Complete bike:
Beautiful and very rare handcrafted Italian beauty out of a time when Italian bikes still really where made in Italy ;-). Frame is made out of the unique and rare Columbus Max tubing (full set + fork).

Bike has not done a lot of miles/KM’s (<5000KM) and have not been used in wet or cold conditions. A few years ago I changed from classic Record 8-speed to the more comfortable 10-speed ergoshifters. Since about 15 years this is my 2nd roadbike and only been on the road for one or two times a year (max).

I am not 100% sure about the year of build. I think it is 1993 or 1994. Colors are bright metallic green (front top) and very dark green (rear and down). Pictures will follow on short term.

Paintwork was custom and is in very good condition. Some very small spots of the dark green have been repainted. Size is 59cm/60cm (will measure asap)

Somec ProMax fork - full Columbus Max tubing

Campagnolo Centaur Carbon 10-speed shifters

Campagnolo cassette 10-speed + extra new unused chain and cassette (both 10 speed)
Syncros polished alloy stem (1”; 120(?)mm and extra identical stem (130(?)mm
Steer ?
Syncros Propost seatpost
Campagnolo Zonda wheels
Selle Italia Flite classic seat (with signs of wear)
Speedplay classic pedals

Price (asking) is € 2500 but open for fair offers.

Shipping within Europe is no problem (on buyers cost). For reviews on my shipping see the topic in the mtb-section.

so want this (well would want the frame), but musn't, hoping it's 60cm so it's not my size.
