CL would be the worst place, unless maybe you live in a big metro area. I would maybe take a flyer and put it on eBay for $2200-$2500 ish and see what happens. It would probably take a while to sell because basically your market is a relatively small number of collectors that will pay that price.

Otherwise as a nice condition vintage track bike I would think about $1000-1200. For reference, a year or so ago I had an 85 Merckx Pista frame and fork that I thought was worth about $800 or $900 but ended up gettin about $550 for it on eBay.

Thanks, that's very helpful! The only documentation I have is the email I got from Eddy's assistant, but I'll see if I can dofi any images from the expo -- that's a good idea.
