Value/Info: Campy Pista equipped 1970's Windsor Pro TRACK
I've posted a few threads about this bike and it's rebuild and still have not come across much information on the bike. Here are the two internet resources which have had some mildly helpful info:
1. The one catalogue image I've seen of the old Windsor track bikes.
2. The one thread on C&V that had a similar model, decals and all.

I'm not going to keep it as wall art and was looking at putting it on the market pretty soon, either in the C&V marketplace or on my local Craigslist. I'm thinking I could easily part it out and do pretty well if I needed, but I'd much rather keep it together.
I'm wondering the date of the bike, the date of the parts (cranks, hubs, and rims), and what would be a fair price. I have something in mind but want to see what you guys think.
