Suntour Superbe Pro/Superbe Groupo

. Located in NJ (08824) about 50 mi. From NYC and Philly. Hoping to sell locally. Everything needed for a complete build, except toe clips, cables and bar tape, in both classic or aero configuration. I know I can get much more individually but donít have the patience to deal with it. Thanks for the input.
* custom built wheels recently trued, so ready to ride. Bearings in excellent shape. Mavic G40 clincher rims and DT double butted s.s. spokes (36 holes). Bomb proof!
* 52x42 crank (no shoe rub) w/ original Superbe b.b.and English threading. 144 bcd.
* brakes will come with spare Suntour pads.
* levers need hoods. Also including period correct Royal Gran Compe aero levers.
* pedals are aesthetically rough, but mechanically sound. Toe straps are Sugino. Including a pair of Samson clipless pedals w/cleats.
* both deraileurs are Superbe Pro and can be used as 6 or 7 speed.
* chain is Suntour but should be replaced.



* freewheel is a Winner Pro 13-24 7 speed.
* stem is an SR Royal an bars are Sakae Custom Road
* saddle is a Bernard Hinault Turbo.
* Headset is a Tange Levin.
* including a classic KWH Ciclomaster with cadence sensor.

I've had zero luck selling parts locally. Fortunately, shipping components is easy, except wheels get somewhat involved.

The parts pile above in my market might bring $100, while sold individually, and shipped (via ebay), they might bring $400. Your choice. Chances are that local buyer will then pop them on eBay.

I routinely buy bikes locally where the price of the bike is less than the value of one part. It's how it goes.

Hopefully your market is better.

Update / fyi

I just wanted to update since I did not get many responses. I sold the items on FB Marketplace in about 1 week. I got 6 replies (3 wanted to haggle and 3 were willing to pay full price). The market is out there for classic stuff at a reasonable price. Then again, other than southern CA, I am probably in the best market. Selling price was $299, cash only.

$300 is about right, slightly on the cheaper side. Late versions of the SSP group that can do 8-speed indexed, with the aero brake levers, sell for double or triple that price depending on condition. A complete set of Superbe (not SSP) in very good condition is worth around $500. Earlier SSP groups or mixed Superbe / SSP stuff with friction-only levers are worth generally $300-600, depending on selling venue and condition.
