    Help me figure out how much more I need to spend--please

    I am looking at a track bike that has the following. Frame, bb, head set, pedals and seat post. No wheels, crank, handlebars and so-on.

    It is an Italian frame around late 80's vintage. Could someone help me figure out how much more I will need to spend to get it running with all campy and italian components?

    Thanks for any help,
    Curt

    Well the frame may cost me $700. How much is a wheel set that would be apropriate for that vintage and a stem, crank, handlebars? I am bidding on something, but don't know how much I should bid?

    wheelsets really vary in price... but anything with campy record (or especially c-record) hubs will cost you a pretty penny for sure. stem and bars should be vintage cinelli stuff which can go 200+ for the two items in good shape. cranks are in the same boat, for vintage campy stuff.. it's all pricey.

    So, 250 crank, 225ish bars and stem, wheels? I have a bike with high flange, but it is has 27" wheels. All campy record from the 70's. Wonder if I could trade for what I need?

    Thanks. A wheel set is going to be a bear no doubt.

    if he wants late 80s italian, he should get the cinelli 2a, not the stem you linked derek.

    i got my early 80s italian monstrosity for 225 bucks, but my next ones costing a bit more...

    you could be spending anywhere from 500 to 900 dollars, depending on how smart a shopper you are.

    you dont have to tell me that, you know how i am about those stems

    they just look better on 70s and older...

    ttt made some stems that would work for the OP too.
