Every old Bianchi is a Specialisma. Personally with the exception of one or two fancy bikes I don't really think there was a Specialissmabut rather Specialisma was the precursor to the Reporto Corse concept.

As for this bike I highly doubt the Specialisma claim in fact I don't see two things I would immediately look for to see if it is even a Bianchi. The fork crown looks the wrong style for a early '80s bike. Do you have any other information? Bottom bracket threading? What is stamped on the dropouts? Seatpost size? Anything stamped on the seat stay caps?

Components are all entry level drivel. The probability of a good frame is negligible.

Also the rear dropouts look bent along with the dent dings in the frame and paint it wouldn't be a good buy with the current components even if it was a real frame.
