Are you asking about the value of the complete bike itself (as shown) or just the frame and fork?

That's an interesting-looking car in the second photo. Porsche 928 with some sort of tuner body kit?

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

$650 - $900 for the frame and fork is what they actually sell for on the Bay - depending on condition.
As a complete bike, add $2-300 for a mediocre or mixed group of parts. More $ for a full matching Record group, of course.
Again taken from the "Sold" listings.

This sounds about right. For the bike shown, I'd say maybe $1000-1200.

As a Supercorsa, I wonder why it doesn't have the chromed chain stay on the drive side.

Nice catch - if it is a repaint the value will decrease by likely a third.

The mid-eighties Supercorsas came in both road racing geometry (catalog says "universal purpose") and crit/TT geometry ("stop-watch racing purpose"), so it would be helpful to prospective buyers if you specified which geometry the frameset has. I bought a 1985 Supercorsa frameset in 2013 assuming it was road geo, but discovered when I measured the frame that it was crit. I haven't even bothered to build it up.

My frameset has a 74 STA and 75.5 HTA. Trail is 42.5 mm. It's way too twitchy for my riding style, and if I had known before I bought it that it wasn't the road version, I'd never have considered buying it.



My $.02.

I have an 87 Road Geometry and have ridden the Crit geo. The Crit is a little faster handling but I certainly wouldn't call it "twitchey". Both are amazing Frame sets.

after finding this link and examining the lug details and the rear brake support..i am starting to think it is a 70s frame...Anyone care to chime in on that? (https://www.steel-vintage.com/rare-c...m-1970s-detail)

I'd need more pics to make any contribution. The old links don't work and the two current photos don't show enough.

It is an early 80's frame, 1983 or earlier.

Those lugs were last used in 1983. I would bet the serial number (on the bottom bracket) tells the year in that era Cinelli.

That era was only one geometry, they changed later.

Latest pic shows a brazed-on front derailleur tab, which would make it no younger than '83.

I'm not a Cinelli expert but from general frame construction perspective the FD braze on in conjunction with over BB cable routing is unusual.

No, not really. Typical of the early 1980's.

That would make it a 1981 frame, the 215th built that year. The braze on FD is an anomaly, perhaps added later.
