Campagnolo Wheelset

We just got three Campagnolo wheelsets at the co-op and I'm wondering what the value range would be. They appear to be older hubs that were assembled with early 90s rims, and then hung up somewhere for 20 or thirty years. Very dusty but the rims have almost no wear. As assembled they are good wheels but probably not going to satisfy a restorationist looking for any particular period. I'm looking for a local sale co-op price, not the max that could by achieved by disassembling or posting on ebay.

I bought one set and took it home to examine. The hub is a high flange with a winged wheel logo and a "71" on the jam nut, so I'm guessing a gran sport or tipo. The rim is a fairly deep silver finish Lambda Strada. The spokes are stainless but not butted. The build quality seems good and the wheels are true. The rest of the wheelsets are similar - the front and back wheels match but the hubs and rims are from different periods, probably all from the lower-middle range of Campy stuff.

As a coop sell, I would think about $60

The set you got is nice and will clean up easily . If the others are similar , I would think (co-op price ) about $30 a wheel and they should move along . Slightly higher if a matching set. Joe

Interesting. The other co-op in town gets nicer stuff than we do, and I think I would expect to pay around $150 to $200 for the set over there.

I'm not a Campy expert, so mainly just checking to make sure my ID of the components is plausible and we're not giving away a $1000 wheelset for $100.

They don't have skewers so I guess that lowers the value.

Clinchers? Some vintage rider wouldn't mind slapping these on a bike, in place of tubulars. lol
Looks like a rebuild, judging by the flanges. Yeah, maybe fifty or sixty bucks for the set. Not a big market for Tipo's.
Never understood - in the 70's - why somebody wanted to save a few bucks buying these over Nuovo's.

At our Co-op there is only two classes of client that would want these type of wheels: the homeless trying to keep a 70's era bike-boom bike (minimally) running for bottle picking purposes, or a Campagnolo collector. The former expects something in the $5 per wheel range. The latter only wants things labelled: "Record".

I rode on Tipo hubs for many years, and if adequately maintained, they'll last almost forever. The Lamda rims are decent but utilitarian. However, temper your price expectations. The highest return we've ever got was $100 for a new unused Campy wheelset with C-Record hubs, Record Pave tubular rims, and DT double-butted spokes.

Again, very interesting. Where are you located if you don't mind me asking?

I'm in Phoenix and these will definitely go to a homeless dude for $10 (or work trade equivalent) if they're not labeled and hung up high where they can't be reached without a ladder. We don't really get collectors. Our high end market is more like retro-mod hobbyists who may or may not know anything about Campy having different levels of components, and would probably use a freewheel hub for a single speed. Then there's me, who has a bunch of 80s road bikes and is not strict about restoring to original.

Any kind of matched 700 wheelset in decent condition is hard to come by, and the other co-op in town has good unmatched wheels marked around $40 to $80 each. If these don't sell right away they'll end up getting used on an 80s or 90s road bike that we'll sell to a college student for $250 or so. We have a Casati right now that these would look good on, but it's currently all Shimano 105 including the wheels.

Those are nice rims, a few years back, I bought a couple sets of those nos from Italy for $180 per set, plus shipping. The one shown ( V profile) is similar in mass to the V profile Omega, just not anodized. I had them built up with stainless double butted spokes, and Shimano 6207 hubs, then put them on a couple of old Treks I had, getting rid of the Matrix wheel sets they came with. Big improvement.

I would agree on $60-70 a set for the wheels not a big demand for 70's era vintage rider parts right now. You may want to consider building one or all of them up with good used tires, 6 speed freewheel and scewers if you have them on hand and ask $120 for set ready to mount on a vintage bike a lot of potential buyers like stuff easy and will pay a bit of a premium.

The value of the wheels depend solely on the state of the bearing races. If cup and cone is damaged the wheels are worth next to nothing.

I picked up a pair of wheels with Campy Chorus hubs, built but not used and hung for 15 yrs for $50 back in 2013.

Put them on my Pinarello after changing the hub to Record with 9 speed block.

I'd agree most of the value here is in the hubs. Spoke holes and rim brake track will fail well before a Tipo hub race.
