Since I have been commuting to work, many coworkers tell me about their bikes. Ones says he used to ride and has a 1988 bianchi trofeo that he would like to sell me. What items should I look for on a bike of this age? Thanks in advance for you help.

Frame tubing. Highline would be Columbus SL and/or SLX. Components: Campy would be cool to see. I'm not too up on 1980s Bianchis so I don't know where the Trofeo was in the line-up. Shimano 600 is today's Ultegra and indicates a serious bike. SunTour Superbe Pro was, to many, as good as it got in that era and Cyclone wasn't far behind. Good luck.
