Small Colnago with Chrome Fork and Headlugs

I've been out of the C&V world for a while, but I just picked this up for my wife to replace her Cannondale. I'm not sure what I have or if it's worth anything... I don't even know what decade it was built.

Here are a few pics in as purchased condition. Mix of Ultegra/600 and Dura Ace parts with 9s drivetrain. Parts are all functional but will likely get swapped out for a mostly alloy Campy 10 group with alloy stem and seatpost.

Columbus SL sticker. Lots of nicks and scratches, but no dent and everything looks straight. Appears to be full chrome underneath the paint.

OK, since no one has weighed in, I'll give a swag of $800 to $1100. $1100 price may take either a super hot market or eBay to garner. Rims show a lot of wear, so maybe a little less.

Boston is a high dollar bike town but I'd guess closer to the low end of thrifty bill's valuation ($800) given the wear on the rims and the pedals. This bike just looks a bit tired and beat. Certainly well worth fixing up with campy stuff.

Thanks for the comments.

Not planning on selling it (unless my wife decides she prefers the cannondale) so I’m more interested in what year and model it is. Doesn’t seem to have a serial number that I can find... perhaps I should post it in the main C&V section.

To address a few of the comments... These annodized mavic rims tend to look like that after only a few hundred miles in my experience. The wheels have 600 tri color hubs and are straight and spin very nicely. The pedals are cheap plastic put on for a shakedown ride for the Mrs.

I think I have most of the parts on hand for a 10s alloy campy build with either neutrons, eurus or some handuilts to round it out. It will be much happier wearing Italian components!

Your right on the rims. I have MA 40's that were like new, and have wear like that after a thousand miles.
