Not a bike, a catalog
 
Just dug out of my stuff a 1982 Support Catalog from Campy. (Did you know at that time they had an unconditional lifetime warranty against defects?) This is the only one I have seen. None on ebay in the past 12 months. What is it worth?

I haven't any idea, but from watching Antiques Roadshow on PBS condition makes a huge difference in determining the value of items such as this. Is it pristine, used, missing pages, or are there big greasy thumbprints from slack jawed cyclists dreaming over campy? Maybe a big greasy Lance Armstrong fingerprint with full documentation?

OK I'm carried away, but really condition and presentation make the value in this type of thing.

Probably this one:

Note lifetime warranty against defects but not use, a pretty big loophole.

For instance, if you broke a crank arm near the pedal eye and it showed toe-strap wear, you were not going to get a new crank arm.

Now, if you were competing at the Nationals and your Campagnolo equipped bike needed attention you might get a free overhaul with lots of fresh Campagnolo as part of the service.

Well nice colour printed catalogs go for about $4-8 at bike shows top dollar considering Campy likey better kept I'd say $3-4 sold on ebay with discount media shipping and listing.

$30-40 based on condition.

Yes, that is the one.
