Bottecchia - no info, one photo

I don't know much about Bottecchia other than they are a seemingly decent Italian framebuilder. This one has little info and only one photo. Is it worth $400? Any guesses on the model and type of Columbus tubing used?

Nice older road bike, rides great.
$400

Hard to tell from pics it does look to be a higher end model from the early 80's with a some none original components, the tubing decal looks to be red which would mean SLX and the shifters look to be Campy friction type so it might be worth checking out. As for value I would guess $400 is about right if does actually have mid level or better Campy components and the frame is SLX.

Scroll to the middle (post #4) and there's one that has a color-matching fork like this one does. Columbus Aelle tubing. No guarantees though!

Thanks, that was helpful. Yeah, I suspect this is an ADR Replica with Aelle tubing. No chrome fork and chainstays. Worth a look still, I think. The size looks like it may be too big for me, however; I'm guessing maybe 61cm.
