Serial number has little to no bearing on value. It's all about condition and the components. Condition Is more impacted by storage and handling, and less about miles ridden.

Beautiful bike. You’re going to get some great input from the experts here. I find Alan bikes interesting, almost captivating, but I know very little about them. The components all seem to be in great condition and have decent value by themselves.

Really nice clean bike looks to have full matching Campy Super Record components with delta brakes which is a big plus value wise. If everything is good and the tires are fairly nice I would say $800-1000 in value.

I don't believe that these are Delta brakes.

I first thought the components are 1st gen Chorus, but if the brake calipers are not "monoplanar," it could be the Athena gruppo.

Bikes: Several, to many to list, mainly vintage British build. From A-Z of brands there are two letters missing, X&Y.

Now these are not SR record parts nor are these Delta brakes. Can't see well which exact model, but C-record chainset with Athena rest (brake levers with black poking out meaning plastic body)

The C-Record crank set is about as recognizable as it gets and this is an Athena crank set down to the goofy dust caps.

The handlebars themselves and the stem that holds them are not Campagnolo.
