more value-1994 campy record or 1985 super record????

Here is the deal. thinking of selling my big della santa frame& fork only. it came with 8 speed campy record(brifters) believe its 1994 since the crank is stamped 94. i was thinking of possible putting that group on my other della santa which now has super record on it and selling the super record group as i could use a little money to put back in by bike account.
both groups are-imo-equal as far as rideability. which one would bring a better price? i believe the 8 speed group is harder to find but super record is super record after all. i already have one super record group saved up for my de rosa when i get the time to switch it out for the dura ace 7400 that came with it. any help always appreciated. joe

I'm no help on the Campy stuff Joe--it seems like SR is all over the map in eBay auctions--but I'd be interested in taking some of that DA 7400 off your hands when you get around to removing it.

I would sell both groups and get the current campy stuff. Regarding 7400 to SR, would that not be a performance and quality decline?

The 8-sp record shifts better Keep it and sell the SR. It's probably a wash (+/- 10%) on the value, but you will enjoy riding a bike with Record more. Ditto about riding 74xx DA over SR.

Thing about the 8-speed stuff, I'm not sure it's that easy to repair and maintain. That said, I think that group has some upside, if it's well cared for. Right at the tipping point before carbon fiber starting creeping all over the Record group like kudzu. I think it has the carbon lever bodies, but otherwise has the classic alloy look combined with modern shifting and braking that make it perfect for contemporary classic-style frames (like a Della Santa). Maybe one of Campagnolo's high points in some ways - the design-driven C-Record bits had been sifted out and dual pivots and slant parallelogram embraced, but still all that shiny metal. Taken good care of, I think it has some upside, as well as present value. I think I'd keep it for the Della Santa and care for it well, and sell the SR, all the while keeping my fingers crossed that those 8-speed brifters don't develop issues. Maybe a cottage industry for early brifter repair and rebuild will develop - maybe it's already out there.

8 speed Ergo is very good, I have a set, and one extra set of wheels with the EXA hub and ti "cassette".

never bothered to upgrade, mine is all alloy.

Now, 11 speed Centaur with reworked parts so it was all alloy, that might be fun.

Condition condition condition.

A full SR group in 8/10 or better condition will set you back about a $1K.

IMHO, you'd get a better return for your time and money piecing it out. I've seen nice SR rear mechs go in the $125 range on the bay.

I agree entirely, if you're willing to deal with the added hassles.

I'd list the SR as group first, advertising, packaging and mailing a parted out group is time consuming. Advertise it with a fixed price you'd be happy with, if it sells it sells. If it doesnt, part it out.

There is considerable savings to a buyer if a group is complete, mailed seperatly shipping will be in the $100-125 range, packaged as a group in 1 box shipping is ~$20.

I'd ride the ergos. Campy 8 speed stuff is getting rare. In mint condition, those ergos could probably pull $200 or more on ebay. The RD over $100.

Yep, I'm talking about the 90's Record stuff. Check completed ebay auctions: http://completed.shop.ebay.com/i.htm...c0.m283&_rdc=1
