As per title, preferably campagnolo groupset and columbus steel, but open to offers. Budget up to 500-600 but open to interesting offers. Size 56 cm to 58 cm.
Edited. I am thinking of something more solid and reserved, late 80s - 90s. I dont mind if the groupset is not completely consistent and couple of parts are out of the groupset. I could fix n change them along the way.
Sizing would be helpful
pardon me - 56/58
My Scapin is 57cm, Columbus Genius with Campagnolo throughout, but I think £500-600 is pushing it. I paid that for mine in 2013 and since then I've replaced quite a few parts, plus they've only become rarer. I've seen a few on Ebay (admittedly far overpriced) for a lot more, so I think it'd be helpful if you gave an indication of the type of bike you are after. Loud and lairy or reserved? Classic as in 80's, 90's, 00's? I think a classic Italian bike with a decent groupset, in the current climate, is going to be a push at £500.
@MrMister hey thanks for input! I see that the search of italian bike is a bit demanding atm.

Where are you located? I'm actually in Italy so can keep an eye out for you, if you like. There are occasionally very good quality bikes for sale, for within your budget. The only issue is, you can't see them in person.
I am located in Lithuania, but if you did notice something, that would be amazing. My budget can stretch, depending on the deal of course :)
And I bought couple of bikes without touching them, it should be no problem.
Possibly a bit small,but very nice.
@mig that's lush, but way just a bit too small :/
Have found Colnago International 1986, full on ofmega premier groupset within the budget.
Up to confirm and seal the deal in the end of the week
