Interested in selling this Fausto Coppi frame and components but seek to learn its value first. I'm the original owner, purchased in NYC 2003 although I think the frame is circa 1996. Component choice is admittedly somewhat fashion-forward, and selected with appearance value in mind. I think the bike is stunning, and ride it to this day with pride. I was told by the dealer it was supposed to be a show bike. In fact, I have yet to see another Coppi with this paint scheme, which does seem more elaborate than the norm. Further, I can't find another Columbus Genius with the same BB (partially lugged). Thanks in advance for opinions and estimates.

I sold a similar looking frame and fork in Columbus EL in great condition for around £250. I believe the frames were cheap because the design of the rear triangle joining the seat tube lower down was banned for racing and there was a lot of remaining stock.

Although I'm unfamiliar with Columbus EL, or how it compares with Columbus Genius, it's mainly the paint job that I believe makes my frame unique. As mentioned, I have yet to see another Coppi with this paint job. I'm going to contact Zar to see if it's a one-off. Thanks for your reply. Best, Vic

Yes the paintwork probably is unique. The frames emerged unpainted from storage as I understand it...
