Bike ID by crappy photos

Any guesses to what this could be? Worth the drive to the suburbs, plus trying to squeeze yet another project bike into my tiny, tiny apartment?

I see some Chorus parts, maybe, and...Superbe Pro? And Mavic wheels of some persuasion. All I have is 'Columbus Tubing' and 'Campagnolo'.

+1 Looks like a Superbe Pro RD. I bought a bike recently solely for that RD..... So I would be driving.

Hard to say what it is, I spy short semi-horizontal dropouts but also spy some rust. But if the price is right, not too much risk, I see $100 in parts + another $100 if the wheels are decent.

Suntour Sprint 9000 RD, index era. Campag Athena crankset, Chorus monoplaner brake calipers.

Definitely worth a look.

Kurt definitely has better eyes than me, for sure. +1 Go look and maybe score some nice parts as a minimum.

I spy Mavic Open 4 CD rims too. A good looking project - if the location is convenient, go ahead and see it as early as you can.

And another $70 or so for that saddle.
