Medici Pro Strada frame and fork, 52 cm

Medici Pro-Strada frame and fork, mid 1980's. Has some cracks in the paint on the top of the top tube, and a ripple at the bottom of the top tube. Small deformity is detectable on the down tube, a minor change in the gloss of the paint that probably would not be seen unless you are looking for it. I could not detect any effects on the fork. It's a shame, but this is one of those cases where it is what it is. Additional details for those still interested:

Columbus tubing, most certainly would be SL. 52 cm ctt seat tube, 53 cm ctc top tube. 126mm rear end. Campagnolo dropouts. The bb has since been removed. Recessed brakes front and rear, braze on front derailleur, two bottle mounts, internal brake housing on top tube. Italian threads. The paint has small imperfections, one small ding on top tube. The chrome is pretty good, has some small imperfections. The chainstays look like they are clear coated, and some of the clear is chipping off. The chrome plating shows some rust and pitting deep in the seat lug between the seat stays, and on the bottom of the fork crown between the fork blades. These are difficult areas to plate, so I think the chrome was not as good there.

Other than the obvious, a handsome frame. Without the damage, I would have initially listed at $195. Considering the facts, listing it for half of that. $95.00 after fees, plus shipping. Let the comments begin.

I'm on the market for a Medici and this is an acceptable daily rider. If it were a few sizes taller id be all over it.

I have a couple of Medici. 49, 51, 56. The 56 is too big for me. I bought it because the seller told me itís 54.
Anyway, PM me if you are interested in the 56 frame and fork. Iím in Orange County.

Amongst the 105 and Ultegra, there were some C record parts.

The damage identified would indicate that it had a front impact of sorts. Might still be quite serviceable, but should be noted.

Just seeing your post where you said you have a 56 Medici. Can you tell me more about it as I may be interested as well. Thanks, Drew

$95+ is more than fair, quick yank on the front end by someone who knows what they are doing or as is, no brainer.

Way too small for me and I have half a dozen similar slightly sad examples waiting for me to figure it out.

Yes, the blue and white is a beautiful frame thank you Uyle. Will be building it up with campy for Eroica in April so if anyone has a real nice gruppo I would be interested.
