For $175, it seem's like a good deal.

The Campy components alone make it worth that to me, and the condition appears to be very good also. However, Zeta tubing is rather low-end I believe, just below Aelle and probably a tad heavier and I believe it's un-butted cromoly. But hey, it's still Columbus, so it can't be to bad!

As long as it fits you.....I'd go for it. I'd say pretty darn good deal for the money.
