early/mid nineties Bianchi Virata

I know it's not a classic or collectible, but it's time to sell her and just want to know what year she's from and how much she's worth.

Bianchi Virata, in navy blue and white (I've seen these in all sorts of colors, mostly celeste, but never navy and white).

Bought it used about four years ago, came with:
All Shimano 600
Shimano Hyperglide 8 spd.
Tange fork and headset.
I assume these all came stock.

I changed:
WTB mtn saddle for S. Marco Concor saddle.
Stock bars and stem for Nitto Moustache h bars on a Nitto Dynamic stem.

I used to ride her a lot, but show her lots of love, the 600 group works perfect.
Cosmetically there's expected chips and scratches. No serious damage.

So?

Virata

I recently purchase one with upgraded STI levers in the blue and white on Ebay for $170 without a wheelset. Unfortunately these bikes are a great deal, but not much in terms of resale. Good luck
