Oooof! That dent looks rather large and will probably put a lot of people off buying it, albeit unlikely to ever be a problem.

As it is with the dent I'd put it at £200 - £250 (although cannondales are not an area of expertise for me). He sure to turn the bars back down when you take pictures to sell it.

I would've said about £150. It's a nice bike, but most of the value is in the frame, and that dent is very off-putting, even if it's not a structural problem. The SunTour parts are good quality, but consumables are getting harder to find, and that has to be taken into account for a high-mileage bike.

Claud Butler track. Oh wow! Very difficult to value. The current interest in track and retro/ classic puts this at a prime time to sell. Unsure of value, think you'd be best to auction or start it at £1000 on a forum and see what people offer. In reality I'd expect to achieve circa £700'ish.

Lovely, lovely bike....

In my quest for the perfect saddle, I've just bought a Turbo which comes with a "27.2mm Campagnolo seat pillar" attached.

I've yet to see it in the flesh, but Velobase suggests it is a Campagnolo 4051/1, Nuovo Super Record (unpolished top).

This pre-dates my area of interest, so I will be looking to move it on: something like £30?

Many thanks.

£30 should see you a quick sale. Depending on condition £50 would not be unreasonable.
