Hoping for an ID and value on this Bianchi w/Dura-Ace

Hello, this seller's description is minimalistic, but at least there is a drive-side photo. The rd and hubs are DA, at least, and it looks like the crank is as well? Ad says the DA components are original. Can anyone help with an ID and/or suggested value?

Thanks!

Looks to need a full overhaul, poorly maintained, missing brake hoods, pre STI. Looks to be 80's or early 90's. Would need to know frame material, but would guess its pretty decent given the DA components, unless its a built up bike. I am thinking 300. but would press for less given that there are several hours and a couple hundred needed to make it nice.

EDIT Hope you are shortish its a small frame.

looks like 1984. likely one of the japanese built models. there will probably be frame sticker(s) to indicate origin. some japanese built bianchis come through with a bridgestone keystone logo stamped into the steerer.

ask for more and better pics. The color is wrong for '84 more like '86/7 and I don't think the DA is original unless it was put on at the shop to get the customer the size color frame they wanted.

That could be a Columbus Formula Two frame but better pics and info is needed.

thanks Bianchigirll. was thinking that by the '86-'87 time they would have been coming through with aero brakes and indexing. guess not.

It was way too late for me last night and I couldn't find a catalog. I just looked around and this may indeed be an '86 Giro stock w/ Dura Ace exposed brake cables and all. SL/SP frame too!

If the tubing comes back decent and the DA group is complete and workable I could see paying $300, but probably not more than that. Start taking money off for the non-DA parts and other issues.

Check the stem and seatpost to see if they're stuck. Seatposts jammed in that far always scare me, especially on a badly neglected bike.

Verrry interesting. With this prompt I was able to find it in the Bulgier (sp?) catalogs... sure looks like the spitting image. I am having trouble getting in touch with the guy, but I will report back if I can. Unfortunately not at all my size but interesting nonetheless. Thanks BG and FastJake.
