I need help identifying this wilier triestina

I started negotiations with the owner few days ago, but since I'm new in all this, I don't know anything about this bike according to these pictures he sent me. Could someone please identify model and components on this bike. How much should I offer to him?

Looks like it has the desirable chromatovelo finish. Pictures aren't the best; can't make out components. Assuming a consistent Campy group and chromatovelo finish, somewhere in the $500-$1000 range; not cheap. Crank looks like drilled campy record; are there any pantographed parts (ie WIllier on stem, etc?).

Does it fit you as a rider? Flip versus rider pricing are two different things.

Well, that their team copper color. I see an old style Columbus SL/SP decal and what appears to be short Campagnolo dropouts, which should put the frame circa 1978. While the frame is good, there appears to be a lot of mediocre parts. The rear derailleur appears to be a Campagnolo 980. The crankset lots like a swaged unit from a 2nd tier company, maybe Ofmega. The brakset appears to be Universal 68. The wheels do appear to be Campagnolo Record hubs with tubular rims and the front QR not locked. Bottom line, there's minimal value in the components, but they're hung on a good and desirable frame.

Gali was/is a decent components company but they used Simplex for the derailleurs and that doesn't look like those but the shift levers do. The crank looks to be swaged is is a fairly inexpensive crank and the brakes have no micro adjustment but are rather open or closed. If it fits I'd be only a couple hundred at the most and that would be if the frame is a full double-butted chromoly Columbus which with this parts group it might high tensile steel. Tread lightly.

My recollection of Galli is somewhat different. They were most famous for their brakes, which go back to the 1930s. The Criterium derailleurs, which were introduced in the mid-1970s were solid, well performing alternatives to Campagnolo. They were notable for a sealed cartridge bearing pulley. I don't recall them having any ties to Simplex. I believe that was Ofmega.

Regardless, even if the components are somewhat better than orignally thought, it should not make a big difference in the value due to their relative obscurity. It certainly wouldn't take it into the realm of a Campagnolo Nuovo record equipped bicycle.
