Bianchi - what model

Picked up cheap from a second hand store. Modolo brake set, Stronglight crank, Campy derailleurs, Columbus Formula 2 frame and forks, Mavic rims with Campy Record hubs. Not certain what year or model.

It appears to be a 1988, Canadian market, Campione d'Italia.

It's the 3rd version of Campagnolo Victory, also known as Nuovo Victory.

Bianchi

I searched websites for catalogues of the Bianchi models - over half of them in Japanese. Thanks the gods there is Bike Forums and great people like you all. Same place I purchased the Bianchi the shop owner had a higher end Peugeot for $50 Cdn. If I din't have my Frau with me I would of had that bike, but sleeping on the sofa! I will restore it back to original. Thanks to all for your information and safe ride.

What's to restore? From what I can see, it is OEM.

New cables, chain, tape, seat is badly worn. Is restore too extreme a term? A good cleaning and few new pieces to tart it up.
