Campagnolo Record 1049 151BCD 51/48T pre.1962

Hello

Any comments on this crankset's value would be much appreciated. As you can see, it is on the chopping block.

Thank you

would think that for this date chrome dustcaps should be in place on the backside of the pedal hole

AFAIK this part was never offered separately so their absence would tend to hurt market value for the collector/historical person

our Tulliana experts may have better information

Thank you, juvela, much appreciated.

I lifted the text below from the Velobase page for the 1049 V3.

"Campagnolo's first cotterless version [is] from 1958. It is unique in that it has "thinner" arms, a raised area around the pedal hole and the back side of the pedal hole has a small chrome-plated cap pressed in. The 1959 through 1961 cranks had thicker arms, had the raised area at the pedal hole but had no cap on the back. All post 1962 cranks came without the raised area at the pedal hole."

I think this may be 1049 V2, from 1959, '60 and '61.

Here is the Velobase page link, but there are no photos.

thank you

in fifty + year o' cycle work only ever had one of these chainsets come through me workshop with the raised area around the pedal hole

hence me error, extrapolating from a sample size of one

Wow, I am surprised to hear they are that rare. Thanks for the input.

...I think the value is in the chainrings. I have one of these 151 BCD cranks, and when I got it it had rings that were 53 and something. I thought it would be easy to source new chain rings, but that turned out not to be the case...took forever to find something I could ride and also afford to buy. Look around on the internet, and see if it's still that way. That looks like a pretty good half step setup for someone.

Thank you. Yes, sounds right. And one can only go down to a 44T inner ring on these 151's, if you can find one. Even a 44 is not low enough for me and the hills around my town. : )

the Zeus Competition Ref. 32 chainset also employs the 151BCD for its inner chainwheel

one advantage of Zeus is that it offered chainwheels down to 43T in the 151BCD
