Late 80s Colnago with "issues"

Went and looked at it today but I'm not even sure what it is. Not decals other than the headbadge. Seems to have Triomphe components on it. Two bottle brazes and a pump peg are throwing me off from the supposedly late 80's day. Freewheel vs freehub. Paint has a lot of issues with a couple of spots of surface rust. Both hubs have lots of play and some in the BB. Seatpost seized but I finally got it to budge a tad. Rusted fixing bolt for the stem so who knows. Mismatched wheels, front was replaced. Original owner used it to race crits. No sign of front end wreck though.

The real kicker was the rear wheel was not centered straight. On the side where it was closer to the chain stay the adjustment screw was actually farther forward than the other side. Opposite of what'd you expect if that was the issue. Then the kicked was a visible kink in the seat stay right by the braze on support of the stays. The stay seems like it's a bit bent out, maybe that's normal?

Chrome fork, one chrome chain stay, foil head badge.

Anyway, not even sure what model it was, year, or tubeset. Any ideas with my limited info? Oh, and what's an honest value...

Steel is real...and comfy.

Looks like a mid-80's Super I had recently. Mix of Triomphe and NR. Tubing was SL if memory serves.

If there are frame issues, they will determine the value... Need pictures of problem (?) area.

Looks like a mid 1980's Colnago Victory/Triomphe. (looks like victory cranks) They sold for about 1k back in the day and were basically a colnago super frameset paired with Campagnolo's Victory group. The bike is current shape about 350-450.

I'd pay no more than 250.
