1980's Bianchi Sport SX

Hey everyone! Here is a bike from a California craigslist ad. I know it's not worth the asking price, however I do not what is is actually worth. I would assume $150-$200 max. Am I incorrect? Can anyone contribute to this? Thanks!

Here is the link to the sale...

Also, below I have posted a few images that the seller sent me as well.

$400, in Bakersfield? When pigs fly. Your assumptions would be correct. If the seller truly thinks it's a $400 bike there would be no use trying to persuade him/her otherwise. That's a big leap down to $150-$200.

Everything in Cali is priced ten times higher than what it's worth. I guess that applies to bikes too. Is it bolted to the ground?

I'm not sure how firm he is on the price... I contacted the seller via e-mail again and asked what components the bike had. He listed the following...
Saddle; a serfas ARC dual density pro
Model; sport sx
Made in japan
Sakae sx crank set 52/42 (weird huh? It's usually a 38)
Shamano light action front and rear derailers
Frame; double butted tange steel
Wheel set; double wall Weinman LP18 with shimano hubs
Brakes; front & back dia-compe
Bars; belleri made in France
Tires; 3 month old kriteriums (kenda)
Cinelli bar tape
Silca impero hand pump made in italy

I agree it is a great looking bike but I think $400 is a bit much for an '86 w/ shimano light action

Thanks Bianchigirll, do you happen to know what the bike retailed for brand new in 1986? I am starting negotiations with the seller within the next couple of hours!
