My father has a 1975 blue & yellow Grandis frame & forks with full Campi equipment. It is in Excellent Shape! Does anyone know the value of a bike in this shape. Any and all info greatly appreciated

Do you have photos?
there's little info on the net about the brand. I did find this link: http://italiancyclingjournal.blogspot.com/2007/08/visit-to-grandis.html
Seems this 1975 of yours is an earlier frame as they only started marketing the frames under the Grandis name is about 67. Photos would help, otherwise any frame tubing stickers, details on what Campagnolo equipment, etc will help. Being a fairly unknown brand, the value will depend (if attempting to sell) a fair bit on who sees the ad. If someone knows about the brand and wants one sees it, they may be willing to put down more for it than many others who just see it as another 70's Italian frame.
found this site: http://www.cicli-berlinetta.de/ciclib_bikes.html
which has a Grandis for sale for over 1200 Euro. Over all their prices seem... high.

Of course, just to get a basic idea, there's always Michael Kone's 90s article on Sheldon's page which devotes a few lines on the worth of Grandis (http://www.sheldonbrown.com/vrbn-g-n.html#grandis).
I've seen one nice sample and another went off on eBay last year that was pristine. I believe it went for $1500 but it was showroom, including the Campagnolo NR group.
