Colnago with a Question Mark
So I saw this on a not-too-close-to-me CL... Is it legit? (Note the question mark in the seller's title. Makes me more than a little wary.) Also, of course, I'm curious where the BF consensus would place the value.

I got this bike on e-Bay about 15 years ago and never did anything with it. I know it could be parted out for more money, but I would rather sell it whole. It appears to be a vintage Cycle Cross bike, but I have no history, and the moving co. that sold it to me had no info either, so I will just describe the bike.
Note, People have asked weight of bicycle: Using a digital bathroom scale I get 19.4 pounds for the bike as pictured, so add the weight of your preferred saddle and pedals to that.
The bare frame is steel and weighs only 4 pounds, it has Campagnolo dropouts, no maker's mark anywhere on the frame, 54.5 cm seat tube (c-c), 56 cm top tube (c-c), 31 3/4" stand over height, Patent 80 Campagnolo NR derailleurs, HATTA Swan headset, Campagnolo seat post, Cinelli Criterium bar & stem, Campagnolo Victory wheelset with Clement sew up tires that still hold air, but should be re-glued before riding. Mafac cantilever brakes and levers, early Shimano 600 50-42 crank set and Shimano bar end shifters. I rode the bike a few times using a clincher wheelset and it is light and smooth, but needs a modern set of brake pads. I'm including a saddle and pedals since the bike had none when I got it. (they are seen on the saw table behind the bike)
