90s? Bianchi caurus 840 vento

Aside from the saddle, tri bars, and tt chainring(which i put on for a good time), the bike has a full Shimano 105 groupset. One sticker has Oria tc.08 hi tension written on it. the other is foreign to me. i read somewhere that this bike was only marketed in europe, and i'm unable to pinpoint the year it was made. i figured for $200 it was worth it though. does anyone have any info on it? The website wont let me upload the pic of the whole bike, but if anyone is curious, i can email it.

Thanks, Rich

We could use some more pics. Depending on the condition, a 105 equipped bike for $200 sounds reasonable; a high tensile steel frame, not so much.

Yes that is a European model. I think the fork is bent so I would likely pass unless I could get a $50 or more discount.

I think it's just the picture honestly. I already bought it. I can find ZERO information on it, if you have any available. Also, I've never heard of "Sun Mistral" wheels. Know anything about that?
