Bottecchia Road Bike for $420???

Folks, I know zero about this brand other than it's a good quality Italian brand. The bike in the Craigslist listing below is my size. Is this something I should get excited about or is it a nice bike at a high price?

It was previously listed for $450 'firm', now its $420 obo. To be honest, I'd much rather hold out for a Celeste Bianchi. What do you think?

I think it's on the high side. I just bought a SLX Bottecchia with chrome lugs and a nearly full Super Record group for $425. (pictures are coming as soon as my new bars arrive) If your aching for the Bianchi, I'd say hold out for it, they come up all the time.

Thanks for the response.
I'm going to ask for no further responses because I just found out this bike belongs to another BF, C&V member who I have respect for.
Thanks.
