I pulled this off the Sheldon Brown site:

These were really fun bikes from Mexico. They made generous use of Campy parts, and the top-end frames were Cinelli knock-offs. When you see a Cinelli frame with holes-in-the-lugs, using a 27.2 seatpost, say "Windsor painted-like-Cinelli". There are more that just a few Windsors floating around out there with Cinelli decals. A Windsor is nice, but it isn't a Cinelli. Windsor frames tended to use fairly heavy tubing that made for a stiff but dead ride. Figure that an N.R. equipped Windsor in guideline condition should have a value of around $ 700. The Winsdor track bikes are very nice - in guideline condition they should be worth around $550.

Of course by "N.R." he means Campy Nuovo Record.

IMO his prices are a bit inflated. You have a nice bike with really nice components but I don't think you'll get the 7 bills. However, that at least gives you an idea.

I imagine most of you guys know about the Vintage Bike Priceguide but if you don't.
