Can anyone tell me what this is. Trying to find the cost as it is for sale and am buying it and want a good deal and a good bike. Any idea on year, model, and how much it's worth?

Not with that pic. All I can tell you from that pic is that it is a very small frame so unless your under 5'2" it is likely too small. Can you get a link to the posting or better pics?

Yes, it's hard hard to say much from the the small, poor resolution photo but it does appear to be circa 1982-1987. Its bee n frankenbiked with a high rise stem and mismatched wheels, so it may possibly have been crashed. The brake levers are not the normal Campagnolo or Shimano. They're could be Modolo but look more like the Universal Squadra levers. Then again, they could be aftermarket too.

At the $75 price point, model doesn't matter. If it fits, buy now, research later.

Couldn't get link from listing but guy says is all original. Says it's 26in. Guessing he's stating wheel size? Hes 5 foot 8 and says his toes just touch ground. Still curious what model too?

Where is the bike listed? Craigslist? What City and Country? Ebay?

I can't see that stem being original unless a bike shop threw it in there for him when he bought it. If Bianchigirl says she can't ID it from the photo, I won't say anything definitive, but aside from the riser stem, that looks exactly like my 1986 Bianchi Sport SX, right down to the bronze tinted front rim with the red Araya sticker on it.

The wheels on mine are 700c, incidentally. I would expect those are two, given the bike's proportions. (You can't trust sellers on Craigslist to know their bikes, but if it pedals and rolls, it's worth more than $75.)
