Bianchi Strada LX

I purchased this bike today and bit curious what it's actually worth, paid $10 for it at Goodwill. I don't see a S/N number anywhere or any numbers period. Although I could be overlooking them. Thinking about taking it in and getting it worked over if it's worth something besides $10.

great looking Bianchi, it appears to be about an '88 or '89 model. it looks like it is in great shape and it certainly is worth more than $10. cleaned and tuned up it will make an excellent ridding beginners bike for casual group rides and just general enjoyment. if you looking to flip it I waould say $130 or so in ready to ride condition.

Thanks! It will be for general riding (mostly to work and gym) but I'm hoping to do a spring tri next year. I'm starting to think the reason they sold it for so little was that they didn't know how to air up the tires.. never seen a presto valve till this bike!

That looks familiar. I bought that bike from you last week. I guess I could've offered a little less Just kiddin, $80 was fair. I already swapped all of the components with my other bike. I'll take some pics tomorrow.
