Bianchi Identification

Need help identifying a Bianchi I recently acquired. I believe it to be a 1988 based on the stickers and serial number. Not sure if all parts are original but here is a list of what I could identify:

S/N: 81102030
Paint is thick and/or chipped over a couple number making it hard to read. I'm not totally sure about the 8 and 3.

Tange Infinity cr-mo tapered double butted tubing.

Wheels: Weimann 36 hole 27x1-1/4

Shifters: Shimano M5

Brakes: Dia-Compe N500

Cranks: Sugino 170mm

Chain rings: Sugino (52/42)

Front Derailleur: Shimano FD-Z204

Cassette: Shimano MF-Z012 (14-28)

Rear Derailleur: Shimano RD-L525

Pedals: HTI A19

Can't post links since I am new and do not have the required 10 posts and got an error when trying to attach so just remove the space between http and : to view images.

Welcome to the forums. The Bianchi logo style and rectangular Campione del Mondo decal indicates a 1987 model. The component grouping is that of a Bianchi Premio, which was an upper entry level model, 12th in line of 14 road models.

Thanks for the welcome and quick ID! So it's not too valuable. That's both disappointing and a relief. I just got it for transport around town so i didn't have to worry about my good bikes being stolen.

Your best bet is trying to find some auto touch up or nail polish
