1984 Olmo Competition WIW?

Hi,
I have a 1984 Olmo Competition, who's serial number is 58. I am trying to find some sort of value on it before I list it. Any feedback is much appreciated. I will try to add pictures to this post, but it was not letting me as it was saying no URL posts.Strange.

Your Olmo has the same serial number as mine . 58 is the frame size which I’m guessing is stamped on the BB shell. Olmo not a big believer in serial numbers. Olmos are nice but not desirable like Colnago, De Rosa, Pinarello, etc. Condition and equipment will be determining factors. Need pics.

Edit: Just saw the pic. Nice bike, good size, Columbus tubing. Can’t tell what group it is. There appear to be a lot of scrapes but might just be the photo. I’ll hazard a guess of $350. More if the paint is nice and there’s a Campy group hanging on it.

Oh great, Thank you. I appreciate the response and makes sense on serial #. I have had trouble attaching photos, but edited original post to add pics. Thanks

Looked at rest of the pics. That’s a nice bike. Fairly certain the Competition was further up the Olmo food chain so guessing a nice Columbus tube set. Group is Campy but looks like Victory or Triomphe. Not the most desired of Campy gear. I think rims are Ambrosio which are nice. Stem and seat pillar also nice.

The big wild card is condition of the paint. I can’t tell if it’s the photo or if the top tube is scraped up. I’m now leaning more toward $400-$450 on this one. Going to need a good cleaning and freshening to bring this much.

The frame is Columbus SL or SP (58cm is right around the size where most manufacturers switched). The components are Campagnolo Victory. This leads me to believe it's actually a 1985 model, possibly purchased in late 1984. The model name is actually Competition Victory and original MSRP was $919 US, though they tended to be heavily discounted. The condition is not great, especially the top tube. IMO, this is a sub $300 US bicycle.
