Those C-Record cranks don't seem to have any shoe-rub on them. Clean them up and you'd make your money back just on the cranks. Bargain.

Tri-bars and panniers? The mind boggles.

I was thinking of parting it out. I would get more for it that way. No hubs, but this is a nice group none the less.
Brake levers
Delta brakes
crankset
BB
Headset
downtube shifters
front braze-on derailleur
rear derailleur.

Any ideas as to what the frame/fork might be worth on their own?

Thanks,
Ian

I think I would like to sell it as a group instead of separately. PM me with all offers.

Anyway, i started to strip and clean the bike today. I got the rear wheel and rear derailleur done.

The Hope hub has sealed bearings and everything was tight and grinding, but smooth, no bumps in the bearings. I took off the seals to clean the bearings with brake clean and blow them out with air. I then took grease and pressed it in with my finger to both sides of the hub. It spins beautifully now.

It is possible to clean and re-grease sealed bearings.

The freewheel only needed a couple of shots of lubricant.

The rear derailleur was cleaned and the pulley bearings were re-greased. The derailleur looks very nice now.

I can't get off the BB as I don't have a Campy BB removal tool. I'll bring it ti the LBS and ask them to do it. I thought it would have loose bearings, but it's a sealed unit.

Hi Guys, I've just bought this Colnago Tacnos and I was wondering how much it actually worth. The condition of the paintjob is not fantastic (see last pics) and the parts are not high end but that are the only downsides. Here's some pictrues:
