Help identifying a Bianchi

Looking at a Bianchi in LBS

Campione D'Italia

Does anyone know how old this is? I'm thinking early 90's as the shiftting is not on the downtube.

Is it a good frame?

Do I need to get more info and or pics?

Whats it worth? I think I can get it for about $300 USD

ya... more info and pics. it is more than likely a very nice bike and probably worth $300 if it is not beat, but the vintage is important to that particular model (they made 'em for about a gazillion years, maybe still do.). What grouppo? Does the bike have Reparto Course stickers anywhere? Is it celeste (in color)? That makes the whole Bianchi thing worth a lot more, for some reason...

Yes, please tell us more. My early 1980s Campione d'Italia was spec'd as follows:
Columbus tretubi frame (d.b. CrMo 3 main tubes);
36-hole Campag. Record low-flange hubs;
6-speed Regina America freewheel, 13-15-17-19-21-23;
Modolo Speedy sidepull brakeset, nonaero levers;
Campag. Gran Sport road quill pedals;
Ofmega CX crankset, 52-42 rings;
Campag. Nuovo Record derailleurs, downtube shifters;
Campag. seat post;
TTT/Bianchi handlebar stem;
Ofmega headset and bottom bracket.
Nisi (I think) clincher rims.

This is the lightest, fastest, twitchiest, stiffest bike I have ever owned. It's a blast, but strictly a fair weather friend.
