What is worth: 1982 Colnago Superissimo

I have been out of the C&V for awhile and have lost track of the market. What's an appx value of a 1982 Colnago Superissimo, 62cm with original paint in 7/10 condition. Camp record hubs on mavic hoops, and C-Record gruppo in fantastic condition. No pics, camera broken

The very best advice anyone could ever give you on this topic is to borrow a camera.

Potentially really nice bike. Is there front end damage though? Those are suspicious paint blemishes on the top and down tubes in the pic.

Barring any damage, I see prices (not necessarily transactions) for 80s Colnagos ranging from $700 as is to $1,500 all cleaned and tuned.

^^^^^^ Beat me to it.

I have to ask, has that thing been in a front end collision? TT looking a little funky behind the head tube lug. It couild be the bottom of the lug, but might be bent. Paint issues in that area and the same area on the DT. Need some close up pics of those 2 areas.

Thankfully no front-end damage, PO put red electrical tape over scratches and it's peeling up. I'm going to clean it up real nicely and put it up for sale soon. Thanks for the feedback everyone

LOVE these Colnagos !!!!

As it sits, I would say $800.00

All depends where you live, and if you are willing to ship it

As everyone knows, the TALL frame eliminates about 90% of the population.

A beautiful bike!!!

Wish it was a 54/56

No Record that I can see anywhere.

Chorus cranks and deraileurs, Veloce brakes, shifters and brake levers don't look the right color for Record either.

Good to know. I'll try to deconstruct it and get more photos. Campagnolo nuances have always escaped me, so I go based on what others tell me
