Bianchi , REKORD 840 , Celeste

Hi There,

Just wondering if you guys could help me with a value for my bike. As you can tell by my user name I'm more into BMX which I started racing in 1984 & finally packed it in 2009 . Still ride though . I was lucky enough to have this Bianchi given to me roughly 4 years ago by a extended family member who had it sitting in their basement collecting dust for many , many years. I believe the bike is mostly the way it came originally came from the factory when it was purchased other than the rim switch I have done to make it more friendly to use for pleasure riding ( I kept the original rims ). I have no idea what year it was even made & have searched a little on the web with no luck. Thank you in advance for your help.
Here is a component list.
Bars= 3ttt mod. Competizone
Stem- 3ttt Touriste
Headset- Campagnolo
Brakes- Universal , Super 77 (brake hoods on levers need replacing)
Cranks- Ofmega
Shifters & derailers (front & rear)- Campagnolo
Hubs-Campagnolo
Rims-Velocity Super V- currently, Originally Ambrosio Montreal which I still have.
Tires- The tubulars were toast when I got the bike so I when I had the rims swapped over I just went with reasonable priced tires & tubes to fit the 700c Velocity's
Seat- Concor Supercorsa Confort
Pedals-crap, that was the only thing not on the bike. so I just threw some Welgo clipless on it.
As for the condition of the frame , I'd say good but not mint. The paint has ciips & the decals some scratches other than that its good. btw the seat tube is a 53 & the head tube emblem is a raised square with the Bianchi logo on it if that makes any difference.

Again, thanks for any help , if I can give any more detail let me know , my camera is not very good but I could try taking more photos.

Hi CDN_Bmxer, welcome to the forums. the Canadain bikes are a bit diffferent from the US bikes, so I am not sure exactly what it is. perhaps some of the other Canadain C&Vers come along they will have a better answer. in the US I would say this is a around an '84.

Well I guess it being a Canadian bike very few people know anything about it. From surfing the net, ebay etc I've come to the conclusion that the components are of good quality for the era but still I still know very little about the frame & fork , oh well I like it so good enough. Maybe someone will pop out of the wood work who knows something. Thanks to all who looked at the post.

the frame is likely some type of columbus, maybe a TreTubi Alle or something. I don't think the fork is original, is there anything on the crown?
