Scapin with Campy Gran Sport and Cinelli Stem and bars - Columbus tubing

Looking for some pricing ideas for this bike.
Paint is scraped in some places - headbadge sticker has a sizeable scrape on it too. But no rust - components are in great shape.

It's a Scapin. Columbus tubing stickers on frame and fork - but sticker doesn't indicate type of tubing.
No serial number, but has 54 stamped on the BB.
Measured seat tube is 54cm Top tube is the same.

Has Campy Gran Sport front and rear derailleurs. I assume Gran Sport shifter too.
Campy Gran Sport crankset
Campy Gran Sport Hubs I presume.
Ambrosio EXTRA Elite Aerodynamic rims

Cinelli Campagne Del Mondo bars, Cinelli Stem.
Cinelli Volare SLX saddle. Kinda cool.
Campy headset, but I've no idea the model. It doesn't say record. Looks like chromed steel. Not aluminum.
Campy clip pedals
Modolo Speedy brakes and levers
SR Laprade seatpost.

Here are all the pictures of the bike:

but, I've attached a few here too.

2nd tier gruppo, smaller name builder. I think $450 is pushing it. Scapin is noted for poor paint, even by Italian standards.

Thinking around $300 max. Might be Tretubi. Probably a pretty nice rider.

I haven't ridden one, but the one I had pass through my hands was not impressive at all. Lousy paint, poor workmanship...pretty crappy looking bike. Maybe it was a bad one...it happens.

I don't see a crappy bike. The lugging is simple, but good. The decals could be better, but nothing about this bike seems poorly made. Of course, I ride 58cm and 60cm bike so I can't really ride this one to get a nice feeling.
I'm thinking 250 to 300 is pretty fair for this bike - considering I could part it out and make at least that on the components alone. Not that I'll do that.

I was talking about the one that I had and flipped, not this one. At 250 - 300, you're doing well. I think the right buyer would pay a bit more - 400ish seems reasonable.

I had the chance to ride a pretty nice Scapin once. I thad a beautiful orange Chromovelto finish and I think Victory actually. anyway the customer was complaining about lousy shifting and after two trips to the shop he actually allowed me to take it home and ride it! It rode nice and the problem was somethign simple like binding in the housing to the RD but the idiot mechanic in the back couldn't figure it out.

This bike? I kind of agree likely $300 top. needs some cleaning and I would remove those brake pads and put some koolstop in the holders.

can you post a close up of the tubing decal?
