Vintage German Bauer

Just inherited this beautiful pristine and original condition Bauer Weltmeister. Any idea what it's worth?

Welcome to the forum Lishanka!

We are clearly in the 1960's here and this is certainly a top model in great condition.

Bauer made some very fine bicycles.

Very cool bike. But vintage bikes from germany are pretty much an unknown to most. I would think $400-500.

We don't see these very often, would you mind posting some more pics? Maybe of the tubing joints, dropouts and other frame features as well as the components?

What si the tubing material?

Better close up pics. Worth more than $500. More like $800+ if clean, and original. And what part of the world are you in? Could be worth more in Germany than in the US.

I certainly will post more pics. All original, all in original condition. I know nothing about bikes! So I can begin with this; Campagnolo gears shift, Grand Sport, Jabo tire rims,Ideale 59 bike seat, Titan handle bars with S.Maes/V.Steenbergen.Brake components say Weinmann/Vainqueur999. Pedals are Campagnolo. Crank says Stronglight. I will add photos shortly.
