Early 90s Casati Ellisse

Not sure of the year but it has a Campagnolo Chorus group set.

Thinking about buying it but not sure what it is worth.

Bump. I was surprised not to see any response. Are Casati's not sought after bikes or not common.

Probably just not common. If it was a Schwinn Le Tour I could give you an estimate, on this bike I have no idea. How much are they asking?

I've got a Casati Gold Line S.

Almost tried an Ellisse a year ago, but the owner was firm at $700.

It had Athena, but was a little rough to take the leap.

The pictured Casati looks nice. Does it have any special frame details?

Looks good and is nicely equiped. Not sure on the value, but it would be interesting to know. I picked up an Elisse Due (EL OS) frame a few months back and need to build it. It has very nice details.

With chorus on a lesser known frame...I'd estimate $600-$800, depending on market and condition.

Aside from the left side crank what is Chorus? I see what looks like shimano brake levers and calipers, and a Mavic(?) HS.

Better/More pics and info may help, but I agree it is not a common brand like those dime a dozen De Rosa and Martini bikes

As noted above, I picked this frame up a few months ago. The detail work is very unique and IMO is of the highest quality and looks much like your bike. Type of tubing on your bike will impact value. I cannot comment on ride for this frame, as it still needs to be built.

Well I have been outbid. I wanted the frame only and planned on selling the rest of the components.

I must be patient I guess. Not easy being short and on a budget.
