Bianchi Limited_Italian made, Black/red decals?

Research tells me it's about 1985 but didn't find a definite answer on value in my Googling. 56cm C-T. Bianchi Formula Columbus tubing.
Good paint, no rust or dents. All Shimano 600 except the front wheel is not original. It has been replaced with a lesser hub but has a Weinmann rim that matches the rear Ambrosio in appearance. 6 speed SIS shifting. 600 pedals as well. VG tires. The Shimano brake hoods were toast so it now has new Cane Creeks. Components are VGC. Rides nice.

The market in SoCal seems a bit depressed lately but I don't know if it's the season or the economy. It's really not ever winter here. Do used bike prices pick up at all around Christmas?
Any input on value would be appreciated.

$250 here, maybe $300. Eastern NC. I really like it. I'd swap it to Campy and ride it.

Maybe $300-ish in Tampa. 1986 at the earliest. 600EX indexing wasnt available prior to that.

wrk101-Agree with your Cl observations. There are a ton of bikes on CL and more being posted daily. Some prices are absolutely ridiculously low - $60 for a $250 bike. I am in CT and it is cold and in the 30's right here -no more bike riding weather until spring.also see quite a few $4000 upper end road bikes going for less than 1/2 price - lots of despere sellers out there. time to hunker down and wait until spring.

I bought what I think is this same model a couple days ago on CL for $50. It's a Strada and I believe an '87. The cables are sun faded to a pinkish red color, but other than that it's in fantastic condition. I see I'm only a decade late to the conversation, but any idea what this bike is worth in 2019? I'm in the Boston area. Thanks!

Welcome to the forums. A Strada is a different model and was typically the bottom Bianchi road model, about 6 steps below the subject Limited, depending on the exact year. Based on the paint scheme, it sounds like it may be the 1986 model, in which case, if it really is in fantastic and ready to ride condition, it is worth around $100-$125. For a more accurate assessment, you should post pictures and the serial number.
