Marinoni value

What would this be worth? Seller does not have any info on the ad but it looks like Columbus SL (?) frame and fork, and I believe all campy components. Any thoughts?

Look at the landscaping and fit. I would guess someone who couldn't get comfortable and just wants it gone.

Thanks guys. I was lucky enough to be the first responder to the ad and went and got the bike today. It is even better than I thought. It is the Leggero model (mid 90s I think) with Columbus EL tubing, and mixed Campy Chorus and Record components, and pantographed Cinelli stem and bars. Some scratches on the paint but all in all in good rideable condition. I will recondition it from top to bottom, put new grease throughout and replace bar tape and cables and housings. Tires are Gatorskins in good shape.

The seller was selling it for his son (didn't fit him, it was an old roommates bike) and knew it was worth more but wanted it out of his garage ASAP.
