Immediately apologizing for the mistakes in the text, I do not know English perfectly.

Hello everybody. I got to see this frame here. I can not find information about it, nor do I know its approximate value. The only information found on this site, as well as several similar photos in the Instagram.
https://fascinationferraroli.wordpress. ... explained/

Maybe someone will help me determine the value of this frame?
Also interested in any information about this frame.

Hello everyone from Ukraine)

Just recently I was able to find some Ferraroli on this forum. However, this does not change the amount of information exactly about this frame, because it did not find such a color :(

Your Ferraroli shows the characteristics of their Prêt à Rouler (stock sizing, brazed in Japan, painted and assembled in Switzerland) frames from the early 1990s, which were used to build the Dolomites, Nevada and Etna bike models. Here are excepts from their 1992 catalog.

Etna.jpg [ 284.85 KiB | Viewed 191 times ]

I briefly owned the following example of one with the same paint scheme as yours. As I remember, the serial number indicated it was from 1990. Since it was too small for me, I traded it to a friend, who rebuilt it with Deore DX components, similar to the Nevada specification.

In terms of value, I paid around USD 100 for the complete bike shown above, but that was in Italian-speaking Ticino, where prices are lower than the French and German speaking cantons. There has been a 1991 Dolomites in very nice condition, painted in the catalog color shown above, for sale in Swiss on-line classifieds for weeks with no takers at around USD 550.

Hope this helps. Enjoy!

I would say the same thing than Thekidmalone.
I'ts a "Prêt à rouler" made in Japan and not built in La Chaud de Fond in Switzerland.
I would say Pre 1992 for the lugged Tange fork which disappeared in the 92 catalog.
