Bianchi Eros Year built and value

I just started going back into the Bike exchange after having hip replacement surgery on June 3 and I spotted this Bianchi Eros that one of the volunteers was working on. Thinking it a good candidate for a sale bike I took it home and gave it a good cleaning and a few upgrades like matching rims, Panaracer Pasala PT gumwalls, new tubes, bar tape, and a Bontrager seat , all in an effort to lighten up the black and blue color scheme . The bike looks much better now in my (humble) opinion.


Now I am trying to decide a price to put on it


The serial no. on the bottom bracket reads 007486 Anyone know what year that translates into?


Other specs


Steel cro mo frame with Made in Italy sticker "Bianchi exclusive SuperSer.2"


weight of bike all up 23.4 lbs


Bianchi quill stem

ITM super europa aluminum bars

Michi Aluminum head set

Campi Mirage Brakes, Cranks. front and rear derailleurs with 3 x 8 drive train

700 c wheels with Matrix front rim and 105 hub

unknown rear rim with shimano 600 tricolor hub and early 8 speed hyperglide 12-26 cassette


Any info on the year and price point for SF bay area appreciated.

P.S.

Anyone know where I could find replacement hoods for the Campi Mirage brake levers on the Bianchi. The ones I have found online have a cut out on the inside facing side of the hood for the shift lever . These don't. Also the hoods have Campagnola in small script molded into the rubber along the vertical cut out.

The ones on the bike are shredded at the bottom. I could use black or gum rubber.

I'd put the date around 1999-2001. My wife bought one with that color scheme around then.

It's earlier than 1999, as that is the year that this model went to TIG construction. Mirage came out in 1995, so it should be no earlier than that. It's obviously been frankenbiked to extent but based on the style of Ergo levers and the single pivot brakes, I'm leaning towards 1995-1996.
