It is a sweet looking bike:

(Stock Photo from BBB)

Experience the classic feel of chromoly with Masi's Speciale Corsa. Sporting a compliant double-butted frame and straight leg fork,

Hubs: Formula
Tires: Kenda Kontender, 700 x 23c
Spoke Brand: Stainless-steel
Brakeset: Tektro dual-pivot
Shift Levers: Shimano 2300
Pedals: Aluminum platform w/clips and straps
Rear Cogs: SRAM, 8-speed: 11-26
Saddle: Brev. M Perforated
Handlebar: Masi aluminum
Handlebar Stem: Masi
But, when you get down to it, the bike was only a $765 bike 7 years ago.

I.E. Pretty low end.

It means that it will never be a big collector's item, "NOS" or not.

Yet the 2300 is a solid groupset, and it should serve you well.

It might be worth looking at the value of a similar new Masi for comparison. I'm not seeing the same model being offered, but I'd guess they would price it around $1000 retail. But, the bikes I'm seeing have somewhat better groupsets.

I'd probably put the value somewhere between the $250 that @Poguemahone suggested and 50% of the MSRP, or about $350. But, I can also be somewhat optimistic with the pricing.
