80s Marinoni: would you pay $500 CDN?

http://vancouver.craigslist.org/bik/366610742.html

It sounds good to my newb ears, and i'm drooling over the name:

--
- Frame is 58cm, Columbus SLX
- Beige color paint in excellent shape
- Campy Record C headset
- Campy Record C crankset, seatpost, brakes and levers with hoods,
- Record C shifters and derailleurs, non-indexed
- Campy Hubs, rear 6 speed
- Campy stem
- Cinelli "Giro de Italia" handle bar
- San Marco Rolls saddle
--

but I don't know anything about the condition. What do you think? He wants $500 CDN

So far my search has included scouring craigslist, this old guy's garage (he also asked me to be his painter's model; i laughed sociably), and this weekend for garage sales. it will happen.

Actually just re-reading, and does that mean it only has 6 gears?

means it has a 6 speed freewheel, the bike is 12 speeds. I have set the meeting with him for tomorrow and was the first to respond, he has promised me the bike. I desperately want this bike. Consider it sold. Don't even think about trying to steal it from me! I talked to him on the phone for a while. I wanted to pick it up tonight but he was busy. I can see the brakes are monoplaners. I am quessing it will be a mixed bag of campy as he seemed a little unsure. The frame is a 1981 according to the serial number he gave me, which gives with the decal. I am absolutely stoked. tomorrow will be torture especially since the components could be anything.... crossing fingers for as much 1st gen c-record as possible. I'm also crossing my fingers that he is somehow a little off on the size as he said the previous owner was about 6'2". a 58cm would be a touch small, hoping it is at least 59c-c.

So to answer your question, I can/will and am going to pay $500 in a heartbeat.

how about this one?

Hey don't give anyone any ideas!

It's rather fitting that it is a 1981 (year I was born) and will be the mate to my '81 pista. I might even switch back over to a period Super Record, who knows! I'm always so nervous even when a seller says you get first crack at it, because they could always sell it out from under you (happened to me before).

I didn't see the super.... so are you gonna post pics?

Yeah if it were my size I'd go for it! Hehe I just got a 90's Marinoni touring bike
Cyclotoine keep us updated and send us pictures!

I didn't know Campagnolo made stems. I'm clueless about C-record also, can't find info on the web.

Hey lets see that 95 special! I have a '92 which was built for a guy of my exact height and I mean exact. I asked how tall he was and got "6 foot 3 and a half" and I was like.. you have to be kidding... you are my height! Anyway he raced it so it is really really beat up with lots of sloppy touch up but no dents... I have a centaur group on it which is gradually getting beat up... But I have to tell myself if you are gonna ride it it's gonna get beat up, just ride and enjoy it.... This bike I am getting today however, should it actually have C-record will be on display and ridden with painful caution.

Edit: As far as I know, campagnolo didn't make stems and he is likely just mistaken and it is a cinelli.

The owner is a chiropractor, I have to wait till get gets home from work. It is in West Vancouver. Which, if you know Vancouver, is the western area of the North Shore or North Vancouver.

I know it's in Vancouver - I drove up this morning and I'm sitting outside his house now. He's supposed to be here as he had a late cancellation.

Wireless is a wonderful thing.

I'm so excited/paranoid/anxious that if that were true I'd probably fall into a severe state of depression and not leave the house for a week.

No, I'm talking Vancouver BC. I'm sitting here in my car right now.....seriously.

Actually, I was joking. It is Vancouver WA. I hope this guys shows...it's hot and I don't have air conditioning.

Beige? A fine color for a car or carpet, not for a bike.

Champagne might have been a better name for the color but I still don't like it.

Wow, this means I'm actually getting somewhere trying to pick good ones! People are scooping them while I wonder how much I like beige.

Cyclotoine, the other Marinoni is purple and pink gradient. But it might be worth looking at.

Helter,

How much riding do you do currently? Do I know you? If not we should do some riding. I live in central Van. Yeah the other marinoni has STI ultegra.. it should be a GREAT rider and the price is good. Actually the price is great of 8 speed ultegra, brifter and all. You will enjoy riding that one much more.

I am a Marinoni lover, some people collect MASI, I collect Marinoni... well I have 3 and one must go in order to make room for this one. This one is a 1981 frame and I will do just about anything for early Marinoni frames with the maple leaf cut outs... But they are all nice!!! The Purple one is probably mid 90s and a really nice rider... lugged steel probably and still a hand built Giuseppe bike! Go for it before it's gone too!

My commute is 25 km one way, between New West and Gastown. I don't think we know each other .. but if you're ever on the expo line bike route I'll keep my eyes open for that beige bike. I don't do much recreational road riding; like no drafting up to Lions Bay kind of thing. I wear regular clothes and aside from getting to work, just rip around for fun. Thanks for pointing out the other Marinoni; I'm going to see it on Sunday. I also am anxious and excited.

What would you recommend I ask/look out for?

Awesome. This will be a racing bike, so keep that in mind. No racks no fender! well you can use those strap on ones with the rubber thingies... Test ride it, make sure you are comfortable. Flip it over, make sure there are no dents or crack... look behind the headtube and make sure the paint isn't cracked (sign of front end impact)... make sure everything is in good shape. feel the braking surface on the rims to make sure it isn't concave (worn out).. all the regular stuff. Take someone with you who knows bikes if you can... sunday is a long way off I hope the seller doesn't sell it out from under you... it's really a good deal if everything is in good shape. If the parts look clean and have few scratches the miles are probably low.


you probably won't see me out on my soon to be new marinoni (knock on wood) unless you are riding on a fine sunday in the summer and I'll be taken it easy... This really is a bike that should be preserved and not used a daily rider IMHO. I just finished up rigging one of those quick release mount thingies for truck beds and that to my back rack on my touring bike... I tested it around the neighbourhood and it worked great. Can't wait to use it to bring the bike home.

No racks, no fenders is totally fine with me. Those clip-on fenders if anything. I was also thinking kevlar tires for fewer punctures? I'll feel it out. Thanks for the tips; I'm on a beautiful learning curve.

Good luck with the bike! I'm curious to see what the rest of it looks like!!

well turned out to actually be a 58 which I could ride with a longer seatpost... has fleur d'lis cutout on fork and downtube head lug. missing all but the seat tube decal... and dates to 1988. Has matching full chrous group with the exception of the pedal which are ancient look. Cinelli XA stem with giro bars. and concor max saddle not rolls but I love the concor max so it's all good. awesome NISI mixer clinchers, pretty narrow though. decision time.. put the group on the faggin? I know it would be more period than the super record on it now.... find a new frame? ride it with a longer stem and just enjoy on sunny days?
