Campagnolo "no-name" brakes

All,

Looking for the value of early Campagnolo brakes with no name stamp on the calipers.

Thanks,

Kurt

We really need photo's and better decription to even have a clue on value. Some info that would help approx year bike they came off type model condition completness. Without details and photo's the price range is $10-200.

I am reluctant to post photos as the source may be compromised. I do know early Campagnolo brakes are valuable, I just don't know what the market is these days.

From what I have seen they look pretty good, as expected, some surface rust on the adjusters and qr mechanism, by no means NOS or even close, I'd call it appropriate patina given the age.

I don't. for example if the brakes are NIB condition they could be worth say $500 (not that I really know) if they are used but still in VG condition maybe $300, if they are very used missing the original holders and all the metal is rusty they may be worth $50.

Ask a coin or firearms collector for a value without a pic see what they say.

Check Ebay for past auctions.

Can we give a range of values where we assume 7/10 condition? It might help the OP to get a general range and I think we can all relate to preserving a source. I'd offer a range myself if I had any idea. I don't.

Campagnolo "no-name" brakes

Lets dance, put on your red shoes....

I'm not that familiar with pricing on these, but I would imagine $200 and up. And if you make them shiny and take good pics, add $50. People really flip over shiny parts. Bling, bling.

Actually the chrome is really good on Campy stuff. A little elbow grease and the rust pitting fades away.

I thought these things were very hard to find. Yesterday I was looking at CL and saw a bicycle that had what appeared to be the early style brakes. Philly Craigslist, Mondia special.

Thought about picking it up but it's just not in the cards now. The listing is from Feb 19, so it could be gone by now anyway.

They are difficult to locate. But those who have them do not always know of what they have. Way back they were just how Campagnolo brakes came (for only a short time) when the decorated versions arrived many liked those better as it proclaimed to the world you had Campagnolo, you paid dearly for them over everyone else's brakes so why not show them off.

In 1972 Weinmann, Mafac center pulls or Universal center or side pulls were about $25. per pair.

Campagnolo's were $69-$75 per pair.

It was a whole different league.

No-name brakes are extremely rare (1968-69) and I would put a floor price on those brakes at $300 as long as they are complete. Even if they are not complete, if the no-name arms are clean someone would buy them for several hundred $$$ and move the arms over to a NOS brakeset to complete a late 60's MASI or Paramount restoration, no problem.
