I found this 83'-ish Battaglin at my LBS. They got it as a trade-in (who would do that?). I'm considering it, since my current foray into Battaglin buying wasn't as successful as I hoped: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...battaglin+alex
I'm still going to build up the Alex framed one, but I'm also still on the lookout for that dream bike.
This one is close. Columbus framed (forgot to see if it's SL or SLX) - in moderate condition. Gipiemme dropouts, crankarm/chainring brakes and FD. Champagnolo RD, brake levers, Headset, seatpost etc. It's mostly complete except for the Mavic rims on period-correct Specialised hubs.
The guy's asking $750 and can't budge on the price because of the trade-in. Am I crazy? I could get a pair of record hubs for the wheelset, but I'd be in deep.
