Bianchi - Need help determining model and price

I have a Eduardo Bianchi that does not say the model. The star on the pedals says sugino Vp. the Handlebars are Shimano as well as the brakes. I have checked for any special details on the frame , but does not have any.

Thank you!

The VP crankset means it is likely a lesser mid level model made in Japan circa 1982-1984. If you give us a serial number and pics chances are someone here can give you the maker and model.

The brakes and derailleurs are Shimano Z-series. It has stem mounted shift levers and the hubs are quick release on the front but nutted on the rear. The rims are 27" aluminum. This adds up to a bottom of line, Bianchi Strada, circa 1985-1986. The serial number will establish the exact manufacturing date.

As a lower end Juvinlle model in slightly rough shape I would say it's worth $100-125 as presented. It is too small for most adults and most of the likely buyers for a bike this size and level are going to want something ready to ride in nice shape.
