Desirable bike that's been stored poorly. $150 as it sits, and I feel that's generous. It needs EVERYTHING,the paint might clean up and touch up okay, but the chrome is trash.

They're NOT Shimano of any flavor. Certainly Campagnolo, likely 8 speed. You'd need to pull the collar out of the right shifter to see if it's a 2 spring or 3 spring mechanism. The 3 spring can go 8,...

I think it's complete. There's no pocket cast into it for that awful Victory style plastic multi tooth b stop. I'd guess this is more along the Triomphe line that used a cast in b stop.

Brake levers do not appear to be Campagnolo, the brake pad holders are missing, and the FD isn't Nuovo Record. Seems a tad bit over priced.
If I could get a $1000 for mine, it would be GONE.

Beautiful cranksets. I have one on my '83 Trek 720, along with the matching BB. I don't ride it as often as I should, but I've never had an issue with it. Same bike also has the Avocet seatpost.
