colnago or not?

this bike is listed in finnish auction page- not much to go on

advert says it is a colnago
shimano sis deraileurs-**********
it was clearly stolen at one time
kickstand!

I took the pic and adjusted the contrast.

OK I see campy brakes, it could have a colanago fork,
check out the seat tube area.

bid is 125....

what you think- should I take the chance?
Im thinking of taking it up to 200- but is it really a Colnago?

I doubt it is a Colnago. There are so many fake Colnagos out there that if there is even the slightest question of authenticity, then it is best to leave it. Same with Gios'.

The picture does not give enough detail to determine the answer. Clearly a repaint. If it is, it is newer than 84. Value for a repaint with no decals.... I would guess 3-400 US. The brakes are not original and the crank is in question. The post looks like Campagnolo NR, Cinelli stem as well as HB.
