30's campagnolo track hubs with wood rims

Anybody have an idea of what 1930's low flange Campagnolo track hubs, laced to wood rims, could be worth ? They appear to be in good condition. I am thinking of purchasing those wheels and the pictures I have would'nt be helpful. Thanks !

Campagnolo didn't make hubs until the late 50s, so your date is off by a bit. If the seller is claiming the 30s, they don't know much and I wouldn't believe a word they say. If you can, check the lock nut, it will have a date stamp.

That said, assuming everything is in fair to good condition, I'd think $150-$200 would be fair.

Thanks ! saw those on Ebay, just checked again and the seller even claims they are from the 20's . Based on your valuation they're definitely not a good deal , glad I asked first.

The rims could be from the 20s, meaning I would never ride on them, they are wall hangers. The hubs, if they are track hubs, could fetch up to $100.

If I were buying them, I'd have the seller cut the spokes. Shipping would be much less that way.

but the price is subjective, because you are now talking about art and not bike parts.
