there's no way that it was £260 for the anniversary groupset - we used to sell a pair of nuovo record cranks for £80 back then!!

either that or my boss was making a ridiculous mark up on his stuff!

hmm..

:roll:



Well perhaps your latter comment was correct :D

Someone emailed me this over the weekend; from the book "La bici d'epoca" I have not got around to translating this yet.

It basically says that it was put up for sale in a limited series (15,000 gruppi in total which were sold in three lots of 5,000 each) at a price of 600,000 LIT (Equivalnet to about £280 in 1983)

I'm still on the lookout for a 32h rear hub if anyone sees one.

Update: 10/3/2016

I have now acquired an original decal that was supplied with the set.

I also met an old Belgium woman at a bike jumble in the Netherlands who was selling all sorts as the family was closing down the shop. She had all sorts of decals for sale; including the middle one below.

I have never seen this before; she had 3, I bought them all. I have used one on my Montello build ... the other two are not for sale.

Update 29/04/16

Having put this page together I get a number of random incoming emails about the 50th stuff.

The latest one was from a guy who did some rather nice drawings from BITD.

The drawings were done by Roger Watt http://watt-art.com/ and have been reproduced below with his permission.

This is what he said about his "model" ...

Back in 1984, I had a bike built for me by Paulo Garbini at the Soho Cycle Shop in London's Soho which incorporated the 50th Anniversary Groupset. The metallic crimson Columbus frame carried Paulo's own decals and the forks were stamped with "PG".

Seems prices have now gone officially nuts on 50th stuff.

I used to pick up items at reasonable prices on auctions.

I have recently seen a NOS group sold for £4600 and a used one for £2400.

How I wish I had brought a couple when I first started collecting 50th parts.

I have even seen the empty packaging case sell for over £300.

I have it in my head that the 50th groupsets cost around £1200 at the time. A nice Raleigh 753 would have cost £425 with a Super Record groups, bar, stems, rims etc taking it up to about £1100 or so. I think we only ever sold one 50th group on a Colnago and it was about £2000 which was exorbitant back then and a real one-off.

They were £499, there is a scan of an ad on my webpage.
