    ~89 Bottecchia Touring/Cross (not sure which), Full Campi 7 (again, not sure what)

    I picked up a lime green Bottecchia. I believe it's an 89 touring or cyclocross frame with Full Campi groupo. It's in great shape. I thought it would make a nice little cruiser for the wife, something she could use for gravel roads and such to spare her Specialized Ruby the abuse...and the retro look is cool. Some of my cycling friends thought I should determine what I had and mentioned the Campi MTB groupo may be somewhat rare/collectible.

    This is my first post here so I'm unsure about the procedures. I've attached a number of pics.

    So, my question is, what do I have and what's it worth?

    Personally I would continue to abuse the Specialized and safe this for Sunday rides around the park.

    I am pretty sure that is a Euclid group, Campagnolo's first full MTB group.

    Great looking bike!!

    I have no idea if the Campy MTB stuff is worth money but I would guess that it is. It has no practical value as you'll never find parts if something goes, but it's a neat oddity.

    That frame alone is probably worth a couple hundred if it uses 700c wheels.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html
