Modolo aero levers

How much is a NOS set of these actually worth. The prices on eBay are all over the map. Also, what is the actual name for this model of lever? I've seen them listed as aero, ergo, even Kronos. Which ones are they? Thanks

Do your Ebay search for "completed auctions"(not much there at the moment, though - I just checked for you). That will give you a pretty good idea of what the brake levers will sell for. Prices are always all over the map. Final value is always a product of how many people want the product and how badly. If two people want the levers, the final value sky rockets. If the levers are NOS (new old stock) expect the prices to soar.

You can, hopefully, find the correct name on Velobase. Just do a standard search there for brake levers, Modolo and you will be presented with a list to compare to.

+those are BIN ASKING PRICES, which are basically meaningless. People can ask anything they want. Its what they actually sell for that matters. NOS on ebay does usually get a hefty, silly premium, from buyers that just have to have NOS. Term is grossly overused IMHO.

I had also looked at the completed auctions and as you say there is nothing there at the moment. On the other hand, in my mind I thought I had looked for these on velobase but I just went back and checked and apparently I had not because there they were, so thanks for that. For the curious the model is qt-exe.
