Full Campy Bianchi - Value..?

I will be taking posession of this old Bianchi when I return to Thunder Bay in the Spring. The bike is full Campy Chours, with the exception of the wheels, which are a Record upgrade. The bike is in stunning condition and, for what it is worth, the ower gave me the original wheel set. There was nothing wrong with them.

Anyway, near perfect condition, full Campy eight speed Brifter setup. What do you think such a bike is worth?

Not Campy eight speed judging lever design. Looks like 9 or 10 . Looks like Racing 5 wheelset, but can not tell by photo, big value differece from racing 1-5. AL non Celeste frame takes away from value in the Bianchi world. Would need closer photos seeing actual parts and condition to even guess on value.

My mistake, the bike is a nine speed, not eight. If I know the fellow, and I do quite well, the wheels will be top draw, or close to it. When he does a machine, be it his 1949 Harley, or his 1969 Triumph Bonneville or this Bianchi, he goes way overboard with quality workmanship and he spares no dollar getting it right, or better yet, perfect.

Looking forward to the first ride.

I am sure it's a proper race bike. , Value is a hard call especially not knowing what wheels are on it. I am sure it's worth the sum of it's parts none the less , which most bikes are not IMO.

I think the crank is Veloce or Centaur, definitely not Chorus. Two wheelsets is always a bonus, hopefully the hubs are Chorus on the originals
