Cinelli Supercorsa 1985...what's this worth?

This listing says...

Cinelli Super Corsa Frame 54 or 56 cm
Cinelli forks
Campagnolo Headset
Campagnolo Brakes
Campagnolo Seatpost
Campagnolo BB
Campagnolo Levers
Volare SLX Cinelli Seat
TTT Bars
Hand made Italian Signature Stem

...but the frame appears to be bare metal, aside from the fork. opinions on current value and/or potential value with clean up and service, not including full build?

Need more pictures of the bottom bracket shell, lugs and seat stay. On the bottom bracket there will be a serial number, the first number is the year. As far as the value, $350 and up. No decals subtracts the value a lot. Getting a reproduction helps, but has to be disclosed on Ebay. 3TTT bar and stem is sacrilege on a Cinelli, thats the first to go!

For the record, Gruppo Spa (Columbus tubing and Cinelli) bought 3T in the 90s and then sold it in 2006.

I'd say with the components around $400.

I'm so glad I passed on that. Thank you so much for the info.

His CR ad didn't have any images from the side, revealing that the paint had been stripped (conveniently). I requested those images in an email. He was asking $500.

$500 isn't too far off the mark, he probably padded the price a bit in the hopes of getting $400. It is really too bad he stripped off the paint, he lost $400 right there.

Did he say who's signature is on the stem?
