Has 8 speed campy chorus wheelset and shifters, veloce rear derailleur.
My question is it worth getting to take the wheels and shifters off and replace and resell?
If I kept the wheels and shifters I would have two complete campy chorus 8 speed groups to build two frames I have.
What would be a good offer? I'm a little weary of the Trek fork... Why was the fork replace?
If the original fork was a threaded aluminum Canondale fork with steel steerer there is a good chance that the steerer broke and the fork had to be replaced like I expereinced. My Canondale was a bit older with 7 speed. You need to be comfortable that the fork has a similar rake to the original.
Yes I have use for the campy stuff... for a late 1990s biachi build. The wheels are the biggest plus for me. I have some 105 bits to replace the components with. I'll contact the seller... there is the off chance I may know the guy... his name sound familiar.
While $325 is on the high end for a donor, it has some pretty nice parts on it. What does your parts bin look like? If you have some decent stuff in the bin, say Shimano RX100 or better, you can probably remove all the parts, rebuild the bike, and come close to break even (of course, the parts bin would take a major hit). I try to keep a set or two of Shimano 105 and RX100 for just this purpose.
I just bought a donor bike yesterday with a similar plan, needed the wheels and the tricolor bits for a personal build. I'll either rebuild the donor with RX100, or just sell off the frameset. Great way to get parts, and sometimes you can find a donor for about what the wheels alone (used) are selling for. In my case, I think the bike rebuilt with RX100 will sell for more than I paid for it, so I am basically swapping RX100 bits from my bin, for nicer tricolor bits. No brainer.
Let him keep the pedals and knock the price down a tad.
