For $33, I'd check it out. If it looks to be in good shape and a decent frame, it's worth that. Of course, it's not a Colnago and you should remove those stickers if you get it.

Trekking bike? Yes

Colnago, not so much....

See if you can talk them down to $30.

This is an example of why the manufacturers don't sell replacement decals and don't like to see copies of their decals being sold on the open market. Those are replica decals and they are not even applied in the correct places on the bike. The one decal you are indicating with the arrow says "Colnago Super" and would have been applied near the front of the left chainstay. Hope Springs Eternal. But it's not a Colnago.

It is a very low end bike from the 1970s, not really worth much time or effort as they are easy to find assembled and in better shape for about the same price.

Keep looking

When I see bikes painted weird or have strange decals, I assume the bike has been stolen and doctored up to look like something else.
