ok folks - the experts - i need some evaluation here - i have an inside track on this bike should i want to purchase it - its on the smaller end of what i would chose to ride (my assessment based on the headtube size) - i've seen it in person though only briefly - its a beauty imo - full campy brake set, drive set - the chainrings are guerciotti though
anyway - this is gonna be wall art unless i buy it - it wasnt for sale per se but now it is
well - its not cheap either
before i tell you the price - just curious what you all think of this type of build and what type of range you might think reasonable
thanks in advance folks

Hi Marley, I do not know too much about this Italian builder, but I just wanted to give my opinion that it is a lovely bike. It is definitely a keeper! I'll take a guess at the price at 350.

it is a beauty isnt it...and i wish it was 350 :(

You should definitely buy it, so I can enjoy it vicariously through you.
Seriously, don't spend too much on it. But it sure is nice.
flash, Fausto Coppi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fausto_Coppi) was one of the greatest cyclists ever. From your wording, I can't tell if you know that. I know nothing about the bikes that bear his name. I assume he had at least a hand in their design or marketing.

tom - i would love to buy - but ok - its way outta my range - 1200$
ouch - i wanted to see what was the word on here
and then see if i can get him down some
i mean - he doesnt ride it
a bike like that - hanging on the wall...
anyway - i'll bet the opinion is gonna be that the # is way high
speaking of coppi - i saw this book 'fallen angel' that is a bio of the man
great reviews - i love sports bios so i may pick it up
when i was researching magni purchase i came across some very cool info on him as a pro
tough as nails these guys were
tom - you read the coppi book?
