Unknown frame

According to the listing, is a 70s Japanese steel frame. Repainted as well by Marinoni. The owner claims that the chainstay does not have a dent, but it looks weird. What are your thoughts, is it worth $100 CAD?

The chain stay dent is original, offering crank ring clearance. Looks like a decent frame and $100.00 does not seem unreasonable. Knowing me, I would probably dicker a wee bit with hopes of getting it for less.

It would be awesome if he had the other black Dura Ace brake. I agree there is probably $100 worth of bike there

the welded fork crown appears to be below the calibre of the frame

Pretty sure it is actually a Canadian built Marioni nice frame for the price if good, if the parts are good 100 cad is a great price I see twice that in parts value alone regardless off what the frame actually is.

Those look to be high flange Dura Ace hubs.

Bikes this nice at this low of a price rarely last long enough to get the answer to: "Hey is this one worth it?" Savvy buyers are in their cars driving.
