It's certainly a beautiful bike. I heard Roche talking at the Hay on Wye Book Festival where he was promoting his autobiography - I wrote about it on Cyclostyle http://cyclostyle.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/stylish-riders-stephen-roche/. He described how he'd got one of his old team bikes out of the loft when he "rediscovered" cycling and rode it to a mates on flat tyres to get them pumped up - it could've been one of the '87 Battaglins.

I have been riding this same frame (dura ace components) for about a month now, it is a great bike, and always gets the looks from the carbon fiber crowd

Hello, catching up here but was this bike running 7 speed friction shift or were they using the Synco at this time?

Good question. Syncro was on the market in '87 so the chances are Roche would have been using it from the previous season.

Hello - great job on this. I have a 1987 edition of this (without world champion decals, the year he won it all), fantastic structurally but the paint is quite messy - was wondering who did the respray on this if it all? Don't want to entrust it to just anyone.... I'm in London - any leads helpful! Cheers Chris

Hi. I have the 1987 with the world champion decals on it, and have been riding it since 1990 when I bought the bare frame and fork and built a racer around it. Mine has all Campy - head set, brakes, shifters, derailleurs, bottom bracket, seat post - and mostly C Record, because I got an incredible deal. Even though I have a Scott with an aluminum frame and fiber fork, I love my old Battaglin.

Hello, I have have the same model complete with all the decals etc... What value do you think it has as they are becoming rather rare??

My frame was very reasonable off EBAY (less that $400USD), value is based on how bad someone else wants it though. Personally I think the vintage steel market is skewed more to the more popular Italian brands (Colnago/De Rosa/Pinna) than the rarer frame builders. Now if you have it built with full campy and delta brakes...that might be a different story. Me Im gonna buck the trend and go 9 speed Dura Ace/Ultegra, down tube shifters, White Industry Hubs and H Plus Son box rims to round out the bling! I know blasphemy!
