1985 Pinarello Montello SLX

I picked this up on craigslist a few months ago and just got finished overhauling it.

Columbus SLX tubing, with Campy Chorus brakes, front derailleur, the rear derailleur is C-Record, wheelset has Mavic Open Air CD rims with Record hubset. The seat post is Campy aero, headset is Campy, can't remember if it's Chorus or Nuovo Record. The shifters are Modolo carbon.

I brought it into the LBS tonight and some guy asked what I wanted for it. I've seen the frames on Ebay for ~500. I'm wondering what it's worth?

The frame has the usual paint nicks and scratches, most of the decals are shot beyond the ones I replaced, but overall it rides smooth and straight.

Note - the pedals are on for the shakedown ride around the block!

I think that the mish-mash of parts detracts a bit from the value. Selling it as it sits would probably get you about $900 or so. A period correct saddle and a full Record group could get you $1200. As you say, you would get $500 for that frame/fork easily, perhaps more since it is red and the decals look nice to my eye.
