Does the logo say "F. Moser" or "Francesco Moser" ? Francesco Moser models are older and IMO have a better chance of being a good quality bike. There are very nice F. Moser models but also some mid range quality ones as well. But as with most used bikes, condition and components are important in determining value.

What website? And what city? I donít Moser was ever super popular here in the states, but they did make some great bikes. I believe they used to use things like Gilco type tubing made from Alle or ChroMor to keep cost down but still give you a fancy looking bike

Here’s a pic of mine at Eroica California. Frame is from 1984 or 1985. If you look closely at the seat tube above the Moser logo, you will see a Columbus (SL) sticker. That’s what the better Moser frames from this era were built from ( their catalog has one from Columbus Air tubing which I’ve never seen, other than a Tommasini fork). The lower level frames were Columbus Tre Tubi and Columbus Aelle. You can google what those stickers look like. Regardless, based on the info £100 is probably OK, maybe a good or great price.

Yes! I think Moser had some of the best looking paint jobs and color combos out there.
