Anyone here know Italian bicycles? What's an old Doniselli 10 speed worth?

Bike is in fair condition - it has quit a few little rust spots on it. Campagnolo components seem to be in good shape. Would need tires & tubes, then should be rideable.

I would suggest checking bike clubs in Phoenix and maybe a shop that deals in old stuff. I recently sold my 1983 Vitus frames road racer and it had Campy Super Record bits on it for $600 and threw in a bunch of other stuff such as a set of road racing wheels from the old 7-11 team. I put my Motobecane tandem up for sale and was originally too high and after talking to some shop guys dropped the price about 40%. So as I said, I'd ask some shops.

I guess it wasn't worth very much as the My Ride guy threw it out again where Leeh H found it!

Don't care what it's worth - that looks fun as hell to ride. I love steel bikes. Particularly steel ITALIAN bikes.

Is it paranoia if everyone really IS out to get me?

His is in much nicer shape than mine. Sounds like he did rescue his from the dumpster.

I would guess not much. I never heard of a Doniselli, and would estimate that bike back when it was new was about $300-350, est. circa 1974. It has clincher tires, doesn't look like it has a Reynolds or Columbus decal anywhere, and from the pics, don't really see any Campy components anywhere except possibly pedals, and calipers.

Front deraileur, hubs, shifters are Campy. Rear has been replaced with Shimano.

TTT stem and possibly, handlebar and 80s Sella Italia saddle. The rest of the components appear to be pretty low grade unfortunately. Looks like a steel seatpost and saddle clamp, very inexpensive Dia Compe style brake levers, crank looks to be cast Japanese or French. Bike rack $13 back in the day. Looks also to be 56-58 cm with touring geometry, so the typical rider should be about 5-10 to 6-0. Stem looks like it was replaced as it's too short for what a frame size like this would come with. My guess the previous rider was too short for the bike.

I took a totally original and pristine Italian bike to the shop and asked the same question. I wanted to know if I changed things is it would hurt the value. "What value?," is all I got.
I yanked all the finger tip controls and drop bars and tossed it all in favor of a more comfortable and practical bike with straight bars and thumb controls.
