Sun Tour Full Sprint Drivetrain, Command Shifters, etc

Full Sun Tour Sprint drivetrain, accushift plus, 7spd, with Command shifters. Not sure of the year though, perhaps pics can help solve that.

Crank, 172.5
Rear derailleur, short cage
Front derailleur
Command shifters

Everything works perfectly, shifting is super positive, slots into gear just as nice as my SRAM red. Rear d. has a few scratches as to the cranks, pics to come.

What's it worth?

Suntour Command shifters are pretty hot on ebay right now. Good value there alone. Depending on condition, this partial group might bring $150 on ebay. Full group buyers would want brake calipers, levers, and several other parts.

I have the brake levers, though they are stamped "Gran-Compe"

I saw a set of command shifters, with no instructions go for 60 bucks by themselves. That made me think that this group could maybe get 200+

I'll get you guys some pictures to better asses

Thrifty Bill is mighty close on this one. I bought NOS RD and shifters for under $40 off Ebay. Today, I know where NOS rear derailleurs alone are available for ~$40.

Crank - $50-75
RD - $35-50
FD - $15-25
shifters - $15-25
BB - $30-45

All if sold separately and if in excellent condition. Less for the whole group.


This is one of the high performing "orphan" groups from Suntour. Along with a number of other Suntour running gear groups/bits, the Sprint has some catching up to do, in terms of value, with the better known Superbe or Cyclone,

I don't have a good feel for the crankset value without pics. If it is in really sweet condition, maybe that could put you at or over the $200 mark.

Added comment: Based on pictures posted later, it looks like $150 value to me. Crankset would have to show less wear to reach the $200 mark. I don't these components would sell to a collector (too much wear). They would likely sell to an end user.


Let us know what you get for it. That will be a good data point!

The condition is excellent for a group that has been ridden/loved for the past 20 years, however I'd be stretching the truth quite a bit if I were to say they were immaculate. Of course everything is in perfect working order.

So the individual parts would go for more? Strange, I would have thought a collector would value the complete group at a higher price.

Again, I'll clean everything up tonight and get you guys some pics tomorrow.

Thanks for the repies

If you want a brief history about Suntour and some on this group search 'Sunset for Suntour' in google. I read it all the time for a little info on various lines of Suntour components.

Unfortunately, as others have said, this group is more of a value for a buyer than a seller. Trust miamijim on his estimates . The command shifters might go for more as they are a unique item. I agree that these are very, very nice components, but they just don't have a huge market, and I don't know that any degree of salesmanship is going to increase their value.

Couple more. This website is a maze, but it's got some interesting stuff if you're willing to click through the random links:

I don't believe they have your year, but:

Well, here's the '87 catalog. Your look like 85/86 based on the date codes?
