Identify Bianchi Model

Hi all,

I got this Bianchi from a guy in Liege, Belgium for a few hundred euros. I don't know a lot about bike but it seemed like 300 for a retro bianchi was decent. Turns out its slightly on the large side for me so I'm thinking about selling it. Hoping you can help me with model etc as I can't find anything on the frame that identifies it. Here are some images in my dropbox https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jw3nic9cybyawb8/KMGE438PkV

Any help appreciated, cheers

Rory

what I find odd is that you chose to show parts of bike and NOT the tubing sticker /decals/ headbadge ...........to me this looks like a sales pitch

I purchased it in Belgium last year, second hand. But have no idea where the dude originally got it from. I never met him, my girlfriend's mum did the deal for me as she lives there.

European bikes differ from American models but my guess is a Bianchi Trofeo about 1988

I agree but perhaps closer to 1998? A very dirty one at that.

1998 Bianchi Trofeo - BikePedia This is most likely based on the US market model but looks pretty close.
