Looks like Shimano 600 equipped.
Is it worth 250?

Yes, nice!!!
Needs a good cleaning, new handle bars tape, change the brakes, maybe new cables, truing a little bit the wheels.
What kind of Columbus tubing is it? Doesn't says SL or SLX.
I looked in the chart, but no answer.

Are you sure the 53 isn't a 58? I think that reflects the size of the frame. The tubing is probably a mix of SL/SP tubing based on your decal (https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...-question.html) and the size of the bike.

Tretubi refers to the 3 main tubes being of Columbus steel. Despite the decent Japanese components, the tubing is likely Alle or chromoly, not SL/SP. In my limited experience, if it carries an SL or SP decal, then the entire frame is typically also SL/SP.

TreTubi = 3 main tubes, SL?

I had a Tretubi Faggin that was a blast to ride.

Nice pickup OP-love the color!

Very nice bike and easily worth $250.

Your model is the Arrenacio. It has the same geometry as the Gap, which is a higher model and all SL, while only the 3 main tubes on yours are SL, as some here have mentioned, and the other tubes are Columbus, but it's not stated which they are. The Gap also comes with partially chromed fork and chain stays, while yours is painted. This model only came in red apparently.
