La Fausto Coppi

Dear Friends,

I apologize for the quality of the pictures but I came across with this ad. The seller asks for 100 Euros - do you think it is worth ?

Please guide me

Entry level model in poor condition, with lots replacement parts. It looks like a hi-tensile frame based on the size of the seat post relative to the seat tube and dropouts that appear to be crimped into the stays. Mismatching wheels are often a sign of a crash. Not a Coppi but trading on a similar name. Probably mid to late 1980s. This would be a pass for me.

Agreed. There are nice Coppis out there, but that is not one of them.

What bugs me is the « La ». Why a feminine pronoun when Fausto and Velo are both masculine. Maybe la bicyclette?
