Unknown Ciocc - Age, ID, value?

Detailed photos on Flickr...

I accepted this Ciocc bicycle as partial payment for a Craigslist transaction. So technically I have $250 in it. It looks to be an original frameset with Campy drivetrain, wheels, brakes, and a Cinelli stem and handlebars. It has Shimano 600 brake levers. It's got rust but I think it could be readily cleaned up to be quite nice. Clearly it would fit a larger person at 64cm. I ride a 60cm so I don't plan on keeping it. I'm thinking this is an 80's era Pelizzoli built Ciocc but I don't know what year or model exactly.

I'm interested in anyone's thoughts on its age, ID and appraisal value. I am doubting I could get much for it here in South Carolina so will be looking to Ebay soon enough.

Thanks in advance.

The subject bicycle is a ciorca 1985-1987 Victory Special (aka CL 354P). Condition is only fair, it's a hard to sell size and it's got cheap replacement pedals, in addition to the levers. I don't think you'd get much more than $300 for this.

WOW! did the previous owner keep that on a boat? That will need lots of work to get a decent price.

Looks like a break-even, if you part it out. Wouldn't want to present the frame with corroded parts.

I got excited by the Ciocc name without knowing what I was really looking at. Lesson learned. The wear is consistant with a bicycle that came from the Charleston area - exposure to salty sea air. Hmmm... I should have just held out for cash instead of the bike. Ah well...


Might just make it a project and learn my way around another bike build... it's been a while.

Thanks for your insight T-Mar.

Just a follow up...
When researching this bicycle I sent an email to the Pelizzoli team and recieved this reply last night:
-------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Stewart,thanks for contacting us.
The frame you have was probably made for the european importer "Ten Speed cycles", judging by the un-typical engraving on rear bridge.
Unfortunately we don't have much information about this bike, since our brand was already sold to "Conti" at that time.
Is possible that for the american market this model took the name od "designer 84".
Sorry we cannot help any further.
Thanks, have a nice day
Marco
-----------------------------------------------------------

Nice of them to get back to me.
