Chris,

Although your OH Falcon is in great condition, that doesn't affect the price greatly: £50-£65. The brake lever extensions and unidentified tubing mark it out as low-end; I'd guess the gearing is something like Suntour or Sachs.

Although Elswick and Falcon can trace their origins to the late 19th Century, neither carries much clout today (Elswick bought Falcon in the mid-Seventies and when it was restructured in the mid-Eighties only then produced bikes under the Falcon brand).

The SS/FXD riders are more discerning than they are given credit for and want proper track bikes (with track ends not dropouts) or quality steel (531, SLX etc) road bikes from names with a frame building pedigree.

The mudguard and rack do make it practical and versatile, so now is the best time to sell it.

To back-up what I've written: last year's Winter bike was an immaculate 1989 Peugeot in "gas pipe" for £60 and this year's is a tired 1985 Raleigh in 531 for £55.

nah b*****s, it's luvverly!!
Frame + respray got to be 150
wheels 80
tyres and tubes 40 at least
campy cranks S/H 40

mechs and shifters 30 - 50
nice bars and stem 30
tape 10
cables 15
nice saddle 20
headset 15
bottom bracket 20
brakes etc etc..50

I thinks you done good... :lol:


Agreed, if you split it you may get your money back but if I was honest you did poay a bit much for it as a complete bike. I don't know much about the frame but if it is Raleigh then it would really need to be a top end Reynolds frame to warrant the Record wheels. I hate to say it but the bike does look like the shop's attempts at getting rid of all the bits and pieces he had hanging around.

If it were me I'd split it up and eBay the bits. A good auction with nice pics could net you the follwing...

- Wheels (if CR then they should have the black grease cover clip around their centres) if so then a clean pair with Mavic rims can be worth 100 pounds
- Levers, you seem to have the C-era Record/Chorus units with the sought after cream hoods, if the hoods are clean then these are worth 50
- Cenelli stems are always good for 20-30
- C-Record era Record/Chorus/Athena D/tube shifters - 25
- C-Record era s/post - 30 (40 if it has the Campy shield)
- C/set looks low end but if Campy then good for 20 quid
- Frame, if Reynolds (not too sure how you can tell) then 75

The rest will struggle to sell but if pushed you could get your 350 back.

Sorry, just spotted this sticky ...

Hi,

New here ... just got my hands on a Pinerello Montello.

It's a bit tatty but all looks OK; a few pictures here:

All the components are campag and have a C50 mark so I assume they are 50th anniversary edition.

Questions; are these components Super Record?

Also... any idea what the bike is worth?

That frame is refinished?

Components are Campagnolo 50th anniversary indeed, no Super Record. Quite valuable stuff. In case you go for profit maximalisation I think it is best to split.

What would the value of the groupset and frame be if split, not that I want to.

Not sure what the score is with the frame, some decals remain that look original.

^ "Any advise would be great thanks"

This is an excerpt from the FAQ "Can I post Images?":
"Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML (if allowed)."
