It looks a lot like my 86-87 Bianchi Premio, though I'm probably wrong because of the following:

My bike lacks the Bianchi coat of arms on the fork. (Maybe yours is an 84'-85' or an 88'-89'?)

there is no Premio logo on the top tube of your bike.

Though the geometry looks relatively the same, (IMO, but I'm a noob lol)

I have it posted on my profile if you wanna make some comparisons :)

Not much info on the Premio if that's what your bike is, other than it was on the lower end of road bikes from Bianchi at that time. Good luck, and nice bargain find!

looks to me like an '85 or '86. definitely chromoly steel, columbus formula 1 or 2 tubing. not sure of the exact model though.

The Suntour aRX group was from 1981 to the mid 90's. So your bike would probably be from that time period. The late 80's Bianchis had different decals. It looks like a fun bike though!
