1980s Bianchi (guessing Limited?)

Bought this bike today for $200 - it's a Made in Italy frame (my first) so got it to compare the ride to my recently purchased Japanese frames (Bianchi Sport SX, Miyata 912 and a Univega made by Miyata).

Frame has a couple decals but none showing model name. From searching this forum and google, looks like it might be a 'Limited' but the later '80 model doesn't have non-aero brake levers like this so maybe an early '80 version, or just a completely different bike?

Bike fits me well so not planning to sell, just wanted to know what this is and an idea of its worth. Has all Shimano 600 components and Ambrosia 19 wheels, frame is in OK shape - paint kinda dull, no/very little surface rust, everything is just dirty so will be doing a deep clean. TIA

Great looking Bianchi. You didn’t pretty good in your searching, you are the proud owner of 1986 Limited. The nonaero levers are correct, looks ’87 was the first year for aero levers on the limited.
