I'm in town for a week. I might just have to go check this out. (I guess this means the vintage bike market is starting to bottom out).

Just make sure every one's a keeper.

Wheels look to be replacements (they should be Ambrosio) but other than that it looks all stock. This was the first bike that really spoke to me.

IIRC, mine (first one was a 58 and second was a 60) was more like 23.7 or something thereabouts, but I have slept since, so I could be confusing it for something else.

While it is still a good price, this is only a mid-range model. The tubing is carbon-manganese Aelle R and components like the brakeset, crankset, headset and pedals are from 2nd tier Italian companies. While the hubs are Campagnolo, they are only mid-range Tipo and that front derailleur is a Nuovo Valentino. The claimed 21.7 lb is for the smallest (47cm) frame size. This one is likely around 22.5 lbs. Granted, the pantographing adds a lot of bling but this was only a $589 MSRP in 1985.
