info on this Bianchi?

Hi all,
I recently picked up this Bianchi on CL...
vintage must be the mid 80's....decked with shimano 600 group.
No model name on it, so I'm wondering if anyone here can tell me the model name and general info? Is it generally a "desireable" frameset?
botttom bracket is stamped on the drive side edge: 5203 and on the non drive side: 6 . M with BIANCHI spanning between.

It is very light, even with the giganto-cush seat the previous owner put on it!
it will take minimal work to get it back to OG, i have the drop bars, so i just need stem and levers.
Im very happy to have it, even tho its a lil small for me, but i drove a bit to get it, so i figured it would be a good loaner or for one of my kids.
Thanks in advance!

Hi chippy71 Welcome to the forums. That is a '86 Limited. The Bianchi Formula Two frames are great riders and have a little desirability but as riders not collectors and not as much a Celeste SL frame.


Clean and tuned up this should be a great rider.

Thanks Bianchigirl, im all about riders, so this info suits me just fine!
i wish it were 2 cm bigger though, it would be perfect....

in my research i came up with the same result for a model name, but in year 1987...not bad for a newbie, huh?
i also noticed there is a frame trade section here, maybe i canuse it to my advantage!
