I'm a complete beginner to bikes, though I'm already riding plenty of miles every day commuting and going around town (and possibly some longer trips when the summer starts).
I was thinking of picking up a road bike as I'd like something a bit quicker than my Fuji suncrest in the good weather, though I don't want to go crazy, and may sell it again when the winter comes along, or if I find myself needing the cash.
All that said, would you guys take a punt on this campagnolo valentino from the pictures available? It's on an auction site for around 15 euros with no bids at the moment, and another site for a fixed price of 50 euros. It looks a little rusted to me, but I wonder if it could make a fun project that wouldn't require more than a clean and tune-up, perhaps some new screws, or whether it's just a cheap headache that'll never be worth more than I can get it for.
Here are the links:
(Sorry I can't post pics, they're a bit too big I think...)
