What cranks are these with Bianchi branding?

I'm trying to get some info on these cranks. The Strada stamp on the back of the cranks along with the Ofmega stamped chainring bolts make me think they are Ofmega Competizione cranks, yet I've never seen any with Bianchi branding on them before. Did Bianchi use Ofmega for their cranksets? Any idea of what Bianchi they would have come on originally? Any idea on how much they are worth?



Thanks!

Bolts notwithstanding they look nearly identical to Campagnolo Nuovo Record Strada. The script on the back of the crank arms even matches mine. Do the rings have markings? I didn't look very close. Value would guess is $50 to $75 based upon condition.

Thanks for the info. I'll look at Velobase and do some more comparing. Here's a close up of the markings on the rings - looks like a sideways integral symbol before the 52 and 42.


EDIT: After looking at Velobase, the chainrings do no match the images of the Nuovo Record Strada (although the crank arms do look similiar). The Record Strada has an oval cut-out on the main chain ring whereas these are just a single cutout that forms a large rounded triangle when attached to the crank arm and look much more like the Ofmega chainrings (https://velobase.com/ViewComponent.as...m=115&AbsPos=0).

Ofmega. I have had several Bianchi's and a few other brands with those cranks, headset, hubs etc, 88 beat me to it.

Yup - Ofmega. Value - $50.00 tops, in my opinion.

+1 The Bianchi branding actually hurts these value wise. Hard to market as Ofmega so your limited to basicaly buyers who are looking for replacement crank for a lesser Bianchi.
