My 1985 catalogue shows blue handlebar tape and cable housing being OEM on celeste models with Columbus Special tubing. It's probably because the logo decals were blue.

It's a fairly nice Italian Bianchi in celeste blue with campy stuff so cleaned up a bit with redone cables, bartape and some suitable pedals you should be able to get $350-400.
