Torelli wwith Capagnolo Veloce group

So this girl agreed over the phone tonight to save the bike for me to purchase for $125 in 3 weeks. Now, I am very new to the whole Campagnolo parts etc., and especially Torelli bikes. This bike would most definitely sell for a lot more than that in Portland, correct? If anyone could give me some insight, ti owuld be greatly appreciated!!

So the pictures she sent me will not upload and im far too tired to fix them. She said its probably 8-10 years old, 54cm dark metallic green with yellow Torelli decals on front forks and DT I believe. Its got a Capagnolo Voloce rear derailer, brakes, front derailer, crank set, headset, and the cable housings have the logo on them. It has a 7-ring rear cluster and the shifter look to be right under the brake levers. It is a triple as well. SHe recently added a black Salsa stem and new Michelin tires. The bike looks very clean condition wise, be really filthy and wuite obviously needs to be cleaned and overhauled. which is not a big deal.

Not such good pictures to work with, but it cannot be too bad. The Veloce components are probably worth the price of admission. Go for it.

If this helps, my roommate just sold this exact frame for $300 to a kid building a fixed-gear. $125 is a damn steal.

A few more. Can anyone estimate the worth of this bike by looking at the pictures and knowing some things about it? I was thinking when I get it to just clean it up a little and post for $500 in Portland?

Hello guys, do you have anything to chime in on here? This bike is going to be a flipper for sure for $125. I was thinking I could sell it for like $500? What do you guys think here? Please let me know if you have any thoughts!!

I didn't know Campy made any 7s Ergo, so that's a little curious.

And are those monoplaner brakes?

And yes, I think $500 is possible, but you might make more parting this out.

$500 is optimistic. $350 max, at least, down here in Miami.

Hmm, yeah I was thinking about parting it out. What do you guys think I could get for the complete Campy group? I could probably get $150 for the frame is what I was thinking no problem. My market is insane, it's the Portland Oregon market. I have been seeing like older Treks and stuff with 105 groups going for $400 easily. I was thinking $500 would be very doable if I cleaned it up nicely. Does anyone have any clue what model this is and or any history behind it?
