Another Bianchi Premio

Hey, I'm new here. I just snagged this Bianchi Premio this week.
I've been scouring this forum to figure out what I have exactly but I'm still confused about certain details.
Even the colour as the turquoise doesn't match the usual Bianchi turquoise... No serial numbers to be found anywhere.

Edit: obviously I can't post pics but I've uploaded them in my gallery.
My album is: www.bikeforums.net/g/album/18006628
If someone can post it. Thanks!

Welcome to the forums. The decal style is 1988 to 1989 but based on the round Campione del Mondo decal, this should be a 1988 Premio. The serial number will provide confirmation of the manufacture date. It has obviously been extensively rebuilt, as this model did not use centre-pull brakes and the Shimano 400LX rear derailleur was not available in 1988 or even 1989. It even has mismatched crankarms.

Ah wow, thanks for all these details! It helps a lot. Good to know about 1988.

Any idea whatís the exact color? It was listed as turquoise but comparing other turquoise Bianchis on the forum, itís not a match.

Is it possible that the serial number is somewhere non-visible? Itís not under the BB nor anywhere as is...

Check the bottom of the seat tube for the serial number.
