Bianchi Identification

Looking for help identifying this bike:

Cyclone in the rear but that hasn't helped me much in determining what it is. Thanks!

Get close-ups of the frame and fork decals.

Pretty sure this is a 1986 Bianchi Premio. Decal set, colour, tubing and Cyclone derailleurs would all be correct. Serial number will go a long way to providing corroboration.

Would say1983 Specialismo or Primio looks to be a none US private import so perfect id might be a bit tricky since Bianchi had about 100 total models at this time and half were blue and look similar.

More information about the bike would certainly be helpful...for instance does it actually say PREMIO on the top tube?

With the pics provided I agree it certainly appears to be a 1986 Premio in Ice Blue. Tange ChroMoly main frame in SuperSet with Mangalloy stays, Mangalloy fork paired with Cyclone derailleurs and Sprint shifter with 'Light Action' {I won't be so quick to turn my nose up at one of these in the future} Dia Compe Q5000N brakes.

This should be a great riding bike. My first Bianchi had a similar mixed ChroMo frame and Mangalloy stay arrangement, but wif ChroMo fork, and rode quite well.
Bianchis '90 Proto, '90 Campione del Fausto Giamondi Specialisma Italiano Mundo, '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '86 Volpe, '97 Ti Megatube, '93 Reparto Corse SBX

Others but still loved; '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape SLX Bertoni "Speckled Trout"
