Need your assesment of a late 1980s celeste Bianchi

Hey guys,

I'm having trouble figuring out what model and year this bike is, mainly due to a lack of any Bianchi catalogs online. Do any of you happen to know anything about this bike?

The owner says "This is a late 80's Bianchi Road bike made in Italy. Has Campy hubs, brakes, shifters and derailleurs."

Asking price is $450. Too steep?

Thanks in advance!

IMHO yes this is well worth $450 and if it was my size I would be after it. it is a '89/90 Giro with a SLX frame and Athena group sans pedals.



if it is a 59 or 60 I'll take it if it does not fit you

The frame might be worth the asking price by itself.
