Frejus with Campy parts, whatís it worth

Honestly, I have never used a forum for posting, only for learning. I was curious if anyone knew what my departed friend's bike is worth and what year it would be. It is a Frejus in all chrome with Campy parts. The number on the frame is really cool 100100. I know he used it to tryout for the Munich Olympics but missed the team by a spot. He gave this bike to me in about 1992 and I have kept is since. I have not cleaned it since he was alive. He taught me how to ride it and work on it at that time, but I have since had it hanging in the garage.

Good job with the photos Plehrmann and welcome to the forum!

we are certainly in the early-to-mid 1960's here

the cycle's 3TTT Gran Prix stem launched 1963-64

the naked tan Unicanitor saddle is a colour only offered in the product's early years, later it was offered in black only

the machine's Campag chainset exhibits the old 151mm BCD

other readers will be able to give more and better information for you...

Tough to say but this one is worth more as parts than a bike whole bike $600 current soft market parts in this nice of shinny not restored shape $1500 or so maybe more on good at auction.

...I paid about $600 about ten years ago for a similar age Frejus. The 60's ones are not that commonly found in the US, because there were not that many people in the 1960's sufficiently interested in cycling to spend what it cost to buy one. I was told mine was sold out of American Cyclery in San Francisco. Mine has chrome ends, but they've been painted over. I'm not sure if the entire frame might be chromed under the pain, but I don't think it is.

It's difficult to assess a value on something like this, these days. The C+V marketplace is pretty flat, even here in NorCal, where these bikes were always popular before. A lot of the people who remember them fondly are aging out and dying off, like your friend. There's no real marketing out there, so the combination of e-bikes and CF frames enthusiasm has created a world where these, once highly valued, are now less so. NOt sure if you are contemplating sale, but in the Bay Area, it would probably sell to a C+V enthusiast in the neighborhood of $600-$700. (That's just a guess on my part.)

...the fact that yours is a track bike will make it either easier or harder to sell. A while ago, it would have made it easier. Now I don't know.

The owner of 100103, also a pista, thinks it is from 1962-ish.

Barry Scott, known for high prices on ebay, sold a pristine chromovelato Frejus pista frame. It was $2500 or best offer, so the final sale price is unknown. He is willing to wait forever for the right buyer. That said, I think you can get a fast sale at $800, and if you are willing to wait, $1200-$1500.

Wow, thanks for all the information. Iíll probably have to reread the thread a couple times. At the lower price range, I might as well just hang it up on the wall again for another 30 years. Or maybe I just need to start riding it again.

I really appreciate your time and all the information.

I picked up a road bike version of a Frejus. Sadly, parts are worth more than the whole. I picked it up incomplete, had fun restoring it. I never put a chain on it as if I end up parting it out, no need to waste the cost of a new chain.
