1980s Bianchi. whats it worth?

I bought this at a garage sale for $25, I've been looking around to see what year and model it could be and how much is worth. I know is made in japan, and this are its components,

serial number ds15439 brown bike

Suntour v-gt luxe---rear derailleur
SunTour - front derrailler
Shimano -dropouts
SR- crank set
Suzue-hubs
Araya- wheels
Laprade -seat post
SR road champion- handle bars

top tube measures about 23"
vertical tube about 24" (big bike)
I saw one similar that sold for $450 heres the link
https://www.re-cycle.com/bike.aspx?pic=3385

That's a pretty low end Bianchi. It would go for between $100-$200 around here.

Thank you for the responses....I do not know the model, you can see it anymore on the sticker...I was thinking it could be worth something close to the one on the link because they have just about all the same components except for the rear and front derailleur.

Japanese Bianchi, about 150-250$, fixed up an ready to roll. Higher price on link is attributable to market, (slightly) smaller frame size. Also, pricing in general on that site is high. As is, the price should be more along the 150 end of things.

450 is nutty, I can find a top end Italian roadie for close to that.

Post some better pics and tell us what kind of tubing it is made of (hopefully that decal is still there). I'll see if I can figure it out.

closeups of the brakes, derailleurs, and cranks are helpfull. are the wheels 27" or 700c?

thank you...I just looked and you can still see a little bit of the limited decal, so it is a Bianchi limited. I'll post some better pictures tomorrow...

+1 $200 in pristine, ready to ride condition, but it is not in that condition. With some work and a little $$, you could get it there for sure. In its current state, it is about a $50 bike.
