Would you buy the Fidusa ??

My greetings to the group!
Having just finished my latest build (https://www.lfgss.com/thread104894-2.html) I am left with an extra Campy Athena group as described below:
NOS Athena hubs on NOS 192h rims



Athena Group as per below pics, upgraded for 8 speed ergos + 3ttt stem and bars



I bought the group because I was indecisive whether to build the frame into a fixie conversion or a road bike. Having completed the build as a fixie I am really happy with it, hence the group is surplus.

By adding frame and tyres I will be able to build a new road bike. I found this frame on you evilbay which I quite fancy:



https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3905634802...ht_7450wt_1399



This is a Fidusa Columbus SLX/ Cinelli lugs frame. I fancy this frame because of:
- Colour scheme
- It is made by I Greek craftsman (and I am Greek Cypriot )
- Obviously it is my size
- It is fairly priced @ Ä270 delivered (£220)

I donít like the fact that:
- F&F is 3kg!!!
- Dropouts are not chromed (also there is no brand on them/ seller doesnít know either)

An alternative would be to sell the group and move on!
What would you guys do?? Would you buy the Fidusa??
