To Clean or Not to Clean, that is the question


I have a box of old Campy parts from the 70s I have decided to sell. Most need a good cleaning as they were taken off a bike and then just stored for 30-40 years, road grime and all. The parts are in good working condition but just need a good cleaning.

My question is should I clean them? Do the vintage purchasers prefer to clean the parts themselves so it is done "right"?. I would probably just clean with the green liquid cleaning stuff and an old toothbrush but I figure some prefer a different method.

Tailwinds, John
