Are they 700C or 27"? It will make a difference as many people prefer 700C due to tire selection and availability. As well, Maillard's Helicomatic hubs are often disparaged for poor bearing life. Probably, in really clean condition, straight and true in 700C, you are looking at maybe $100. Probably there will be shipping on top of that for a buyer to pay since finding a local buyer for pickup is unlikely. With the rear bearings replaced with Grade 25 ball bearings they are a reasonable wheel set.
