Help Appraising this '85 Atala

Hi All,

I'm new here and would love your assistance in appraising my '85 Atala corsa professioniti. I have been looking far and wide for images of a similar Atala and have not been able to find it. The only image I can find is from an 87 Atala Catalog where they describe the color as "Chrome Glazing". This leads me to believe that this model is very rare. I have included some pics for your review. I don't intend on selling it as I continue to ride it from time to time. Just want to know what the current value is. The component specs are as follows (to the best of my knowledge):

Frame - 53cm - Atala w/ columbus SLX tubing (decals not SLX, but tubing inside bottom bracket feels like SLX tubing)
Headset - Campy Super Record
Bottom Bracket - Campy C Record
Hub set (front/Rear) - Campy C Record
Stem - Cinelli Customized for Atala
handlebars - Cinelli
Crankset - Super Record
Shifters - C Record
Rear Derailleur - C record
Front Derailleur - C record
Seat Post - C Record
Wheels - Mavic Open 4-cd
Pedels - Look

Wow, that is a very special looking ride, definitely the Sophia Loren or Jayne Mansfield of road bikes! (Sorry, just watched "Will Sucess Spoil Rocky Hunter?" last night)

I'd say north of $1400.

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