Giordana Scorpius, how much?

A friend of mine wants me to sell his 1994 Giordana Scorpius. It is in great shape with full campy and shamal wheels. I have no idea what is worth. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Good call! It is columbus steel tubing but I am not sure of components. I know it is all campagnolo but not sure exactly what model. I can't find anything on any of the components.

Any pricing help would be awesome!

Not sure of tubing grade (there are lots of versions of Columbus) + not sure of Campy model = no idea on value.

On a local sale, value of complete higher end bikes is basically what the components are worth (you get the frameset for free), unless it is some super rare or super desirable frame. If the components are low end with a more desirable frame, then the value is basically what the frameset is worth (in that case the components are free).

Go to Velobase for ID on Campy parts. A lot of Campy parts did not have the model name on them, although I am kind of surprised, as on newer bits, Campy did put model names on a lot of their parts.

Are you prepared to part it out for your friend? That will get max return.

Assuming the frame is in excellent shape, I think you should ask for $1000.

Thanks for the input. Let me do some more investigating. I don't know much about older bikes so this is new to me. Thanks again!

So I found out the groupset and wheel hubs are campagnolo chorus.
