So I just about had a heart attack when I first saw this a week or so ago, I've always wanted one of the orange team motos. Unfortunately it's way too small for me, and when I went to take a look at it it's not in the best shape in the world. A lot of the campy stuff is still there, but the cranks and rear derailleur have been replaced, and I just had a hard time justifying spending the money when I couldnt' use it. Well, it's a week later and I still kind of want it, lol. I guess my question is if I took the time to restore it a bit would it be worth flipping it? I could probably get the guy down to 150 or less I'd imagine.

If you get him down to $150 and willing to part it out and sell it part by part, it might worth your time, depending what "campy stuff" is left and the shape the frame and the components are.

I'd do it in a hot LA second. Also, looks a little bigger than 51cm...did you measure it?
