Nice bike, although it needs a lot of love. Bearings will all need to be replaced with fresh grease (good DIY job). Make sure seat post and stem are not stuck. Bianchi name tends to get a premium value wise over similar bikes. NYC gets a premium too!

FYI, based on the decals and SunTour GPX, it is a 1989 model. The tubeset is Ishiwata 022 with heavier gauge 024 for the down tube and chain stays.

T-Mar answered your question. Yes the GPX is original to the '89 Brava. I love that color. I agree with everyone else, that could be a nice bike but needs a complete overhaul, cleaning and wax on the frame. It should eb a great riding bike though.
