Late 60's Bianchi value

Hi All,
Not sure of age,my brother got it in '70-'72 used.It's in a bit of rough shape(rust).SN 050-469258 on frame and forks.Has Campagnolo shifters and derailers.Bianchi emblem on handlebar tube went missing.Any ideas of value if I were to sell it as is,and also if I were to give it a decent resto?
Thanks for your input.

PS Best place to list this? Ebay? Craigslist?

If it is in very rough condition, as is maybe $25.

Fixed up? That depends on which model it is, what quality steel was used on the frame, and which Campy stuff it has on it. Plus, how good of a restoration job you do.

eBay would get you a worldwide audience, so prices on there can go higher. But only on a restored bike.

Post some current pics if you can.

+1 Rough shape, very little. Rebuilt, restored, rust treated, it could be worth a decent amount. Without pictures, component models, and so on, hard to say.

Very likely worth more as individual parts. If you clean up the parts: derailleurs, shifters, brakes, levers, wheels, and so on, you should do a lot better. A rusty frame is not going to excite a buyer.
