1981 Bianchi Classic

Considering bike below and wondering what would be a fair price given it's condition.

Also, anybody know what size "B" translates in to cm? Seller insists that it is a size "B".

Probably an Alle main triangle and Falck stays and fork. It looks like it needs a good overhaul and cleaning. Universal brakes? Gipieme Hubs? Gran Sport Derailleurs? I am leaning closer to $250ish. If you can't do a complete overhaul and cleaning yourself that will run you $100 or more before things like a new chain or bartape.

Thanks for the info. I can do the overhaul myself. Any guesses on the size? I need a 53-56cm.

According to the Columbus decal it's an SL main triangle, probably with Falck stays and forks. The rear derailleur is Nuovo Record. The brakes appear to be Universal 77. It looks to be about 52-53cm ctc and I'd value it ~$250.
