    1961 Puch Bergmeister - What's it worth?

    I recently bought this bike not knowing what it was, turns out to be a 61' Puch Bergmeister. I'm trying to decide how much money and effort i should put into this restoration. The bike is in good condition, I have thoroughly cleaned and removed all rust. If it's only worth around $300 all built up, I won't be taking too much care of it. However, If it's worth more i will definitely get some decals and pay more attention to this piece. I know i don't have all the components yet, and this post will decide which ones i get.

    Frame - 57cm 1961 Puch Bergmeister w/ Oiler port in the BB, and Pump mount.
    Cranks/BB - Puch 61
    Front derailleur - Campagnolo ?
    Brakeset - Weinmann vainqueur 999
    Bars - French track bars
    Cable guide - Campagnolo ?
    Shifters - Campagnolo downtube
    Freewheel - J.Moyne 4 speed freewheel
    + Some other stuff i might switch out.

    Thanks!

    In my opinion, less than it would cost you to build it up like that. And, again my opinion, once built up, the bicycle will not look like the purple on, not unless you spend hundreds of dollars on chrome plating, just for starters.

    Not meaning to burst the bubble, but you might want to be careful investing too much money in the bicycle.

    That's all i wanted to know, I will most likely keep the Campy bits for myself and start a single speed project. Thank you.

    Just finished the build, some hipster will enjoy it i'm sure. The pedals are temporary hopefully.
