"Unfortunately there is a small (size of a pencil eraser) rust hole on the non-drive side chainstay on the bottom and from what I have heard, it is not fixable."

The frame was brought to a frame builder and it was repaired.

Any idea how nuch these bits are worth.

I spent some time on velo base identifying these bits.

An 1984? Campagnolo Trimpohe rear mech.
Image

A pair of wheels with old tubs, campagnolo record hubs in good condition, campag skewers and super competition champion rims. Tubs need replacing. Only front wheel picture but rear as good as the front.
Rear wheel has a 6 speed 13-18T freewheel
Image
Image

1984? Campag Nuovo record cranks. They have stamped on the drive side arm strada 177.5 and a 2 in a circle. Please tell me if I have identified them wrong.
Image

1984? Campag front mech nuovo record?
Image
Campag friction shifters.
Image

3TT stem and handlebar
Image

Everything in fine condition.

Also is this worth anything.
A Vitus 979 Shorter frame. The frame is uncracked but the paint is very flakely and lots of corrosion.

Mark would like to know >>>

Hi, I have been given a Raleigh Randonneur touring cycle with a 21" Reynolds 531 frame to rennovate. It belonged to my sister-in-laws father, Jack Wheeler of Kingston, Surrey, and I believe it is a quality item as all its components seem to be top quality.
After Jack's death the bike was stored in a damp shed so there is some rust on the plated areas and I think it needs completely stripping and restoring which I am struggling to find the time to do.
Therefore I am thinking of selling it as a project and was wondering how much I should ask for it?
I don't really want to break it for it's components and would prefer to sell it as a whole.
Also I believe Jack was a long time member of Kingston Wheelers CC and if there was someone on here from the Kingston Wheelers who may have access to an old cycle related picture of Jack Wheeler I would be very grateful to get a copy as I plan to use the money from the bike to buy his daughter one of those photo canvasses as a momento.
Thanks, Mark.

This is my brother's Fred Williams (Wolverhampton bike shop) bike from about 1977 or 78. He is thinking of putting it up for sale but we don't have any idea of what it might be worth. Anyone any ideas? (click on the images for a larger version)

Image Image Image Image Image

He tells me that everything apart from the tires and the saddle are original. He bought it to go to school on and it's been in his shed since he got a car - he's now 50.

He is thinking of selling it but neither of us are into retro bikes so we have no idea how much it might be worth.

It's a very light bike, he seems to remember it being one of the very early aluminium bikes.

Hi Mark

If it's any help, I've just purchased a late eighties Randonneur from ebay for just over a hundred quid, it's in need of a fair bit of attention, I've seen some go for over £200 but thats ebay and people can get carried away.

The Rando was Raleigh's top of the range touring bike, so still holds interest with tourers and retro riders alike.

post a few pics up if possible, it may help people give more of an idea but my humble opinion would be anything from £150 upwards depending on condition.

Hope this helps

Rich

Ive been asked to sell this on behalf of a friend and would like a rough idea of its worth before deciding between ebay or specialist classifieds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Frame is, I believe a Ciocc Designer '84 while the 'Designer' name is missing off the top tube I cant find anything else which comes close online. Chainset is Campag Gran Sport, campag BB, front mech and seatpost. Cinelli bars and record stem. Rear mech, brake levers and shifters are Shimano 600 including the pedals which arent fitted in the pic. Weinmann Carrera calipers. Weinmann rims laced to Shimano 600 hubs and stickered as being built by Martyn Ashfield, a local specialist. There is slight pitting and spots of rust to the chromed stays, Im guessing a lot of this would clean off, the rest of the bike is in a lovely condition with no signs of damage or repairs. If it was an inch smaller I would keep it for myself.

Not aluminium - apart from possibly the forks. Steel lugged frame which looks older than the dates you have mentioned. The rear gear is fitted completely wrongly - does it actually work? None of the components are particularly rare although the handlebars are a very good example of engraved GB which are quite desirable. At a jumble it would probably go for £75 - £100 at the very most but on the 'net - ??
