Wes:

I wouldn't disparage the mid-80's Cinellis too much. Based on my experience, the post-golden year ones probably still have good riding characteristics. My opinion may be somewhat influenced by the fact that I only paid $100 for my C-Record equipped Super Corsa (sans wheelset, otherwise complete) with some cosmetic issues including a downtube dent from a brake caliper and some chipping of paint down to the chrome. For that much money it is a whole lot of bike!
