Assos pedals

Received an odd little component lot (which included a 47 t NR ring)...

But these Assos pedals sort of were the Main reason I was interested.. What is the true value?

Other than that, a cool unmarked ITM stem with a quill nut type I have never seen before, an orphan Cinelli death pedal, a OMAS big sliding cup and two spindles/3 bearing cartridges...

Assos pedals are considered to be a sort of C&V grail weight weenie component.
They were one of the lightest clipped pedals produced in the 80's.
I think the Vittoria pedals of the same era was a bit lighter, but it was made from mostly resin parts and might not have been as reliable as the Assos pedals that had more metal on it.
They go for quite a lot of money, speciallly in close to or NOS condition.
IIRC, I've seen asking prices for NOS Assos pedals go for at least $300. But I think $200+ would be a more realistic price for NOS as the pedals tend to sit for a long time for sale at the higher price.

Not sure if these are NOS but they are silk smooth. And pretty minty!

That stem seems to be a swedge style fitment type with a barrel from a different style stem.

I found it finally on velobase. Itís actually a wedge but has that interesting knurled end. Very drought and well made.

Assos also made a beautiful (Much better looking than the also Swiss, Edco Competition crankset.) crankset that is highly prized by collectors.
They are rare and very expensive too, if you can even find a set.
They also produced rims, but IIRC, they might have been designed for track use only.
The very high asking prices and the rarity of these Assos components make it really hard to build up a C&V bike with their group of components.
i had been searching for an Assos crankset in very good condition or NOS for many years now and I never found, let alone, afford the ones that rarely pop up for sale...... I pretty much gave up trying to get one.....
