Medici Pro Strada

Went to look at a Trek and came home with a Medici, 59 cm, paint is excellent, chrome is pitted, but looks OK as long as you don't look close. All Campy. What do you think, put tires on it and keep it, sell it, or part it out. It's probably just a hair too big, but rideable. Of course I can't really tell till I get tires for it as I have no wheels to fit it. 130 mm rear spacing.

Is it Tange Prestige or other tubing?
I had a Medici Pro Strada with Tange go through my hands a month ago. It was a 57cm and a tad small for me. We could have traded!!. Mine had Shimano 600 components. Super nice ride and in terrific shape. If it was 1 size too big for me I would have kept it so if it will fit you ride it.

OTOH if you got a good deal on it you could make out well on a flip. I did. Google the bike and you will find out about Michael Howard the hair bandit. Very bizarre.

Nice looking bike, great colors/

It looks like those Campy parts are all Super Record, which I think are worth some money on eBay, although I'm far from an expert. But I think you'd probably do pretty well parting it out.

Those wheels are different - looks like a V shape?

As far as making it rideable, can you buy tubular tires at a reasonable price?
