Could you please help me identify this Fanini. I know absolutely nothing about this bike, and want to know more! What year is it from, what could it be worth? What are your suggestions of what I should do with it, to whom to I sell it if it has a nice value?

Anyway, though I can't help with the specifics, it looks to be a nice period piece from the early seventies. Assuming all is original, the best clues may be in the derailleur and quick releases. However, I suspect that the RD may not be original since it appears to be a later offering than the shift levers.

Here's a link to where you may find more useful info.

Some closeups of the parts would be useful as a picture of the frame tubing sticker.
