    Boeris Italian Bike

    Hello-would appreciate some input from the folks out there with a frankly intimidating and impressive amount of knowledge! Been scouring the planet for a reasonable priced colnago (no joy ;( ) but came accross this-owner seems a bit fly but is asking for 250 euros.... verdict?
    I know Boeris don't make bike any more and were based out of Torino-sole campag dealer for the region too-and this seems to have Valentino throughout. He also has an '87 Bianchi converted to SS and what he claims is a 1960 Olimpia and an Atala which he originally said was 1970 but now says is 89 (stickers on the downtube a bit of a giveaway.... ) slight difference.

    Anyway-good deal or one to pass up on my hunt for a stonking Colnago classic?
    cheers,
    Greg

    For 250 euros I'd pass... It seems quite much for an old road bike that isn't in a great condition (as far as I can see). He must be pretty sure of himself to ask that much for it. Is there anything special about it I'm missing?

    I was more interested in the provenance of the frame-sometimes these companies have interesting histories and the price seemed to suggest that too but I think he's just chancing his luck!
    cheers
