Under pressure...

To thin the herd...
Through various incidents and accidents (to quote Paul Simon) I need to thin the herd. I already have a couple of rarities on sale sites, and tbh I would rather keep this but I have very little idea of what it would go for. I hope this isn't breaching the forum rules but I really jsut need to know a ball park, which will decide if it stays or goes.

I'll have to defer to others, as I have no appreciation of the market conditions in France.

Well.............................. it's not exactly vintage. So, you could probably get a ball park idea of price off the "bicycle blue book" link: https://www.bicyclebluebook.com/

Maybe more 'classic' than 'vintage'?

...there's a guy here in Sacramento, CA trying to sell a similar (but not identical) Colnago on the local Craigslist. Colnago Master Mapai Team - $2000
I think he started out around $2600. I think maybe Craigslist is the wrong marketing strategy for a bike like this, but I don't sell much. It's been up for about a month now.

Thank you for finding that, I have a much better idea of what it's worth now...

Actually, I was able to reference that Craigslist listing and while the same team, of family styling paintwork, the other bike is a steel, lugged frame, no doubt earlier.
Really a totally different animal.
I like the appearance on this bike better but have no idea on value, it is a bit "young", would reference the race history of the team and see if a success era springs up from the peloton to reference.
All in the marketing.

Understand on the need to raise cash, just of these times.

I would ask no less than 2500 (dollars -- or whatever the equivalent is in Euros) -- Mapei team livery helps the value a lot
