Campy Record Value?(4 posts)

Campy Record Value?Randy P.
Aug 2, 2001 4:55 PM
I located a couple old race bikes. Both are to small for me. #1 is a Raheigh 86' (?) with Campy Record brakes/derailures/bb ect. #2 is an Ellis Briggs (british)with full Campy Record group. Both low miles. Question - Are either or both worth $100.00? Is this just old useless junk or a good start for building a kick ass road racer? I'm new at this. Help me out! Time is critical.
I don't know whether either are worth building up to abill

road racer -- lots of money and technology have gone into making stuff ten years old pretty obsolete. But, you know, $100 is a pretty cheap giggle. If it rides and you want it, get it (the Ellis Briggs sounds interesting). Get both.
Others here may know more.

You didn't mention the models of the two bikes, the tubing or their overall condition. Depending upon the above, the answer is "yes" they can easily be worth somewhat more than $100. Go to Sheldon Brown's website and find the section where he gives estimated values to classic frames, then go to the Cycle de Oro website's Classic Rendezvous and look up Ellis Briggs. Raleigh has a link there that mentions models. If I saw a Raleigh International of the right year, in good shape with Campy and the price was $100, it would be gone before the seller knew what happened to it. And added to my fleet.
Buy 'em quick ...bianchi boy

Even if you don't want the bikes, you could easily sell the Campy groups on eBay for more than you paid for the bikes. Old Campy gear, particularly Record, is very collectible. If you don't believe me, do a search on eBay for Campagnolo and then follow the auctions for Campy groups. You'll be surprised what this stuff goes for.

BTW, I am selling a used Campy Nuovo Record mini-group (front and rear derailleurs, shifters) and the price is up to $46 after only two days. Record stuff is worth even more.
