Pretty sweet bike. Probably genuine Bianchi, but it does have a bit of a mix of components.

My guess the bike is from the mid 70's, and probably has been repainted at some time.
@Bianchigirll ?

Appears Piaggio period, something like a Nuovo Alloro.

Kitting: OFMEGA Competizione chainset, OFMEGA headset and pedals, San Marco saddle pillar (seller ID's it as Campag). Only Campag is NGS gear ensemble. Favourite seller description: "Wobbler" tyres.

Definite respray. Wonder why they did not bother with a full transfer set...

The subject bicycle is 1984 model. Based on the presence of the dropout eyelets, it is one of the low mid-range models. It appears to have been frankenbiked to an extent, complicating identification. As previously noted, it may also be a repaint. At best, it is a Nuovo Racing with a tretubi Columbus SL tubeset. However, it could also be a lower model with an Aelle tubeset, such as an Alloro. I'm leaning towards the latter but a definitive answer would be obtained from the seat post diameter. Regardless, given the $120 shipping, no bar tape included and the need to replace at least the tyres and pads, I wouldn't be at even 1/3 of the BIN price. There are better bicycles available at that price. Don't succumb to celestitis.

I was vaccinated for it in the early 1970s. I've also had my shots to prevent my becoming part of the current Colnago virus forumdemic and provide immunity from several other brand afflictions.

First of all I would never pay $900, shipped, for this or even $770 across the street.

Comparing it to the Bianchi USA catalog it appears to be a 1985 Alloro with a Columbus TreTubi ChromeMoly DB frame with a Falck fork. The 3T bar/stem, Sporting brakes, Ofmega cranks all seem to be original and while the seller doesn't make reference to the hubs and rims the Wolber Rallye tyres were OEM so I suspect the wheels are too. I am however dubious of the Campagnolo 'cassette' as the catalog list a Regina Corsa FW in 14-24 6spd.

I dont think it was repainted just little used and maybe a taken care ofa bit more than most neglected bikes. The lone decal on the seat tube does not appear to be original to my eye.
