1972 Woodrup Giro with full Campagnolo equip



I'd like an estimate on valuation of this bike. I'm the original owner; I bought it back in 1972. It was built by Steve Woodrup himself, according to the factory. The title pretty much says it all:

23" full Reynolds 531 frame/fork/stays, chromed stays/fork, Campagnolo dropouts
Campagnolo Nuovo Record derailleurs and downtube shifters
Campagnolo Nuovo Record brakes and levers; hoods intact and supple
Campagnolo Record hubs, laced to Omega A-profile rims
Campagnolo Record headset
Cinelli stem and bars
Campagnolo Super Record crankset and bottom bracket
Campagnolo Record alloy-frame pedals, toeclips, Christophe straps
Campagnolo microadjust seatpost

The only non-vintage item is the seat; the original Brooks was stolen, and it was replaced with an Avocet Titanium-rail model.



The frame is arrow-straight. The paint is not faded, has a few chips, I'd rate it at about 95%. No rust anywhere.

So, what's the best estimate of value?

Thanks, Z

You are a tall guy, so you can take it. the cranks are Record, as is the bottom bracket, commonly known as Nuovo Record. It is not Super Record. The front derailleur is Nuovo Record and not original, this model came out a number of years later. What everyone would like to see is a Record front with the cable stop body, (unless the seat tube has a stop) and ditch the chrome cable guide at the bottom bracket. Replacing the front mechanism is no sin, the original (of the day) probably would have bent at the pivot anyway, Campagnolo had to do a minor design update in about 1974. The rims are not original to the time, but acceptable to most. The derailleur pulleys are later Bullseye, a nice upgrade. Almost forgot, the brakes are a number of years later too, those who want 1972 parts will want the earlier pre CPSC version.

The bike looks bigger than a 23". My guess you are measuring center to center, it sure looks more like a 23.5" or 24". At the time this bike was built, center to top was the common seat tube protocol, center to center for the top tube, which a buyer would like to know. Its size will limit its audience, the short and the tall get the deals.

It appears in nice shape. Rotate the bars a bit for higher styling points, not utility. I do not think you could obtain $1,000. US for it. Most of the offers will be $700. tops. If you have the original paperwork that will help a small bit to some.
