Not familiar with a Coppi frame. Is it made in Italy? Or a BikesDirect production? Looks mid 90s.
I'd say it's underpriced, especially given the added components, the Chris King headset with the unknown fork.
But the Italian bike experts will be soon to offer feedback.

"or a bikesdirect production"? Ouch...definitely not is my best guess.

OP...are you getting bombarded with emails on it? Then, yes, maybe the price is too low. I think the price is fair - not too high, not too low.

Thanks fisherman, is that your frame? very nice, i think the price is good as well i've had a few guys hit me up on the frame but they are not too interested, and they have not been knocking my door down for it. Hopefully somebody will pick it up soon for that price and really appreciate it!

Yeah, that's my Coppi frame. It's a great riding bike, but just a touch too big for me, so it's just hanging around.

Sounds like you have it priced right...stick to your price because it is very fair.

"It says Matuzmaster.Hu on the frame so im guessing thats where it came from"...interesting. Sounds like you are right. Mine was built by Masciaghi, which I thought built all the Fausto Coppi's - apparently not.


Good luck with the sale DirtyHarry!

The images show detail, but I would change the images to show the frame in profile with the fork essentially in place, and with the headset if that is coming with it, and mention the fate of the bottom bracket cups.
I cannot assess the design of the bike as what "type" of frame it is from the images provided. A top tube center to center measure would be good too, and seat tube angle. All critical measures to evaluate fit.
