Please help ID my old Bianchi part 2!

ok...I finally got that bianchi 'Rekord' I bought on ebay from Germany..nice looking ride! And I will actually take it for a spin tomorrow. But I still don't know the year...here are some pictures from the posting, as well as some close ups of the frame sticker/serial number on the head tube...so, I am thinking mid to late 80's? Also, its obviously not a Colombus steel frame, but this other type...just as good? Thanks in advance! BTW...serial number is "7100876"...

the Decals and mix of components, Campi, Ofmega, Wienimen make me think of a '86ish bike, with the Synchro being added later. but it is a European market bike andthey are different from ours so it couldbe as late a '87 or 88 are the Synchro shifters running in friction mode?

Hi Bianchiigirl! Thanks for responding...The RD shifter is currently indexed, but my bike shop guy showed me how you can tighten the outer nut on the shifter with your hand to make it friction. I'll keep it indexed, though. How about the TTS frame decal? Was this steel on par with Columbus, or of lesser quality? I'm getting off work, so I will be hitting the road with this Bianchi today for a little jaunt.

TTS was bianchi's proprietary tube-set at that time. Its not going to be on par with columbus SL/SLX/Chromor, however, it might be just under columbus GARA or AELLE, which would make it a middle-end tube-set and still very much considered a "vintage lightweight"

Thanks, peacob...this is my first vintage steel bianchi, so I like to know about it! Took it out for a 35 mile spin out to red rock...it sure rides nice! A very solid feel. I already swapped out a few things: black selle turbo saddle, campy victory levers, campy record brakes, and new black cables...I dig it!
