Can you identify this bike? Giordana?



Anyone have some information about this bike? I know the brand is Giordana and it's made in Italy. I'd really like to get an idea of what it is worth.

Thanks!
Mike

I'll give you $50 (it's worth more than that BTW).

My guess that's a late '80s early '90s frame with some later Campy Ergo stuff slapped on.

what does the small sticker at the top of the seat tube say?

by the way, I hate to say, but I have four sets of those brakes, and they're
the worst brakes I've ever had!! My old, single pivot Shimano 600s are better.
I only bought the Campags coz they were cheap and I liked the way they looked,
especially the model (~'93) with the VERY shiny, cone-shaped, pivot bolt

Here's the sticker under the seat:



I emailed Gita and they told me that it is a XL-Super manufactured in 1995. The frame & forks sold for $1000 new. All of the components are campagnolo and appear to be in perfect condition.

I'm going to start riding, and have had this bike in storage for quite a while... just trying to decide if I should keep this bike or sell it and get something closer to my size (this is a little tall). I've had a few offers of $200 for it, but surely it's worth more than that?

Thanks for all the input!

Mike
