Medici Pro Strada Information Please

Hello I have a Medici Pro Strada that I Had Custom made in 1979 Here in So Cal its on the XXL Size at 69CM
Its all original ..Paint is Perfect (Black) with Yellow lugs.. Forks painted ...Matching painted Pump with decals on the Down Tube..Full Campi Super Record ..I have the Build sheet/Bill of sale...Trying to see what its worth As I cannot ride it due to a car accident... Is there anyone in the So Cal area that might be able to help with selling it ?

Thank You!

I have one, not that color, but the problem with Medici is they do not get much respect. That is why I got mine cheap. Why? Maybe, the turmoil surrounding the brand's backers, Mario Confente, some of the participants UNUSUAL exploits... don't know the reason, the earlier bikes like yours are I think well built as far as I have seen, beyond that... It will be worth more as parts and a frameset than whole.

I am 6' and comfortably ride a 57. A 69 would require a 5" taller inseam, which would make someone approximately 6'8" - 7'.

I think they were late 70's popular with the Sprinters, as Nakano (sp) World Pro sprint champion for quite a while used them. I have never seen them on a road bike before.

I learn something new everyday: titanium rims are vintage! Very flash bike, Otis! Hope you get your asking price, it looks worth it.
