Campy Crank - chain rings - Value?

I was rooting around in my Bicycle Box and found these:

I purchased them in 1979 or so. The are marked STRADA 165. No date, no SN.

About $3.50 or whatever the market will bear.

You just answered your own question

eBay is your friend.

No...as was written...whatever the market will bear. The $150 is what the market would bear at that time, assuming that was a selling price and not someone else"s for sale price. There is a difference.

I've spent as little as $30 (w/ shipping) for really nice ones with a good set of rings. Last week I was given some with marginal chainrings. But I've yet to find a set at the dump.

As you can see the market bears can really move around quite a bit. And speaking of bears, there was one outside the house last night.

I'd be happy to pay $45 for them, so I'm sure you could get double that on ebay. Do you have a bike you could put them on?

Check the BCD. If it's 144mm and no date code that puts them '67-'72. If 151mm, then you may have a real find.

Didn't the 151's come in a larger, square box?

Cranks in good condition, sans rings, I'd probably say in the range of $30-$70. NOS brings much bigger numbers.

Even my diminutive wife doesn't ride a 165 crank. The value will diminish because of that. Like Charles Wahl said "Pista" and you have a winner, otherwise, whatever someone will give you.

eBay is the great value determinator. A 10 day no reserve auction open to Europe and Asia will set a value.

165 will bring a higher price if you add word like "great for fixie/fred conversion" etc~

OK, great feedback, event the $3.50 ones. I am really ignorant, and dispite working in the high tech industry famous for TLA (three letter achronyms), I don't know what BCD is. Between Center Diameters? I assumme this is the mouing distance for the rings like 5x 5.5 for wheels?

OK, got it from sheldons page - 144. Strade is for street and hence a double ring crank.

Thanks to those who educated me in a straight forward reply.

I do not have a bike to put these on and would like to get a fair (market) price, not give them away. I had visions of going 100% Campy earlier in my life and started collecting a couple of pieces since I already had a bike with Campy Record parts (see introductions). I have since abandoned that idea, since it is over 30 years old.
