How much is this Bianchi worth?

Hulo.

I need some advice on this here bike from all the Bianchi experts out there. How much do you think is a reasonable price for this Bianchi, and are there any parts about it that seem a little fishy? I realize the images are too small to make any precise judgement, but the brakes for instance look somewhat foreign to me. The fork doesn't seem to have any bianchi insignia on it either. Does anyone know its precise model name?

I intend to go look at the bike eventually. What indicators should i be looking out for that would tell me that this bike is worth its buck.

Thanks

It's a mid to late 1970s Rekord, though I'm not quite sure which variant. It's appears to have an Ofmega crankset and a Campagnolo Gran Sport rear derailleur which is normal for the Rekord 748. Yet the front derailleur is Valentino and there's no apparent Columbus decal. This may be a hi-tensile, tubi calibrati frame, typical of lower Rekord models. The brakes are Universal and are period correct, though I can't positively identify which model. Lack of pantographing is also correct for the era.

Value is going to depend on the frame material. Get a pic of the decal just above the shifters, as I believe it's the tubi calibrati decala and it amy also include the model number. Also, get the serial number, which should be located on the collar of the upper, head lug. That will tell us the exact year. Since your concerned about the brakes, a better pic would help in determining the exact model.
