Bear in mind that, in addition to the Valentino derailleurs, the one for sale on Seattle Craig's List has a relatively cheap cottered crankset, (what seem to be) steel rims and something akin to the recently mentioned Freccia d'Oro seat. In fact, I had one of these bikes - way back when - and the seat was an actual Freccia d'Oro (and damned uncomfortable).
Perhaps it's worth $300 as a period piece, as the frames do
look nice. They also make excellent fixed-gear conversions.
