I know this sounds like a marketing gimmick but I have genuinely had the toughest time deciding to sell this one. It is such a diamond in the rough, it's outrageous. It would take an afternoon in the shop to bring this one back to life and get it in perfect riding condition. Or, if you were that kind of person, flip it for a few hundred more.

Overall, the frame is in fantastic shape. The paint is beautiful under its layer of dust holding up well after all these decades. All but one of the decals are in gorgeous shape despite how poor decals were on Italian bikes in the 80s (here's lookin' at you, Pinarello!). The single decal blemish is located on the drive side downtube where it has one small rub on the "O" (see image). A steady hand and some touch up paint could do wonders.

As visible, the steel is Columbus. It is either SL or SLX although I have not removed the seatpost to see if I can feel for the rifling inside so it could be either. Both are excellent, as you likely know.

The cable guides, notorious for rust, have no indication of any funny business and look beautiful. And although the chrome fork has a layer of light haze on it, your favorite polish/paste should cut through it nicely. The only area to note is the drive side chainstay. There is light surface rust but some oxalic or phosphoric acid, or heck, even the aluminum foil with diet Coke trick would likely take it off.

The components are all top tier, mostly Campagnolo, as one would expect buying a bicycle of this pedigree. I'm nearly certain this is exactly as the entire bike came from the shop. No parts swaps. All components are also still in very good condition. Aside from cleaning and replacing the Modolo hoods, they are all ready to get back onto the asphalt. The Mavic G40's are pristine and have oodles of good sidewall left. The Concor America does have two small marks on it but I wouldn't consider it too far gone for many more miles of use.

The sizing measures out at 53cm (C-T) at the seat post and a 53cm (C-C) at the top tube. Nice and square.

Price: $ SOLD $
Cash, PayPal (F&F or 3% additional), or Venmo accepted.
I am located in Corvallis, Oregon and am hopeful for a local sale. I will also be in Portland in the coming weeks so delivery to close-in PDX is possibility.
If you are interested in shipping, I am open to this but would only do so by dropping the bike off at a trusted local shop and having you coordinate with them on boxing and shipping. I understand this adds to the cost but I have simply backed away from boxing bikes up myself any longer due to liabilities and previous bad experiences. If you are willing to front the cost of boxing the bike, I am open to shipping.

That is an astoundingly good deal. If it were my size I would probably have had to put a moratorium on my moratorium of not buying anything for awhile...sigh

Wow, that is going to make someone very happy. I had a beat up one that was really too large for me but totally enjoyed if for a couple of years before moving it one. I'm sad and glad that this is too small or I'd be making a drive this weekend. GLWS!

As evil as this is, I am getting some level of satisfaction knowing that I'm causing some internal "rationalizing" and stressful playing out of scenarios for other BF members. I mean, I'm stuck in this boat all the time as well. It's just a little refreshing to finally be on the other side!
So long as I don't cause catastrophic marital problems, I'd say it's all healthy stress and forcing others to bat around their current, and future, bike stable status.

I feel fortunate for:
A. That it is not a Mockba...which is one of my few grail bikes.
B. That it is too small anyhow (I need a 56/7)
C. That if A/B were not true, I was too far anyhow.

That's a beauty and an excellent price! Only thing I would do (if my size) is replace those Equipe calipers with better Modolos...luckily it's not my size and I already own two Cioccs!
GLWS!

Same - also my size. Wife asked me yesterday "how many more bikes do you plan to buy?". I'm on my 3rd vintage bike this year.

Beautiful bike. GLWS!

This one is still up for grabs.

However, I did adjust details above to accept more payment types. Sometimes I forget to add PayPal just because it's essentially how most pay anyway. It's darn near assumed.

Thanks for looking!

It's exactly my size, and on the short list of bikes I'm looking to get someday but fortunately (for me) far enough away to make it impractical. Really, really nice though. GLWS.

The fact that this bike is still available tells me the sweet spot for vintage bikes has moved into the 1990s.
