Smaller front wheel bicycles became popular in the late 1980s with the influx of women into triathlons. There were literally dozens of models, so they're not as rare as you think. There is a thread on the forum dedicated to this bicycle style. I know Bianchi produced the Sport SX in this style, but this appears to be nicer. Those look like 600 Ultegra components. The decal style indicates circa 1988/1989.

It looks like the top tube is bent, not just dented.

+1, that's definitely a bent top tube. Now that I acessed the link I can see that the components are Exage Sport, so it is the Sport SX model. I'd appreciate the serial number for my database. TIA.

Cute Bianchi! That TT does look a bit bent. I ish it had 2 700c wheels I would love a pair of the Araya rims in that condition.

I believe Bianchi made the "Terry" Sport SX in '87,87 and 89.
