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!

I'd suggest posting this on the C&V subforum http://www.bikeforums.net/forumdispl...-and-Inquiries
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.
