Bianchi ID Help

Asking price is $160. Has lugs and a "Made in Italy" sticker, but no name from what I can see:

Even though it doesn't appear to be super high end, I'm intrigued. For $160, I may buy it just for those celeste rims alone. Never seen those before.

I don't know much about Bianchis but I'm sure that's worth the asking price.

If that fit an was local I'd grab it for $160. It looks like a '89 Campione de Italia with some parts swapped out/replaced.

The frame/fork are Bianchi Formula 2 made by Columbus.

The cranks, RD, wheels and maybe the brake levers are replacements.

BTW I just saw that on CL about 20 min ago.

Thanks for the info, it's a much better frame than I suspected. Would be nice to get more usable components in the deal, I'd be replacing almost everything on that bike if I was going to ride it. Very unusual Bianchi though, never seen one quite like it before.

I may take a look at it tomorrow if it's still around.

You don't have to replace everything right away, you could always ride it a for bit and decide what you want to put on it.

The brakes are nice but I bet they need better pads.

What's unusual about it? It wan't the most popular color but we sold a few of them.

It's definitely a 1988-1989 model based on the logo style, but a Formula II tubeset points towards 1988, rather than 1989. While it has been heavily frankenbiked, a Campione d'Italia is the best candidate. The Shimano rear derailleur is an entry level model and obviously doesn't play with the AccuShift levers, as they are set to friction mode.

Bakersfield CA seller and not bad at 160 but I think you can knock it down to 120.

I think OP meant replacing components like the baby blue wheelset.
