Frame, paint and decals look really tired to me. I would pass.

I can't believe someone would ask $425 and not take 10 minutes and spend about $5 to put some bar tape on this bike.

Note, the best deals on Craigs List will often not last long enough to post to this forum: "Is this a good deal?" and get replies. You are best off developing a list of acceptable bikes, dialling the size you want, and then pounce on a deal when it pops up.

It probably is worth around $300 in your hot market. If the paint, decals and frame are perfect in person, maybe a tad more.

Hello it might be just a bit small for you. any idea what year? I do not see a black CdI in the calalogs with that type of decals. also the Ofmega Master derailuiers and Shimano 600 tricolor brakes seem to be a odd match for stock parts. unless he can produce a catalog to prove it all orginal I would offer 300. it does not index, you need to find brake hoods and tape the bars. plus from the looks of the decals that frame has really been through the ringer. OH that is a Campione de Italia and not a Campione del Mundo right?

Borderline on size...my blue jean inseam is 29" and I ride 54's C2C w/ ~31" of standover and 54cm top tubes.

Way over priced.

$300-$350 seems more reasonable, maybe less because of questionable component changes. I couldn't find any other examples of this bike with Shimano 600 brakes.
