Not sure if it is real or not but it doesn't really matter this is a bottom of the line model in rough shape if everything works good $75-100 is all it's worth either way myself I wouldn't pay more than $50.

It is a Bianchi but not a very good one, in my opinion. I have had one of two of them come my way and they are unimpressive.

If it is in good running condition, with good tires, then a hundred dollars is not too bad. If the tires are shot and it is not mechanically sound, keep looking.

This may be a legitimate, entry level model from the 1970s that has been frankenbiked, repainted and with mixed 1980s decals applied. Regardless, it is very low end based on the plate style bridges.
