Bob Jackson frame with lots of Campagnolo pieces - 10 speed road bike

Hey folks,
I have an older Bob Jackson (built with Reynolds 531 if I read the tag right). It has a lot of Campagnolo on it (gears, crank, peddles, seat post, brakes, brake levers and covers, hubs, I think handlebars - see photos). I believe it had Nuovo Record stamped in a few places.

Still rides great. It has its share of nicks over the years but the pinstriping and attention to detail on the paint job seems to catch peoples attention when I ride it around.

Is this thing worth something? Any ideas what year this was built?



Did the fact that i replaced the saddle with something more ... non-neutering ... and new rims for safety degrade its value?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

That looks like a nice bike in fair to good condition. And being in the CA market doesn't hurt. Being a high end bike, it will appeal to enthusiasts and collectors - a much smaller market than the average rider. On the other hand, it could bring top dollar.

If it were me, I'd put a little time into polishing the bike to a shine, make sure everything is in adjustment, and replace tires tubes and brake pads as needed.

Of course, if it really were me, I'd never sell it.

I agree this is a real classic beauty. I would clean it real well, or invest in a professional overhaul. it may take a but but if you put 150$ or so into making it a beauty, you will get top dollar and maybe a grand. as it sits now a posted on CL it looks like any other $200 bike.

you just need to be clean her and be patient for the right buyer.

Thanks for the quick replies. I never really cared much about the paint job per se because it rode so well - more into function than fashion. But when i had a bunch of people stop me to look at it at various times in the last year - I guess it was enlightening. I'm torn on selling it but don't ride it much (doing way more mountain biking) and would rather it be used than put on display for the rest of its existence.

Thanks again for the advice.

Mike

You might consider posting it on the C&V Sales section and give us all first shot. If you don't like any of the offers, you can still go the CL or ebay route.

I am not sure just how olde that is but I think there is something with the brakes that makes it a later '70s I think. anyway the real English lightweight fans will be along when they get into the office tomorrow.

you might try here https://www.bobjacksoncycles.co.uk/default.php for information of date and model

there are sometimes Bob Jacksons on the Hetchins site https://www.hetchins.org/100.htm down in the forsale section, don't forget to check the wanted section too.

OH don't worry about it sitting in the corner looking pretty. there are some here who can ride a twice a day on different bikes and still not ride every bike in a month.

Beach Comber,
Thanks. C&V sales section will be the first place I'll place it if I decide to sell.

Bianchigirll,
I'll try to do some research on it myself to get some sense of its pedigree.

I can see why people might get into some of the older bikes - I've ridden newer high tech bikes but its amazing how well this old "Bob Jackson / Campy" bike without "synchro this" and "carbon that" holds up. But i also prefer manual transmissions in my cars... :-).

Mike
