Bianchi Stelvio good value?

Howdy,

There is a Bianchi Stelvio on my local craigslist... look in decent shape and has complete capagnolo corsa components and bianchi crankset... look all original execpt for handle bar stem which the owner told me he switched out to accomodate his longer reach.

add is here

https://fortcollins.craigslist.org/bik/1638232022.html

from what I've read on the forum its a nice frame and good components... any idea on value and is $150 worth... I think so just want some more expert opinions.

Thanks

Ian

I guess thats because I went ahead and got it... frame is a little small for me 52 cm and I'm 5.9. Rides nice just need to be cleaned up. It fast. I'll try add get some pictures... don't know how old it is but guessing 70s.

Took some picture using my camera phone of the Bianchi Stelvio I just got for $150.

Can anyone help me date this bike? Has columbus steel, campagnolo corsa components. I'm really enjoying riding it even if it is a little small for me.

Any idea on value and if $150 was a good buy? Frame is in good shape... a few scuffs and nicks. Just needs a good clean and tune. let me know what you think

any Columbus framed Bianchi you can ride away for $150 is a good deal. the value? hhmmm I think about $150 I'll look it up when I get home over the weekend but something tells me that model only ran for a few years around '84 or so.
