Going for 50, near me. Good deal? Need new brakes and wheel supposedly.

The front wheel alone is worth the price. It's hard to pick out much from the poor resolution, non-drive side picture but those appear to be mid-1980s Shimano pedals and it appears to have have the scalloped Shimano headset lock nut. My overall impression is that the components are probably 1984-1987 Shimano New 600EX. If OEM, that would make this a Bianchi Limited.

My advice is to hurry. If the bike has been advertised locally then it will not be long before it is sold. Were I there, it would already be in my humble collection.

I would say it is 1985 limited with some none original parts. At $50 as said it is a great deal I see a minimum of 2x part out value even if it isn't in riding shape.
