84 Bianchi Special

Here is my 84 Bianchi Special. Swapped out the 27in Araya's for Bronze Araya 700c's. What's a fair asking price for the Bianchi if I decide to let it go? Here are a few pics. It hasn't been fully cleaned yet, and still needs a new chain and hoods. Thanks in advance for the advice.

I don't recall just why it needed new wheels.

It didn't. The 27in aluminum Araya's that were on the bike previously were just fine. I feel that the bronze Araya 700c's with Shimano hubs look better with the red and gold in the paint scheme. I had them laying around in the garage and decided to put them on.

Because at one time, or maybe still, Bianchi was owned by Piaggio. The Bianchis imported into U.S. droped the Piaggio decal in '85 when Bianchi U.S.A. took over as sole importer to the U.S. I am not sure when it dropped completely world wide.
