I'm contemplating whether or not to buy a Bianchi vintage mixte bike. I was told that it's a 1986 Bianch Strada but I have never seen a serial number like this: 51027563 (all numbers no letters). Photos are attached below. If someone knowledgeable about Bianchi bikes could answer these questions it'd be of tremendous help!
- Is this bike a 1986 Bianchi Strada?
- Given this 8-digit serial number is this a real Bianchi bike (and not a knockoff)?
