Coppi-Fiorelli value? rank in the Fiorelli hierarchy?

anyone have any sense of whether this is worth $300 being asked?

Apparently Fiorelli made every quality of bike - from soup to nuts.

These Coppi fork badges are kind of interesting. though the other lugwork doesn't particularly grab me. But goodness knows -- this could be one of those Holy Grails of bike hunting.

Except for the brakes and levers, it seems to be kitted out with mostly Campagnolo, but whether GS or NR I cannot tell.
Rear dropouts appear to be "Campagnolo" (I can just make out the trailing "o")

any comments, insights, value guesses or warnings would be appreciated.

The parts appear to be Record but the frame doesn't make much sense. The graphics are modern but there are no shifter bosses, yet it has bottle bosses. A repint with some upgraders? Frame workmanship is mediocre. I'd pass.

$300 is high. It's kind of interesting in a weird sort of way, but I wouldn't pay $300 for it.

Paint really hurts the value.

As a bike, and the parts shown, $300 is tops, the kind of price where you could buy it and part it out and have a frame for very little.

I too think it has been upgraded at the respray.

Is the size right for you?

Much too expensive. The bike has no style, keep away from it!
