    Campagnolo, L.Bobet and Sekine bikes

    I have 3 bikes that I wish someone could help me with an apprisal.
    1. Campagnolo BLUE bike, OLD maybe 1950's to 1970's, Very good looking bike, ten speed.
    2. L.Bobet; YELLOW BIKE, I think it is SIETIENNE a little hard to read, # 63055 stamped. Has 3 sprockets at pettles and 5 on back wheel. 1950's to 1970's???
    3. Sekine WHITE BIKE, made in Canada #9-00998 ten speed, Have been told 1970's nice bike.
    All above bikes are OLD, but all parts are there and could ride any of them today, just air up the tires and or maybe a new tire or 2. Brooks Leather seats are a little small for my ----- now.

    Thanks for your help and Merry Christmas- Happy New Year

    1. Campagnolo did not make bikes, just the components, but I can't tell from your pics what the maker might be. Appears to be a NRecord group, which is a good thing. Its condition's not a good thing. As it sits, without a known frame builder, presented correctly - maybe you get $150 - $200.

    2. Bobet - the "unreadable" is the city where the bike was made/assembled. St. Etienne, France. Also a nice, but mixed, group. As in bike#1, not really enough info to go on, and condition suffers. It has an integrated rear der hanger, so it's not an entry level frame. As it sits, though, another $150-$200 bike, presented nicely, with wheels, to the right buyer.

    3. Sekine - lower level bike. In that condition, I might go $50.

    Just my opinion.

    Not POSITIVE about the Sekine being low level, that's the double butted champion tubing sticker no? I'd guess mid range. Still not great condition , around here it would go for over 100 , probably closer to 2. Sekine's get a lot of love here though.

    Can't be of help with the other bikes, better/more pictures would help. Close ups and the like.

    +1, the Sekine is a mid-1970s, mid-range model SHS, with a CrMo double butted frame. Definitely worth at least $100, closer to $150 cleaned up, with new bar tape and cable clips. The missing first character in the serial number is a letter and I'd appreciate if the OP could try to identify it.

    Agreed. Condition on the blue one is pretty rough. Plenty of rust really hurts the value. Most of the money is in the components.

    The yellow bike really catches my eye for some reason. Maybe it's the crankset. I'd probably pay $200 for it.

    White Sekine would probably bring at least $100 here, even in such poor shape. OP: where are you located?
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    Condition is everything, I would not consider those bikes to be rideable. They all need quite a bit of work, so they would sell as "projects" right now. So it really depends on where you live. Around here, projects would sell for less than the figures mentioned above.

    Besides tires, all would need cables, housings, bearings and grease. Riding them as is would risk damaging bearing surfaces.

    +1 Bike #1 would probably sell as a part out. Either you part it out, polish and clean all of the components, or the buyer probably will. Lots of rust will hurt value of the bike if sold complete.

    Yellow bike has some desirable parts on it as well. Appears to have less rust.

    Too little info on the wheels. In general, buyers want matching sets (front and rear) and 700c (not 27 inch). Buyers also want clinchers.

    If you have the time/tools/aptitude/interest, two of these would clean up pretty well, and the other would make a good part out. As is or dirty parts sell for a hefty discount.

    All these bikes look like higher-end models, great finds. As wk101 mentioned, they're all projects (but worthwhile ones) that would be nice if fixed up. Here in Vancouver, you could probably get around $100 for each.

    I'm interested in more close-up photos of that Sekine, and second T-Mar's call for the serial letter (did you mean, X9?).
