Photo link:

doesn't say the model name on it and I cant find an image match on google. Any help would be much appreciated!

Also, it's part of this bike:

If you have thoughts on the overall bike value that would be helpful as well. Thanks!

The derailleur Looks like a 990, lower end stuff for Campagnolo. I can't say for certain, but it seems like a lot money considering condition and level of components.

Tullio Tubing = Hi-ten. I dunno if I'd pay that much for a hi-ten bike with low end Campagnolo parts...

While technically Campy eguipped and Italian both the bike and parts are basically low end while nice looking this is just another slightly nicer hight-ten level bike worth maybe half the asking price. as for tjhe RD Looks like a mid 80's Victory basically Campy's cheapest at the time.

IIRC, The Campy lineup from the mid-80s went down from C-Record to CdA to Victory to Triomphe and then the lower lines 990 and 980. I've seen 980 and it was pretty basic stuff. This derailleur is either a 990 or 980.

In any case, a Shimano Light Action derailleur from the same era ($5 from the used & vintage bin at your local bike Co-op) will shift worlds better than any of the Campy stuff from that era. This includes C-Record, despite the fact that C-Record likely cost 10 x as much. Frankly, index shifting has not improved since Shimano sorted out the derailleurs by 1986 and the STI shifters by 1991.

By 1992, Campagnolo's Ergopower shifters did one better on on the shifting performance and ergonomics. Mechanical shifting hasn't improved since, the only interim development being a useless proliferation of extra rear cogs.

I agree it certainly looks like a 980 or 990 Gear rear derailleur. I also think $425 is way too much.
