ridden less than 100 miles and put in storage. Model Competition "C" Titiano
I was originally interested in this bike to use the rear derailleur for rebuilding my '74 Ron Cooper. After getting acquainted with the bike, I realized how unusual it is to have a 40 year old bike with mint condition original parts. (Mine aren't bad, but not in this league. I got an estimate of $1000 dollars. I'm hoping that's because I took lousy pictures. I am willing to forgo a couple of hundred dollars to pass this bike along intact (as long as my wife never finds out).
Given the scarcity of the components in almost NOS condition (look at the pedals) and the level of milling and pantographing, I am asking for an appraisal of the bike taken as a whole and also as the sum of its parts.
1) 1st gen Super Record rear derailleur pat '75 with titanium bolts
2) Elegantly re-profiled and relieved Super Record cranks (imagine mexico style cranks done by bugatti)
3) Milled pre-CPSC Super Record brake calipers.
4) 1st Gen Super Record Bottom Bracket, with alloy cups, titanium axle
5) Olmo pantographed Cinelli 1a stem
6) Milled shift levers
7) Cinelli Unicanitor suede saddle
8) Super Record pedals with titanium spindles
Thanks for looking,
PS. It was suggested to me to keep it to ride. I have good bikes to ride, just not in this condition.
