Mid 80's Bianchi Primio bike

Does anyone have an idea on what would appear to be an 80's Bianchi Primio bike? Condition is good but I'm suspecting cheaper components on it as it looks like a standard commuter 10 speed.

Several months ago I picked a 1987 "Premio" (perhaps this is the model you are interested in?". It has Dia Compe brakes and areo levers. Has Shimano shifters and derailleur (light action). Wheels are Nashbar but I suspect they are not original. I did a teardown and rebuild and have ridden it several hundred miles so far. It has a little shorter wheel base so I have watch my toes on tight turns. This is the third Taiwan built Bianchi I have owned and so far I like it the most. Paid $130 for it, but after the sale I realized I could have got it for less!

Any pics? The Premio was a recreational level bike and thusly equipped although I think the '86 and '87 were probably the better ones. Any pics or more details?

Looks like it is no longer available as I can't find the original add so I guess that settles that. It was red and didn't look all that speciel. Anyways, they were asking $300 CDN which would be a decent price for an Italian vintage around here.
