According to a magazine, Industrie Riunite Biciclette Spa( Corp.) had the Legnano in 1984. I don't know whether this company was connected with Bianchi then.
   In 1982 Umberto ' Lupo' Mascheroni who worked at Legnano from 1946 till mid 1960s worked as an advisor at Legnano half a day and opened his shop in the evening. Once he was teaching frame -building to a young man of Legnano at the basement of his shop.
   A characteristic still left on Legnano frames then ( also on Lupo and Marnati) was double tapered seatstays directly attached to the sides of seat lug ( Marnati sometimes used plugs.).
