^This. I had a Bianchi with EL OS go through my hands but was too small. Some day. If the frame fits build it the way you like without regard to what it's worth or the price of the parts and enjoy.

I have not read all the words in all of your threads. There is no magic formula for gaining instant knowledge about vintage bikes from a bike forum. It's like school. You go and learn, it takes time....

You will enjoy riding the Bianchi because it is Celeste. I can't comment on the Miyata as every one I have ridden was much later, (late 80's) but the top models did ride very well. I had this Bianchi...

I had one go through my hands and IIRC 500- 600 was the selling price on CL. That was 5 or 6 years ago and it had a complete tear down with all consumables replaced. It did not have bar end shifters...

How about a Trek 520? 1990 had 700c wheels, bar end indexed shifting, good components. As mentioned it won't be cheap compared to a 1990 similar road bike but it's almost modern and can be had for...

I start the bar tape at the top of the bars and use tape at the end near the shifters. I don't know if that is the correct way or most visually pleasing but it works for me and it's easy.

I don't...

I just picked this up last week. The intel from a previous post says it's probably made by Miyata because of of the diamond lug piercing. It's triple butted and very light. Nice paint as well.

It's not what you would call a restoration but the Eagle is shinier and it's rideable.
