Thanks for all the help. I picked it up last night. The paint was not as nice as I had hoped but overall the components were in nice shape. Kind of a mixture of parts....... Dur-ace,105 and Campagnolo. The seller raced it in the 90's but has not rode it over 10 years. The serial number begins with a 4, so I am guessing it is a 1994. Surprised me that he agreed to my first offer of $250, but I think he just wanted it out of the garage.

I want to keep it as original as possible, but the wheels are tubulars. Does anyone still ride these? They still hold air but the tires need replaced. I am thinking it would be cheaper just to buy new clinchers that to have these rebuilt. Wheel building is one thing I have never done on a bike.

Wouldn't you know it the Columbus sticker is ripped right at the wrong spot. I am not sure what grade it is. maybe someone else can decipher it.



And a little better one than the CL pictures.
