Help dating Bianchi

Can anyone help me date this Bianchi and tell me what model it might be? Also, I'm not an expert on delta brakes. Do we know what generation these might be? Thank you!

I believe that's an 86. Looks like Mondiale or Super Leggera ?

Why do all the good bikes get posted after I go to bed. Formula 1 tubing was only used,at least according to the US catalogs, in '86 on the Vittoria and Trofeo frames. However they do not have this much chrome, none at all in fact, so I wonder if this were part of some sort of 'grass roots' sponsorship. I know a shop I worked in had a beautiful Turquoise Vittoria with a chrome fork.

The '86 Mondiale and Giro, so SuperLeggera that year, both used SL tubing and only had a chrome stay.

Do you have the cable guide for the rear Delta brake?

Good morning. No I don't? I'm not familiar with Delta brakes. This bike is my first experience. Does that attach to the seat post binder bolt?

Every time someone posts a request for 'help dating...' -- I wanna post a smart-ass remark like 'Get your own date!' or 'I've been out of the dating scene since 198x when I got married'


BTW, my wife is at least part Italian. None of her Grandparents were born in the US. She describes herself as a 'SloBoGo' - half Slovenian, half Bohemian/(Italian)DaGo.
