    high bidder will likely negotiate it down to about 500 more than the 2nd highest bid.
    He was in at 2900, then backed out for a while, now appears to be making sure no one else gets it.

    I'd not pay 7500 (I'd get a new bike with 11sp SR), but that sure is a beautiful group.

    Century finish - check.
    Century finish high-flange C-Record hubs - check.
    New old stock - check.
    Not surprised - check.

    And if I recall right, his doesn't have high-flange Century hubs on it either.

    unbelievable price. Lovely gruppo, but seriously? Those sherrif star hubs in Century finish are hard to find indeed. Ah well, I hope some japanese geek with a nice lit display cage is happy with it.
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    Of all the groupo's, Record C is my favorite! I guess the current bidder is setting a new bench mark for Campy's Record C groups, so hang on to your C's until the price's go up in Spring! Or maybe all Record C's will be trading on the Futures Exchanges as Derivatives!

    These prices fascinate me, they really do.

    I had a long conversation with a local collector over coffee last weekend.

    He purchased a fairly rare De Rosa from me last summer, and when I dropped it off, he showed me part of his collection.

    It looked like the hidden warehouse from the Indiana Jones movies.

    He had four C-Record gruppos in original packaging.

    None were for sale, and judging by his home's location, money wasn't much of an issue.

    He literally had three large shelving units in his basement with Campy gruppos in their original boxes.

    I jokingly referred to a condition called OCD.

    He got a pretty good laugh out of that, but his daughter didn't find the humor!

    Then I posed a simple question about the future for these goodies, and he stated that he was just biding his time for the correct market conditions.

    So, they aren't all necessarily off to the Pacific basin folks.

    That's insane, I suppose if you want it that badly and can afford it then the sky is the limit.

    I can't say that ive seen much of the century stuff sell. but even adding up the individual parts at almost twice what i'd think they would be worth It still doesn't seem to add up.

    To me it is, but Steve, some folks are in rarefied air.

    I should see if you can go over to his house this summer, as he has a factory fresh Vitus just like Jake's.

    Looks like it was never ridden out of his driveway!

    For most of us prices like that un-comprehensable. But for those with means they're just doing what the rest of us do except at a higher level. I dont hold a single thing against them, its their money to do as they please.

    Correct.

    I have a good friend that is in our BMW club, and he has a king's ransom invested in his collection.

    No one says a word though, including his spouse, as he works incredibly hard with his practice.

    ...and in the bigger picture, I couldn't really care less, but I still find it an interesting diversion this morning.

    Last year I passed up a beautiful SOMEC in 60cm with C-Record Century Groupo. I didn't like the way it looked so I passed on it. The guy wanted $575.00, Oh, and it was all in very good shape.

    Sorry for the Japan comment. That was unnecessary sterotyping.

    if money wasnt an issue, absolutely. a custom frame dressed in century c-record is at the top of my lust list and if i were stupid rich i would spend stupid money to get it, especially if it were still on the boxes.

    being newly married and my 20s that is not the case however. i will just have to "settle" for my silver c-record cranks and monoplanars on a stock geometry tommasini.

    This forum sure seems overly concerned with the prices of vintage bikes and components lately.
