Haven't heard of Kristall until this post, sounds like a brand of champagne. The shimano arabesque groupset can fetch a decent amount though.

The bike had a set of 700c wheels and modern brakes I'm not sure if it's an old frame or not can anyone shed any light ?







The bike also has the newer style shifters built into the brake the side push ones. And the newer cranks, rear mech and front mech. The frame looks like an old lugged one.

If that's the case then most of these bikes are too small for you, and the Provini might be the one to go look at. Decent frame, although not high-end, with some nice details. I looks very Italian, and even better, it looks like it has been well looked after. Parts are not high-end either, but they will work OK and keep you on the road until you can afford some upgrades if you think you need them.

I'm no Campagnolo expert, but the RD is a Valentino, and that's about as low-end as it gets. The FD looks a little more upmarket. The QR's are Atom, which means the hubs are probably Atom or Maillard.
