I'm getting getting quite a few emails about this bike so I thought I'd better correct something: Rear derailleur is Mirage, not Chorus. Apologies.

Can email pics if you need them.


Any vintage collectors out there?

I have a beautiful, pearl white, circa 1990 Bottecchia bicycle for sale. Lugged frameset is built with Columbus SL (52/53) with a chrome SL fork. Full Campagnolo Chorus Ergopower 8-speed / Racing-T equipped. Includes Campy Chorus 32H hubs laced to Campy Omega clincher rims, Cinelli bar and stem, and Italian-threaded bottom bracket -- just as God intended.

Frame has a few paint chips here and there - primarily on driveside chain stay - but otherwise is in pristine condition. I doubt this machine has 1,000 miles on it.

No pedals, no saddle. Might consider parting out but would prefer to keep her assembled. @ $500
