here it is-
it's seen a lot of street time. it's still in very sound condition. 55 cm, campy record hubs, gs brakes and cranks. what do you think the price tag should be without the saddle?

I am suprised noone else chimed in on this. any idea what is original to the bike? Columbus comes in lots of variations, this may be a lowerend frame like a Tre Tubi Alle.

but still in this condition I still would not give more than 150 even if it was SLX

OH are you buying or selling?

As a complete bike maybe $200. Parted out it looks like this:

Wheelset w/ NR/SR hubs: $75
SR RD: $75
GS crankset: $50
FD: $10
Brake calipers: ?? maybe $10 but could be more depend on make/model
Seat: $50
Beat to death F&F w/ Columubs tubing: $100

I know it adds up to $350 but someone would have to strip the bike, clean all the parts, market the parts, sell the parts and ship the parts. Thats alot of work for a minimal ROI.
