paintwork is in very good condition for a bike that was built in 1986 for the previous owner
pic shows it fitted with a brook b17 narrow saddle (that wont be included ) only has a cheap mens gel saddle and different stem on now so people can try it

bike is in northamptonshire and available for viewings

Always fancied a Vincitore myself - Mercian are only down the road and they are exceptional builders, and the Vincitore is the most aesthetic frame they make. One made to measure in 853 Professional would cost over a grand just for the frame.

This on is way too small for me though. LFGSS would be the place to go. It looks a little odd with the high bars - I'd split and sell the frame, you'd get a better price.
