Ciöcc Designer 84 Microf. C 40 frame

Hi there. Im new, and I'll start by letting you know that my bike knowledge is extremely limited. My partner found this old Ciocc frame in the trash a few years ago, and I am hoping to find out more info on it, specifically opinions on how much it might be worth (in this condition, or if we cleaned it up a bit). We aren't sure yet if we will sell, but money is tight and it might come down to selling. If so, we want to make sure to get some idea of a fair price (i know, its worth what somebody will pay for it, Im in the vintage fashion business so I get that part.) But i figured this forum is a good place to start.

You can see from the pics that it isnt in the best condition, a tad rusty, stickers peeling, paint chips, etc. I took photos of most of the important parts i think, but let me know if you need to see more! Thanks in advance for any help, I really appreciate it.

In that shape, maybe 100-150. Maybe. I wouldn't be the buyer.

slimewarp, welcome. Considering the previous home of the frame there is a very good possibility that the crank and bottom bracket are not going to come off the frame without a great deal of effort. Possibly the stem as well. That is something a potential buyer will ask you, or check on themselves. Don't get your hopes up for a windfall profit.

Thanks for the welcome!

I def don't have any expectations of great profit, if we end up selling it. All the moving pieces move rather smoothly, nothing is rusted to the point of immobility. It's definitely somthing to look into though, thank you for the info!!

The frame, although high end, needs a lot of TLC, and as noted above, I'd like to know how easily those parts can be removed. I would think though, with the components, if removable, that I would ask about $200 for all that. If the stem is stuck and/or if there is a lot of rust on the inside of the frame, then less.

Thanks! I'll have to check if it is easily removed and go from there. Any reccomendations on gently removing the rust without doing damage to the paint (if possible)?

Do a search in the Classic and Vintage forum - there are a couple of good threads on this. Naval Jelly for spot rust removal. Oxalic acid bath or Evapo Rust for large areas. Aluminum foil with some water on the chrome will shine that up pretty nice.
