Question about wheelsets and their value?

Hey guys, my step-dad brought home these wheelsets and I was curious as to what their production name is, or their value, because I am looking to sell them.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

There's really not enough information to give you a very good estimate. In the end it really doesn't matter anyway because the real value is determined by what a buyer is willing to pay.

By comparison: Brand new Ultegra/Open Pro wheelsets are typically available in the $250.00 range for front and rear. You can buy the whole wheelset cheaper than you can buy the component parts to build yourself. I'd have to rate a new such wheelset as superior to any that you pictured and your's may be used to boot. I'm thinking that $75.00 to $100.00 for a rear and around $75.00 for a front would be a fair price. Now all that you have to do is to find a buyer.

I'd go with Retro Grouch here. The wheels are older and you don't have a full history to tell a potential buyer. Due to this I'd only add you should also go with: Or Best Offer.

Oh - you might want to pull the freewheel and offer it separately if the buyer wants it.
