Mystery "Miyata" - possible flip bike

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/ant...292069374.html

So I'm looking at this bike as a possible flip opportunity. The ad says it's more or less full campy, from what I know I'd say the cranks and FD are super record, the pedals might be as well. Other than that it's a bit of a crap shoot, especially because the RD is definitely not super record, or even nuovo record by the looks of it. I also can't seem to find anything that would indicate it's a miyata? What do you guys think?

Also, by flip I guess I really mean part-out, if that helps in the decision.

Itís Impossible to tell what brand it is by those photos. It could be. If so, maybe a repaint? I donít recall one that shiny. Matter-of-fact, everything is shiny. Are you sure you want to flip a possible flipped bike? My first reaction was, Hell Ya. Now, not so sure. If you can make it up there, it might be worth a look at that price.

yea that was kind of my gut feeling, it just seems like things have been switched out. I'm going to go take a look at it tomorrow, if enough stuff is either NR or SR I'll grab it, otherwise I'll just call it a nice drive and leave it at that, lol.

I agree with Rothenfield1, do you really want to buy your flippers from ebay? I would like to see better pics of the Campi. the RD looks like Victory so is the rest Victory, GS or NR? leave that bike for some kid who really needs a nice bike but can't afford something more expensive.
