Shimano Sante Group. Your Input

I am not sure if this is the right section of the forum to post this, but i was wondering if anyone knew how much the Shimano Sante Group would go for? my set is not in perfect condition, some which are scratched, but in perfect order.
i have the

Brake Levers
Derailers
Headset
Bottom Bracket
Cranks
Front and rear Brakes
and shifters
And Hubs w/ cassette
Chainrings

Here is a picture of some of them that i own. the rest of it are still on my bike.


i've got some offers for some of my stuff, but would like to know if anyone has any idea how much i could sell these for.

Sadly not too much. It is very good stuff but doesn't have the value of old Campy. I wouldn't even bother selling it because the value is not going to be worth the loss of a perfectly functional group.

I had the brake calipers on my Prelude. They worked just fine, and I loved the silver/pearl finish combo. They're not very collectible but are a nice group. I wouldn't mind having it myself.,,,,BD

Umm...have you sold any Sante components lately? I sold two groups over the last two years and got more for it than I did the last Super Record group I sold. It's more inline with the prices of good quality Mavic components, as the people who want it, REALLY want it. Remember, this stuff is better than Ultregra/600. If you've got good powder still on the group, you'll get something for it.

A full group pulled over $500 for me last year, but that was a FULL group, including hubs. In your case, you'll probably get about $50 apiece for the rear derailleur and brakes. Maybe $25 for the shifters and brake levers. With really good photos, you'll do better with the derailleurs and brakes. The Sante that has sold recently hasn't been well-photographed. It looks like a NOS brakeset went for $139 recently. You should do at least 60% of that with great photos.

Like I said, the market is definitely out there for these components, you just have to impress the buyers with your photos.

I can't say what it is worth, but I did sell a Sante RD a couple of years ago. I wish I had the whole group as it is really nice quality stuff, and I am not even a Shimano lover.

Sante is great! I have most of the group on my Davidson now.
As others have said, there doesn't seem to be much collector value, being Shimano, but the components do seem to fetch good prices on eBay. Your group, judging by the grainy photos, does appear to be fairly beat up, so obviously this will detract from the value. If I was you, I would keep it on a bike, as the performance is excellent, as is most of Shimano late '80s offerings. However, if you do decide that you want to part out the pieces individually and sell them, I may be interested in the headset, if it's good shape functionally and physically.

Thanks for the fast input guys. the grainy phone picture was just to grab a picture really fast. and of course i will be cleaning them up and taking better pics. Ebay is probably the way to go since i have no idea where else i could sell these on.

I'm with you guys that its not worth much in its current condition, but worth enough for me to try and sell them for some extra spending cash.

You'll probably do well.

This was an excellent group. I rode it on two separate Schwinn Circuits provided by my racing team in the late 1980's. Truly a stylish group only equalled, imho, by the late 80s C-Record stuff. It's a shame that such beautiful components are just not as easily found as they once were.

^^^Do you mean with the Sante cranks or with a replacement crank set?

The Circuit will have an English threaded 68mm bottom bracket, but the length of the spindle will depend on the crank that you use. (I don't know what spindle length for the Sante)

Ow! freewheel mounted on hub. yummy. hopefully that's only for the publicity shot.

actually, i quite enjoyed the BioPace rings, and never had any difficulty with them in about 20 years on one of my bikes.

I believe that's a cassette, not a freewheel, so no worries!

7 speed cassette? OK. looks like a freewheel (no lockring) but perhaps that was one where the last sprocket acted as the lockring. I don't own any cassette hubs from that era... we are looking at late 80s here, aren't we?

Yes, mid to late 80's, Uniglide, and no, there was no lockring like a modern cassette. You are correct in assuming the top cog threaded on and acted as a lockring, the other cogs are splined.

I have 4 or 5 hubs of that era, they work just fine.

When did Hyper start then? All of my Aerowinds and Voyager use the same cog/lockring uniglide from the early eighties. I know about the changeover period models, and have even seen a few. They went from outside thread, to inside and outside, to only inside. The dual thread ones are pretty versatile, I often wonder why they only did it such a short time. I guess to cover existing parts stocks at the manufacturer, with no thought to how well it covered the bases for the customer.,,,,BD

Don't know how I'd feel about riding a ghost bike.
