@Spinmaster - Welcome to C&V. I don't have a clue for an answer. You may want to post over here to get better response

This is an entry level frame with a frankenbike mix of Shimano parts from the very late 1980s to early 1990s. The frame is plain gauge, carbon manganese, Columbus Aelle, but it is only used in the main tubes with the forks and stays being lesser grade material, probably hi-tensile steel. The derailleurs are early 1990s Shimano 105SC but the brakeset is very late 1980s Shimano 600 Ultegra and the pedals are early 1990s Shimano RX100. The hubs appear to be very late 1980s Shimano New 105. Condition is rough and value will depend on well it cleans up. As is, I'd want to pick it up for no more than $100. If it cleans up well, it might fetch about ~$200.

Thanks for the information guys. Does it mean that the bike isn’t original LOOK? It’s just an old vintage rb with LOOK stickers plastered on it?

It’s just some cellophane tape sticking on the frame which I do not know the purpose

A lot of the companies made tribute or replica bikes.

Is it a ‘real’ LOOK’? Probably yes. But it’s not a Team bike or an off the shelf version of what teams rode.

Value? See above.

i have never seen a Look like that but I suppose its possible. but made in italy sticker seems suspect. the hinault frames were made in france with 753 so its certainly not one of those!

It's not rock bottom, but it's nowhere near the top end. If the parts can all be cleaned up and made to function well, it should be a nice rider. $25-50 as-is. Parted out on eBay, it's got about $100 worth of parts on it.

Are the Look stickers under the clear coat? If not, it isn't a Look anything.


Regardless, it is a "modern" lugged Italian frame with decent parts. That will fetch a lot more than $50 anywhere.
