Bianchi Campione D'Italia (Mid-1980s)

I just picked up this bike on eBay for $350. What do you guys think? A good deal? I had been looking for something like this and it's local so I can pickup, so I jumped on it.

Looks like a good deal to me. But Ive been wanting a Bianchi like that for awhile now. You really cant go wrong, especially since you are able to pick it up and avoid shipping!! Love the saddle. Good score!

I thing $350 was a good deal. I would guess at mid '80's as well. Not the top of the line frame or components but a nice bike and probably a nice ride as well. I don't think you can go wrong with a Bianchi from the '80's especially in celeste and at that price.

Probably made in Italy. I have a Celeste Compione, but mine is a later model, (95 or 96) made in Japan. I still like it.

Awesome, it's my first vintage bike, but I'm planning it to use as a commuter and neighborhood bike (I'm moving to Chicago soon).

If you were also going to be an incoming student at the U. of Chicago Law School and lived in Hyde Park, I might think we were twins.

Your geometry looks very similar to mine, so it should be a fast and fun bike, if a bit harsh or twitchy for long and/or relaxing rides. I am sure your SunTour rear derailleur outshifts my Campa. NR!
