Unknown Bianchi

I recently purchased a used Bianchi road bike and would like to know more information about it. There is no model name anywhere to be found on the frame. It is a 12 speed. Here are some bits of information about the frame.

1. downtube- Edouardo Bianchi sticker. A 1980s or 90s Bianchi design I believe.

2. TIG welded, Winpista handlebars, Shimano components.

4. "Made in Japan" sticker on frame.

5. Bianchi Serial Number LS292622

6. Photo: See attached.

Yes it does have the golden arrow drivetrain and diacompe brakes. So do you think it is safe to say this is an 1983 Sport SS?

Thanks!!
