My wife has a classic Bianchi and the brake bridge has Bianchi stamped into it. The serial number stamped into the bottom bracket tube will ID it. If you look around the internet, maybe on this site, you should be able to find a list that will tell you the year and model based the serial number.

Might be Italian, but Bianchi USA has had Taiwan contract builders for a long time..

Rt cup Rh treaded, 36 mm rather than LH threaded British thread is a clue..

For the era, it has all the right bits for a midrange quality frame; good but not too good. Why would someone fake the sticker?
