Appraisal of this vintage Colango?
 
Could use some advice from anyone in the know. I dabble in road biking, but spend most of my time on a mtn bike. Someone is offering me this bike as a trade for some expensive, custom furniture - worth about $800. My question is: what is this bike worth? I see it has DuraAce, which is nice, but the condition is questionable and I don't know the model. Wondering if anyone does. I don't think there's any rust or anything...Anyway, any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks! Pics and specs below!

Nice bike, if it's your size. Pretty small frame though.

Thanks for the help. Just followed your advice. Yeah, looks like a 53cm-ish. I'm 5'11 so this would probably be a resale for me.

I think it's smaller than that. More like a 49 or 50. Too small for you anyway.
