1980's Sintesi Comp - What do you know about it?

I am looking at a 1980's Sintesi Comp with a frame just like this one, but with the original Shimano 600 group. I can't find anything on Sintesi other than their current lineup of bikes. Does anyone know anything about their older steel-framed bikes (Made of Tange 1 tubing)?

Usually when a Google search returns no information it's a bike that has been re-branded for a department store or in this case a bike shop. Tange 1 tubing and 600 components, sounds like a nice bike.

A case of "buy the bike, not the name"?

Yes, but the price would have to take in consideration the lack of brand recognition. The tubing and parts gives it value, an unknown brand reduces that value.

Sintesi was "Bikeology bike shop" house brand when Alan Goldsmith owned the chain. This was before he opened the "Supergo" chain. Supergo was bought by Performance Bike Shop/Nashbar.
