Atala Campione d'Italia

I found this for sale locally. Sorry for the bad pics, but can anyone tell me it's value in the current condition? As you can see, there is surface rust on the fork and some of the other chrome bits, but I think it will clean up. Also, there are some scratches on the frame.

Thanks in advance!

Does the seller have any info on components? I see what looks like Campy Victory or Triomphe, but I can't tell from the pix.

The seller is clueless, not a bike guy at all. I'm not much better when it comes to Campy stuff.

I'm not as familiar with Atala frames, but if the group is Victory or Triomphe, that would put it about mid-80's, which seems consistent with 82-83 decals on the top tube.

I'm thinking a mid-level frame, with the pantographed A in the fork crown and head lug, but not chromed on the fork blades or stays. Tubing unknown, but I still think you could easily get $200-250 for it with a little work.

The Palmares decal says 1983, so it's no older than a 1984 model. The crankset apears be from the Campagnolo 'Touring' group. The rear derailleur appears to be a Campagnolo 990. Not sure about the front derailleur but it may be 980. The shift levers look like Gran Sport. The hubs appear to be Nuovo Tipo based on the skewer nuts. It looks like a bit of a frankenbike but it may have been spec'd like this as the components are from the same era and similar levels.

My overall impression is mid-1980s, very low mid-range around the crossover to entry level. Value will be dependent on the tubeset, which could be a lower Columbus set like Zeta, Aelle or Aelle R. Or it could be a something like Falck. The seat post diameter may give us a clue. Given the mystery tubeset and condition, I'd value this $150-$200.

Thank you guys. I believe there was a sticker saying Tullio Tubing. Sounds like a pass anyway. The guy was convinced it was worth $170 and wouldn't budge.

Tullio tubing was Rizzato's private label, lightweight, hi-tensile steel. It was roughly equivalent to Columbus Zeta. I'd say place it at $150 but $170 is not out of the ballpark for a rider.

I would agree should make very nice basic rider but not worth a tone only $150 or so considering condition. Based on the pics it will need a complete overhaul all four bearings, new consumables tires, cables bar tape, brake pads and likely new chain. So if there a no major surprises figure on spending a $100 in parts, if you do the work yourself, to get it in nice riding shape.

I had this same model, albeit with slightly different components, some years ago. I didn't find the ride particularly inspiring, but I had no trouble selling it (in a hot market) for around $250 as it was quite pretty.
