My eyes. The circus come to town?

Just kidding. I actually love the look of that bike. Completely different from anything I would buy, but it's a looker. 600 euro sounds like a deal.

Check the seat tube lug carefully. With a long seat post inserted so little, there is a good chance that the lug opening has become stretched. Other than that, darn nice bicycle... Wouldn't mind one myself and the price would not deter me, assuming that everything is in nice condition and working properly.

Thanx.
I think you should offer the seller 800

Ok, so I think the 600 would be a smoking deal if it was for sale around here in the USA. It may be different wherever you are at.

However, I'm not too great at guessing group sets for that era of bike. Is that all Campy Record? It would make some difference in the overall valuation of the bike.

That is a TALL seatpost, with a short stem. A bit odd looking of a seat too. Probably both will need replaced if the OP is shorter than the seller.

Good point to inspect the top of the seat tube very carefully.

crazy mix of mid-level parts, fork is not original to the frame - it would match the original Master from the 80's but that's a 90's frame, scratches on frame.

I'd say it's over-valued - maybe €450 max if I was looking but I'm not.

well, I checked everything working fine except the scratches, and maybe I can buy it for 500 euro because here in Finland 600 euro is a little bit expensive . thank you for helping

thanx for your opinion, the good thing is the price now 500 euro and all parts are compagnolo 980 just the hubs are shimano 105 and the wheels are Ambrosio 19 Elite. Is still good price or not ?

I hope the owner has a 130mm hub in there, how many gears are on the rear wheel?

I think at 500 euros it is an okay deal but you are essentially paying for the frameset, the components are pretty so-so. Too bad there is no original fork.

When buying a Colnago, the old adage of "a bird in hand is worth two in the bush" definately applies. If you find a desireable bike at a decent (below FMV) price, grab it! Of course, this assumes no frame damage and paint is restoreable.

The lime green is a little OTT. With a post that high, I would expect all the weight to be on the pedals and bar! I happen to like the 80/90's Colnago paint scheme's. Hard to touch up though.

The tires and tape push the senses waaaay up there.

Black would help return accent to a paint scheme that needed none.

I think the bike is basically worth the price as presented. You kind of have to realize the potential that it will look 100% better without the green stuff and a more suitable seat and post at a normal height. With these mainly cosmetic things sorted out and the paint touched up nicely I think it would sell for 700-800 euros.

Does the bike fit better than it did for the seller?

500€ would be a good price in the USA.

Probably also good where you are, but each location is different.

Check for stolen and make sure you can protect it from theft.

As a USA price 600 seems the high end of OK. Cause of parts.
" 500 seems like a winner, whether you keep it or improve and pass it on.
Cheers, Eric


I think Aalto must have rolled over in his grave, when that bike crossed the border.

Welcome Point1, even if you do have a questionable(!) design sense.
You will find others like yourself, don't worry.

I like it!

Frame and fork in good condition would go for USD $500-800 in the USA. Campy 980 is a lower end group, but I think yours looks like a good deal.
