There is one shot showing a little of the top and down tube and I don't see any obvious damage. I would buy it if it were near to me; the parts alone should cover the cost. If there is frame/fork damage, it would be worth repairing for an early Colnago IMO.

Stan, the seller, writes me moments ago: "As I've told other prospective buyers, highest bidder. 4 interested including you." (Person looking at it tomorrow morning has set the starting bid as $300, apparently.)

Make that 3 interested. I'm out. If I wanted to bid at an auction, I'd go to an auction site. Stan will let people see it over the weekend, then entertain offers. His number is 804-837-2019, if you deign to play.

(Looks to be maybe a '70 or '71? Maybe a 60 cm? (My size. <sad faced emoji>) I've written the seller but have received no response. Perhaps someone more proximate may be successful in effecting a rescue, if it is indeed salvageable? (Or enable for me? <happy faced emoji>(Facilitate, that's what I meant.) (Misaligned frame? Been there many a time, done that.))

Regarding Stan and his Colnago, one of the pictures shows the paint is gone on the back of the bottom headlug. Hopefully prospective buyers are getting a better look.

I was one of the 4. Told him to contact me if all others pass at 300. I do hope it goes to a member who can make good with it. I was also not thrilled with a 4 hour round trip, with a risk of finding it too small or too damaged. He said it is out of alignment but not dented or cracked.

Too bad he decided to make it an auction. So it goes. I saw the photo with what looks like paint missing from the lower headlug. Could be duct tape the way the rest of the bike looks. It’s had a hard life. Without any better photos, or knowledge of frame damage, it’s worth about what he’s asking. Note rear wheel doesn’t appear to have a Campagnolo hub.
The ‘73 I recently picked up has a straight frame, mostly original components, and I paid a little more than double this guy’s asking, less shipping from CA. And I think I got a bargain. If I hadn’t made the purchase, I’d be interested, but cautious. So there’s a data point for you. For whatever that’s worth.

I have that seat! I bought it probably around 10 years ago because it was cheap. It's fine, but certainly not OEM or "from it's era". The bike certainly looks nice, and possibly my size, but it's too expensive for me.

Stan emailed me the bike is a 61 cm, though ctc or ctt was not specified, and that it is still available.

I have requested additional photographs focusing on the "alignment" and damage, rather than the components.

Hopefully, one way or another, we shall see?

(Oh, wait, it appears he already sent me additional photos. Didn't see them with the email on the mobile device. Looks pretty good actually? Damn myself, I am beguiled. I'll see if he'll take the 3, and perhaps has given off the impromptu auction?)

Wouldn't be surprised if this had already been posted, but I am surprised it's still around. If you could swing local pickup, $749 BIN/OBO seems a fair deal for one of you a couple inches taller than me. I would hope they're supplying something to secure and cap that crank off though, eh?

The totally wrong blacked-out wheels probably aren't helping. A concession to rideability, perhaps, but probably just a wheelset the owner had sitting around.

Love that root beer color though!

And for the lucky buyer: if you don't know about these rear derailleurs, they shift as well as any old Campy derailleur (which is to say, OK but not that great) and will work with both a wider spread and larger rear cog than their racing derailleurs. But they are relatively fragile. This early type Rally tends to break where the upper knuckle necks down. Later models had material added there, which helped but didn't completely solve the problem. So shift with care, and try not to pre-shift the lever, which puts a torsional load on that skinny segment.
