If it does what you want, then enjoy the bike. Is that a Campy shift lever? The pump pegs are nice.

The brake levers look like they were intended for flat bars. Make sure they function as you need them.

The frame is second to the bottom tier (has English BB?), otherwise very cheap. The pressed fork tips, and smashed simple rear dropouts with the "claw" derailleur are bottom of the line.

Anyway, it can make a good town bike, perhaps with new brake levers.

Not sure what you/he wants evaluated.

You are in italy, so a value is meaningless since im surrounded by corn and soy in iowa.

The bike is...interesting. mix of very low modern components and oldrr Campy. The cableties instead of metal cable guides and brake cable routing are not often seen, thats for sure.
