Sugino Mighty Tour cranks

How much do these go for?

These cranks arms went for $188:

But that seems ludicrous. How much should I be charging for a crankset and BB?

I'd try charging $188.00 and see how it goes?-(

Seriously, there is no way to figure out how much the old stuff is worth. Know only that it will be worth more tomorrow, than it is today. $188.00 for those cranks seems like a lot but there were 10 people bidding on them. That, in itself, should be a clue as to what they are worth. At least, that is how I would look at it.

I have a couple of nice sets. I should give it a try since I am not planning on using them any time soon.

I don't get it that much for a basic set of 170 Sugino's with no chaing rings bolts BB. I would have thought only about $30 maybe $40. But as said there were numerous bids and others have been selling for $100. Makes no since to me you can get a nice set of Campy with BB for less off E-bay right now.

I assume it's the combination of the right vintage look and the 110 BCD that makes them valuable.

Apparently there used to be two people out there who were willing to pay $185.50 or whatever for them, and one of them still wants a set. Find him, and you're good to go.

Sugino Mighty Competition has been hot though maybe the fixie crowd confuses the vintage ones with the current NJS keirin version. But Mighty Tour is just a nice 80s forged crankset copied from Campy. Not particularly rare either. I have one and would like another but at that price I'd buy campy. Maybe two.

They're nice cranks. I have a set in very good shape and I was trying figure out a price for them. $190 seems high to me as well as that is what a new IRD or VO grand cru crank run both of which look to be largely sugino copies in style.

+1 I think the fixie crowd looking for nice vintage cranks that are suitable for FG/SS conversions have driven the prices up some. Also as said vintage and newer there may be some confusion between the track, BMX and road versions of the Sugino competion cranks very similar in look. Most of the really high prices have been for the vintage track version of this crank while I have also seen some pretty insane prices for the vintage BMX ones in choice colors like Red and Blue.

Started at 99 cents. Seller took a big chance and scored big time.
