Interesting Italian Malagnini

So, I am looking at this nice bike but can't find much on the builder. Any idea of it's value or what I should offer for it?

Custom made by Verona, Italy, frame builder MALAGNINI. Columbus SLX with chromed lugs (with MALAGNINI initials), chrome fork, seatstays and chainstays. Many details like chainholder, customized DuraAce seatpost as seat post collar doesn't have a seat bolt.

8 speed full DuraAce 7410 group. Mavic ceramic rims on DuraAce hubs. San Marco Regal Girardi saddle. ITM stem and 3T Racing Team Service handlebar. Fantastic paint. Very good condition.

Beautiful bike...don't know the builder or his reputation.

Usually Japanese parts on an Italian frame = discount, but that might not be the case here. Tough bike to value...small name, but very attractive. Neat features, good condition and I like the gruppo. I'd think somehwere between $700 and $900 seems fair? That seems like a good deal for a buyer, but this might be tough to sell.

I'd research the builder first.

The name is new to me too. However a quick google shows them to me quite revered in Italy. Apparently Vittorio Malagnini apprenticed under Cavalieri, who also taught Confente. Dario Pegoretti claims Malagnini to have been a great influence on him.

Apparently his son Lucio has taken over the business but I don't know when this happened. The subject bicycle would appear to be no earlier than 1988 based on the style of the SLX decals.

If any member can provide more information, it would probably be Citoyen du Monde (sp?). If he doesn't show up, I'd send him a PM.

+1...or slotcar55.

I like it...if it were in my area, I'd take a flyer at under $700.
